Prior to starting Bud's Best in 1991, Bud Cason owned and ran Greg's Cookies in Birmingham. He purchased the business in 1970. Sales were only one million dollars per year. In 1983, he purchased Bishop Baking Company (a snack cake company) in Cleveland, TN. He sold the two companies in 1986 when revenues were 23 million. Bud had to sign a 5-year non-compete agreement.
Bud's Best Cookies began construction of the 89,000 sq. ft. building in 1991. The first cookies were sold in April of 1993. Sales for 1993 were 1.8 million. Bud Cason started a whole new concept (bite size cookies) and very few of his "old" customers were willing to switch brands. They were still selling the full-size, economy cookies. Bud was now making an upscale, bite size cookie.
Since 1995, Bud's Best has been contract manufacturing for a national baking company and won the "Co-packer of the Year Award" in 1998 for manufacturing excellence.
They offer their cookies in 2.25 oz bags, 6 oz bags and cartons. Then they also have Vanilla Wafers, Sugar Wafers and Saltine Crackers as well.
