About Bud's Best Cookies
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. Bud's Best Cookies began construction of the 89,000 sq. ft. building in 1991. The first cookies were sold in April of 1993. 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. [read more "About Buds'" on our website]
