Our Story


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

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.

Pennies proved to be a crowd favorite, and thanks to encouragement from friends and family, as well as my entrepreneurship cohort at UNC Kenan Flagler Business School, I decided it was time to spread the power of Pennies.

Today, with my husband, Coble, we are sharing Piedmont Pennies, named after the “Piedmont” of NC, the area between the mountains and the coast, as an ode to this great state and the people in it. We are made from simple ingredients and baked with love - and we hope you’ll enjoy us and share with friends.

 

Stay Cheesin!
