Thank you for stopping by and visiting our new store.  We are very proud of our products and the history behind making this business what it is today.  We are family owned and operated, and we are located in historic district of downtown Sumter, South Carolina.   We have been in business since 1991, successfully selling our products to satisfied, repeat customers throughout the United States.  Thus far, we owe our reputation primarily to word-of-mouth recommendations from our customers and limited direct contact presentations to retailers.

 

The business began when our founder, Mrs. Betty Lee Brunson, retired from teaching and started a small catering business.  A life-long love of cooking was the impetus for this endeavor. In short order, the demand for her services became overwhelming.  With encouragement from her mother and two sisters, she decided to concentrate on packaging and selling a line of grits and rice mixes, developed from old family recipes handed down from generation to generation.

 

To insure that the products maintain their southern charm as well as a South Carolina connection, we have given them names that are readily identifiable to you all.  When one hears “Charleston” or “Hilton Head” or “Kiawah”, the origins are evident.

 

Surely, many of you have seen and purchased our products in specialty shops and seafood markets while vacationing in our beautiful state.  The coastal region is where these lowcountry dishes were born and where they remain staples of the cuisine enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.
