Mama Biscuit’s Gourmet Biscuit Co., America's first gourmet biscuit baking company, has grown by leaps and bounds. From the first online sale in May 2015, MBGB quickly became the biscuit darling to local wineries, wholesalers, and supermarkets like Wegmans and Whole Foods. Other food markets have retained the gourmet biscuit leader to make private label goods.

Mama Biscuit, founded by Lesley Riley, has expanded out of an incubator shared the kitchen at Clustered Spires Bakery located in Frederick, Maryland. Beginning March 2017, MBGB is relocating to 7,500 square foot warehouse and office space in Frederick, Maryland. In 2017, Mama Biscuit will more than double their staff to 20 employees and with projections to double that number by 2018.

No stranger to the kitchen, Riley owned and operated her own successful, Southern-style restaurant in North Carolina. Mama Riley’s mission is to "bring a Northern flair to a Southern classic" and quality is baked into every item she allows out the door. Mama Riley and her team, have created over 50 signature heart-shaped, biscuit recipes. The top sellers include both sweet and savory offerings, like her famous Chicken Pot Pie and Bananas Foster with salted Pecan Praline, Kahlua stuffed Brie with brown sugared pecans, Spiced Mango with Tequila-Lime glaze. Gluten-free versions are available.

“The unique flavor combinations of our gourmet biscuits transport your taste buds back to your childhood. Some of our biscuit flavor profiles, are familiar, reminding you of family recipes. We bake love and nostalgia into every heart-shaped biscuit,” Riley says.
