2Betties Launches All-Natural Snack Business in Locust Point

| February 12, 2018 | 1 Comments

The mother-and-daughter team of Nancy Becker and Bridget Greaney launched 2 Betties three months ago out of Share Kitchen, the commercial kitchen at McHenry Row in Locust Point. 2Betties makes all-natural snacks that are currently sold on their recently-launched website.

The first products 2Betties launched are baked, two-inch rounds made of almonds, walnuts, and pumpkin seeds and flavored with a touch of maple syrup or honey. The rounds are gluten-, dairy-, grain-, and peanut-free with no additives or preservatives. The rounds come in Chocolate Chunk or Maple Cinnamon flavors. Customers can buy 2Betties by the box which includes six wrapped packs of two rounds each. A pack is equivalent in size to many energy bars on the market. Boxes are $13.99 each.

Becker and Greaney came up with the recipes at home when experimenting with “nutritious and delicious” snacks they could eat.

Becker has been an entrepreneur for 35 years, owning a business-to-business publishing company, and Greaney recently graduated from the University of Wisconsin. “With my mom not wanting to retire quite yet, we decided to make the changes we want to see in the snack food industry,” said Greaney.

They also hope 2Betties will be a healthy snack that is less intimidating to the everyday person. “We want to be approachable,” said Greaney. “The rounds are not like $12 juices.”

Greaney said she hopes to see 2Betties in everyday grocery stores in the future and not just specialty health food and organic stores.

2Betties will be launching additional flavors of rounds in the near future and is currently developing additional snack products.

All of the products are made and packaged at Share Kitchen. 2Betties currently has one employee who works in the kitchen with Becker and Greaney.

Becker and Greaney will initially sell their products online on their website, and hope to launch a store on Amazon this year. They will also make appearances at local farmers’ markets and events.

Becker and Greaney are from the Washington, D.C. suburbs of Maryland and looked around D.C., Philadelphia, and New York as a place to launch 2Betties before eventually deciding on Baltimore.

“Baltimore really popped up as a business community that is strong and often overlooked,” said Greaney, who also noted that costs were less expensive in Baltimore than other options in the region.
