Our Story

The perfect pickle starts with the perfect ingredients.

Artisanally brined and hand-packed in the farm-rich region of Eastern Pennsylvania, every jar of Crisp & Co. starts with sourcing local, fresh ingredients right from the farm.

Crisp & Co. was founded in 2012 in Hockessin, Delaware. Founder and unabashed foodie Thomas Peter has a master's degree in biomedical engineering from Cornell University, as well as a serious love for pickles. He combined his two great passions, along with a background in molecular gastronomy, to create our award-winning, uniquely delicious pickles.

As demand for Crisp & Co. products rapidly grew, Tom transferred ownership of the company to Derek Zukovich and his family of Stone County Specialties, Inc. The Zukovich family have been in the specialty food business for over 40 years and have allowed the brand to continue to grow each product on a larger scale—while still maintaining the same care and attention to detail with each batch that Tom set out to achieve.

Today, our lineup goes beyond the ‘cuke and includes our award-winning pickled beets, mushrooms, and dilly beans. We believe that pickling is not just a means for extending the shelf life of produce but rather a means to bring to light its potential! We hope that you will enjoy our pickles with the same zeal in which they are created and enjoy the taste of your favorite fruits and vegetables all year long.
