Our Story

Growing up in North Carolina, I spent hours in the kitchen with my family.

Becca Wright with her Grandbetty the creator of Piedmont Pennies

The Piedmont Pennies’®  recipe was passed down from my Grandbetty, who taught my dad how to bake Pennies as a kid.

Around the holidays, you would find me beside my Dad baking Pennies, with the entire house smelling of cheese and butter.

What started as an MBA class project in August 2020, is now a snack company,  with 5 employees, two flavors, and 100+ retailers across 8 states.

Piedmont Pennies, named after the “Piedmont” of NC, the area between the mountains and the coast, is an ode to this great state and the people in it.
