Carrie Morey founded Callie’s Charleston Biscuits in 2005 with the goal of making the tender, buttery, made-by-hand biscuits of her mother accessible across the country. Touted by Saveur, Food & Wine, Southern Living, The New York Times and Oprah among others, Carrie and her small team of bakers are keeping the tradition of Southern biscuit making alive. Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit – grab-and-go biscuit eateries are Carrie’s latest tasty endeavor with 3 locations in Charleston and Atlanta.
In addition, Carrie authored Callie’s Biscuits and Southern Traditions, a cookbook and narrative on entrepreneurship and life in the lowcountry. Morey has appeared live on the NBC Today Show, The Martha Stewart Show, Fox & Friends, Top Chef and QVC and has been twice profiled by The Food Network’s hit television show Unwrapped. Her handmade biscuits, pimento cheeses and other artisan goods have garnered 15 sofi awards (4 gold and 11 silver) from the Specialty Foods Association.
In addition to her role as owner at Callie’s Charleston Biscuits and Callie’s Hot Little Biscuits, Carrie operates an incubator, offering baking space along with mentoring to small artisan food businesses on location at Callie’s Charleston Biscuit’s bakery. She acts as a consultant to these entrepreneurs – helping them navigate everything from regulations to production and advising on marketing and growth strategies.
She is a guest lecturer at the College of Charleston School of Business where for over five years she has been a vital part of the curriculum – presenting the Entrepreneurship Class with a yearly project and valuable lessons from a successful and sustainable small business. She has also presented at the annual Southern Foodwriters Conference, Les Dames D’Escoffier International Annual Conference and The Southern C Summit. Corporations, associations and individuals frequently call on Morey to for speaking engagements and “biscuit bootcamp” retreats.
