Welcome to Blue Crab Bay Co., Purveyor of Classic Coastal Cuisine Since 1985
|Pamela Barefoot, founder and longtime president of Blue Crab Bay Co.,
has sold the company to Eastern Shore of Maryland native Elizabeth Lankford.
"I had always been looking for an opportunity to return home to the Eastern Shore," Lankford said.
"I look forward to leading the company and expanding our national reach."
Barefoot will remain on as founder for at least two years.
In 1985, a young woman named Pamela Barefoot had a dream: to move to Virginia’s isolated Eastern Shore and survive with her creativity. The rural coastal peninsula, bounded by the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, offered a blank canvas for entrepreneurial opportunity, inspiring Pam to start her own business now known as Blue Crab Bay Co., a Bay Beyond Inc. brand and a Virginia certified women’s small business enterprise.
