Born in March 1922 in South Florida, Ferris Lee Bryant was a hardworking and ambitious man. Father of 16 children and husband to Lottie Mae, he made his living as a farmer and quickly gained respect in the small town of Dixie, Georgia. His business acumen led to his success as an entrepreneur. Years after his passing in 1988, he was honored with the naming of Ferris Rd; the very road where he built his farm. Many of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren including Ferris Lee owners, LaKisha and Tabitha Brooks have followed in his footsteps to become successful business owners.
After moving to Orlando in 2017, LaKisha (top) found herself gaining weight very rapidly and wanted to make a lifestyle change to get her weight and health back on track. Committing to a clean diet and exercise was no problem, but the options for healthy AND tasty snacks were limited, so LaKisha made her own.
After sharing her story with a young brand ambassador in Whole Foods who told her "you can make your snacks into a company," LaKisha decided to partner with her sister Tabitha (bottom) to create Ferris Lee. Tabitha brings over 16 years of food industry experience.
Ferris Lee experienced moderate success in the Central Florida area, but both sisters decided back home to Georgia. With their move, Ferris Lee took a short hiatus in 2019 and is officially relaunching in June 2020 with a new line of products.
LaKisha and Tabitha are excited to bring Ferris Lee back to market and to encourage others to invest in healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle.
Given this title by a family-friend, Arianna serves as the company's official taste tester. She is the precocious daugher of Tabitha Brooks and has a knack for flavor. When she likes a new product or flavor, she displays her signature thumbs up. Along with her mom's experience in the food industry, Arianna's father is an award-winning chef who once served President Obama.
It is important that Ferris Lee's products are not only for fitness enthusiasts and health conscious individuals, but are also favored by kids and approved by moms.......and dads too.
