Carrie Morey is an award-winning baker, entrepreneur and, most importantly, mother, wife and daughter who transformed a made-by-hand mail order biscuit company into a booming culinary business and became one of Charleston’s top food stories.
Founded in 2005 as Callie’s Charleston Biscuits, the initial goal for Carrie’s business was to make her mother’s tender, buttery, made-by-hand biscuits accessible across the country. More than 15 years later, Callie’s goes by a new name, Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit, and is widely recognized as an iconic Southern brand with national retail exposure and a devoted following.
Her handmade biscuits, pimento cheeses and other artisan goods have garnered 20 sofi awards from the Specialty Foods Association, and her eateries landed on Fortune’s 2019 100 Fastest-Growing Inner City Businesses list. Today, Carrie operates four grab-and-go eateries, with locations in Charleston, Atlanta and Charlotte, as well as a traveling food truck named Butter. In addition to these culinary establishments, she’s also an author. In 2013, Carrie published “Callie’s Biscuit and Southern Traditions,” a cookbook and narrative on entrepreneurship and life in the Lowcountry.
