Carrie Morey founded Callie’s Charleston Biscuits in 2005 with the goal of making the tender, buttery, made-by-hand biscuits of her mother accessible across the country. Touted by Saveur, Food & Wine, Southern Living, The New York Times and Oprah among others, her biscuits have garnered freezer space in some of the most coveted retail stores in America. Using no machinery whatsoever and with only the finest ingredients, Morey and her small team of bakers are keeping the tradition of Southern biscuit making alive. With seven different varieties of biscuits, a pimento cheese collection, and retailers all over the country, Morey never dreamed that success would taste so good – buttery good that is. Her products are a one-time NASFT (National Association of Specialty Food Trade) gold sofi award recipient and seven-time silver sofi award recipient.
Morey has appeared live on the NBC Today Show and QVC and has been twice profiled by The Food Network’s hit television show Unwrapped. She was chosen as one of Martha Stewarts’s “Dreamers into Doers” in 2008 and profiled on the Martha Stewart Show. Callie’s Biscuits & Southern Traditions: Heirloom Recipes from Our Family Kitchen, Morey’s cookbook and narrative on entrepreneurship and life in the lowcountry is set to debut Fall 2013.
In addition to her role as owner at Callie’s Charleston Biscuits, Morey operates an incubator, offering baking space along with mentoring to small artisan food businesses on location at Callie’s Charleston Biscuit’s bakery. She acts as a consultant to these entrepreneurs – helping them navigate everything from regulations to production and advising on marketing and growth strategies. Morey is a guest lecturer at the College of Charleston School of Business where for over five years she has been a vital part of the curriculum – presenting the Entrepreneurship Class with a yearly project and valuable lessons from a successful and sustainable small business.
