Adam and I started The Alabama Pecan Co. in 2017, after realizing that we wanted to create our own business with a product that we truly loved, and that we both were probably a little too wacky to work with any one other than each other.
After two years of long distance dating, we were married in 2017, and began life as a family. Two months later, we found out our family was expanding and five months later, we created The Alabama Pecan Co.
Boy meets Girl
Adam and I began dating in 2015. He was finishing up a long standing career with Chick-fil-a, and I was finishing up my degree while being a single mom. We were both immediately head over heels for each other.
It was during those first few months of marriage that we saw that the pecan accumulation business, owned by my father and close family friend, needed to have a retail side. Starting a business together during our first year of marriage, with two children in tow, had a few learning curves but we loved every minute.
Three years later and we have grown by leaps and bounds, and have had more fun building Alabama Pecan than we could have imagined. The two us of still work every aspect of our business ourselves. So if you give us a call, you'll get to speak to one of us every time. By the way, I'm Elizabeth.
