Meet Kimberly Britt of Savory Bites in Carson

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kimberly Britt.

Savory Bites was derived from a family recipe that was tweaked to take an ordinary cracker to an extraordinary level while enjoying savory flavors in each bite. Founded by Kimberly Britt, who started making her Spicy Original flavor three years ago, after catering an over the top champagne party she received several purchase requests. A few months later her Spicy Original flavor landed on the palate of a cafe owner out of Atlanta, Georgia. The owner expressed interest in selling them but wanted more flavors.

After sitting on the partnership opportunity for a few months, Kimberly decided to play around with some flavors until she developed a total of three flavors; Spicy Original, Garlic Herb & Parmesan Cheese. Those flavors took off like a wild-fire which inspired her to add a few more to the mix including Mango Habanero and Mojito Lime. Fast forward a year later, with booming sales, Kimberly thought it was time for a name and menu change from Gourmet Crackers by Kim to Savory Bites. Today she has a total of 13 flavors and growing; Spicy Original, Garlic Herb, Mango Haberno, Herbal Wine, Honey Pepper, Loaded Potato, California Citrus, Mojito Lime, Bourbon Delight, Lemon Pepper, Parmesan Cheese, Firecracker and Savory Pleasures.

Savory Bites are most often eaten with various cheeses, a chicken or tuna spread, chili, salads or gumbo and paired with an alcoholic beverage; however, they are absolutely delicious eaten by themselves. These delicious crackers are best known by the slogan; “No one can eat just one”.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
In the beginning, my biggest struggles were; time and trust. Juggling my primary full time job, while trying to fill & deliver orders was a challenge. I did not trust having anyone help me in fear of my recipes getting out or the preparation of the product not produced and packaged to my satisfaction. Orders were coming in at such a rapid pace I had no choice but to lean on the help of my husband, daughter and mother. I have since found my balance, with the creation of my website and establishing the terms of orders being filled business is running much smoother now.

Savory Bites – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Savory Bites specializes in flavored crackers. I am known to capture the palate of my customers with my secret savory flavors. Once you have had a bite you are hooked. My customers tell me “No one can eat just one”. Savory Bites are known as the addicting CracK-ers that keep you wanting more.

I am most proud of taking an ordinary cracker to the next level. Others have tried to mimic my spicy original flavor; however, I have yet to hear of anyone that has 13 or more flavors and counting. Because I have so many different flavors with more in the works this sets me apart from others. Although I am based out of Carson California, I not only deliver within the surrounding areas of Los Angeles I also ship anywhere within the 50 U.S. states.

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
My most proudest moment of my career so far is developing the courage to follow my dreams of being an entrepreneur. I have always been complimented on my leadership and business skills, but I have also been a roadblock for myself. Stepping out on faith to create a business from the ground up without having any knowledge of owning a business and watching it grow so successfully have been my most proudest moment.
