Our Story

In 1924, Ben T. Byrd, Sr. began baking small batches of cookies from his bakery in Savannah, Georgia, packing them in wooden crates, and personally delivering them to neighborhood markets in his Model T Ford. The cookies were soon christened “Byrd’s Famous Cookies” and steadily gained popularity not only locally, but also among visitors who discovered the delicious confections while visiting Savannah.

Four generations later, Byrd Cookie Company is still baking, thriving and earning national acclaim from strategic partnerships with Delta Airlines, Neiman Marcus, Universal Studios and many more.
