We’re not chefs…we’re just a ‘COUPLE OF COOKS’
If you know us, you know how much we like to eat and drink, but more than that, we love to cook! Cooking is the thing that brought us together years ago – and besides each other, cooking is our passion.
We especially love to cook for our family and friends. In addition to writing a cookbook for our families, catering our own parties and holiday dinners, and hosting friends for intimate gourmet themed suppers, we’ve also been making our awesome homemade snack mix and giving it as Christmas gifts for years. Months before the holidays, people would start asking us when they were going to be getting their snacks. Everyone kept telling us that we should be selling it!
We’ve always talked about doing something with our food and our recipes, but we’ve been too chicken to even try…since most new restaurants fail in the first year. And while operating a food truck offers more flexibility, the thought of working 20-hour days doesn’t really appeal to us at this stage in our lives.
So, we just kept talking about it…and talking about it…and talking about it. Never actually doing anything about it! Until now…our New Year’s Resolution for 2016 was to finally stop talking about doing something and actually do it!
Since people liked our snacks so much and it was fairly easy to make, we decided to try out our original recipe “‘CRACK’ Mix with pork cracklins” at our local farmers market. After a few weeks we started to get some repeat customers! That’s when we decided that this was a viable business opportunity we wanted to pursue, so we began the process of founding our company, Couple Of Cooks Snacks.
To say it’s been an interesting journey would be an understatement – stressful and exhausting…confusing and complicated…but always fun and exciting! Until you start your very own food business, you can’t imagine how flattering it is to have a stranger taste your product for the first time, while you watch their eyes roll back in their head as they exclaim "Oh my God, that's good!!!" But we can tell you, it’s pretty freakin’ cool.
We hope you like our snack mixes, and we’d love to hear from you. Email us anytime at email@example.com. We appreciate your business, and we thank you for your support!
