Byrd Cookie Co. Acquires Selma’s Cookies

Byrd Cookie, one of the largest and fastest-growing independent cookie, snack and gift companies in the United States, has announced the purchase of Selma’s Cookies, an Orlando-based bakery, as part of a strategic expansion.

The acquisition makes Byrd one of the specialty food industry’s largest cookie companies and expands the company’s product line to include brownies, crispy rice treats, and large soft-baked cookies.

“This is really going to expand our footprint nationally and really move us to a new level as far as just being in the specialty food, cookie arena, it makes us a bigger player,” said Byrd owner and CEO Stephanie Lindley.

The company’s production facilities strategically located near major theme parks in Orlando, Florida, and Anaheim, California, were included in the sale.
