Southern Culture Artisan Foods Set to Open Flagship Storefront
From a small start-up, to Shark Tank, to a storefront in just under three years, Southern Culture is the freshest proof that the American Dream can really come to life.
On Monday, March 16th at 2pm, Southern Culture will open the doors to its first retail store located in Decatur, Ga. During the grand opening, founder Erica Barrett will offer an array of her southern-inspired breakfast foods. She invites everyone in the Metro Atlanta area to try some unreleased recipes as well as her staple pancake mixes that come in every flavor from Bourbon Pecan to Banana Pudding, flavored stone ground grits in herb garlic and truffle with sea salt, sweet and/or salty bacon rubs, and maple syrup.
The retail store is connected to the Southern Culture warehouse, where all of the goods are prepared by hand in the on-site studio kitchen. The grand opening of the retail store will be an event for new and old customers to sample food, listen to music, and mix and mingle with the Southern Culture team.
This all-in-one hub of all things cultured and southern will also be home to cooking classes, available for sign-up on the website beginning Friday, March 6th. Barrett will teach classes on how to prepare southern breakfasts, traditional southern dinners, and other southern region cuisine. Online sign-up will be available after the grand opening.
“I’m very excited to finally see my customers face-to-face,” Barrett said. “It’s been three years of growing a wholesale business, and now we can interact with our customers on a day-to-day basis--that’s exciting!”Since 2012, Southern Culture has been committed to re-inventing breakfast in a healthy, cultured way. All of the products are handmade and contain fresh ingredients, with no GMOS, no powdered dairy, and no sacrifice on taste. As a globally expanding company, Southern Culture is making southern, homestyle breakfasts accessible and easy--even if you've never been to the Southern states of America. With appearances on the Shark Tank, QVC, and a feature in O Magazine, founder Erica Barrett is well on her way toward steering her customers away from drab, boring breakfasts, one recipe at a time.
