From small beginnings...
Long before John Wm. Macy's CheeseSticks' wholesale bakery or online snack store existed, John Macy created a "snack factory" in his kitchen! John has been at home in the kitchen for most of his life. During his college years, he catered clambakes for summer residents on Martha’s Vineyard and later briefly apprenticed to his uncle, a Cordon Bleu trained chef and caterer.
In the mid 1970s, just out of college, John started Easy Cook Eaty, a small catering business in Northern California. Never one to choose ready-made appetizers, John created a spicy, twisted breadstick by laminating multiple layers of sharp cheddar cheese and fresh sourdough, hand-twisting strips of the layered dough and baking them twice to a satisfying crunch.
John's "CheeseSticks" appetizers were an instant hit. John believed there was a bigger market for his unique gourmet appetizers, and after a short decade of hard work and a few unexpected detours, he became an "overnight" success.
