While working on one of our food trucks in Hagerstown, MD, co-founder Pey Manesh learned he had customers driving 6 hours to pick up our genuine Maryland Blue Crabs from the Chesapeake Bay. They were used to buying more expensive, fake “Maryland-style” Blue Crabs cooked with Old Bay. You asked for Maryland Seafood Home Delivery and we listened!
FACT: Maryland Crabs from the Chesapeake Bay are special because our climate stays colder that other East Coast areas. The Blue Crabs here hide under the mud during the cold months which forms a layer of fat on their meat that gives them a sweet, buttery flavor and that’s why they are famous!
Chesapeake Bay Maryland Blue Crabs are famous because they hibernate - their meat gets fatty which is why it tastes sweet and buttery
Cameron and Pey learned that not everyone has access to real Maryland Blue Crabs, or they settle for Maryland-style crabs thinking it’s the real deal. Our goal is to make Maryland Blue Crabs, Crab Cakes and Crab Soups from the Chesapeake Bay more accessible than ever before.
