Formerly Zest Special Events
Who We Are
The Bite Brownie is a one of a kind experience for anyone with taste buds. These intense confections create a dreamy bliss of a delicious buttery shortbread crust, which is then combined with up to five different chocolates to create the specialness that is the Bite Brownie, which is currently available in several varieties.
In addition, BBC will continue to offer the melt in your mouth cakes, pies and cupcakes that made us who we are. As with everything that comes out of the BBC kitchen, our products are never made with mixes, canned anything, or fondant.
As we moved to the next retail chapter, BBC promises the same high quality products, exceptional customer service, and a new level of convenience through our centrally located store front.
December 2003 was the accidental start of what would one day become known as Bite Brownie Company when Lance Allred was volunteered by his spouse to make boxes of his beloved brownies and cookies for a company gift exchange. The reception was overwhelming and those who received the initial boxes were soon requesting more for themselves, friends, and their own employees or clients. As this demand grew, so did this simple cooking operation.
What had started as a simple baking project morphed into regular requests for more holiday boxes, wedding cakes, office cakes, savory products and full catering offerings thus allowing the formation of Zest of Memphis, which was officially founded in 2008 under the original name of Buckey’s. This original formation was also the time that Chris Haskins joined Lance to help with the additional demands as they each had full time careers in addition to this baking venture.
By 2010, the brownies and cakes had become legendary, and requests from friends of friends started arriving almost weekly asking for these wonders to be shipped to their location - wherever they happened to be.
Since then, thousands of brownies have been shipped all over the United States with a few also being carried as far away as Afganistan and Australia.
As the business grew, so did the focus on brownies. This new focus has led us to transition from Zest Special Events to Bite Brownie Company, which we are proud to house in Memphis, Tennessee.
