Byrd Famous Cookies

Indulge in Savannah made tasty treats & wine

In 1924, Ben T. Byrd, Sr. began baking small batches of cookies from his bakery in Savannah, Georgia, packing them in wooden crates, and personally delivering them to neighborhood markets in his Model T Ford. The cookies were soon christened “Byrd’s Famous Cookies” and steadily gained popularity not only locally, but also among visitors who discovered the delicious confections while visiting Savannah.

Now the fourth and fifth generation of the family run the company. Celebrating 94 years of baking, Byrd’s recipe for success includes its continued tradition of hard work, superior product quality, and outstanding customer service. They continue to bake in small batches to deliver the superior cookies our customers expect, producing up to 35,000 cookies per day.
