Hello peeps!
Can anyone help find out the font of this LOGO?

Thank you!

I'd probably start with Bookman Bold using some swash alternates (maily /s). Best Bookman interpretation on the market is Bookmania by fellow Typophile Mark Simonson.

Seems to me that the Dempster's wordmark, U.S. trademarked in 1992, is very close to Goudy Heavyface Condensed:


I used the Berthold version for the comparison but was unable to find a current seller. So here is a link to the Bitsteam version.
If Goudy Heavyface Condensed was used as the basis for the wordmark, some further horizontal squeeze was done and some relatively minor modifications were made to the letters, except for s, which grew a long tail, and p which now has an old-style bottom terminal. The comma is clipped into a stubby tear shape.

Far better track with Goudy Heavyface Condensed suggested by Don. Even matching to me.

Only modification obvious to me, other than those I mentioned in my previous post, is that the lower part of the bowl of p is pushed in to accommodate the bottom terminal on the s.
