Hi, my name is Cameron.
I’m the name behind Cameron’s Seafood, the largest fresh seafood retailer in the state of Maryland.
If you have lived or visited the state of Maryland you know that we take seafood very seriously. There are few things that gets us Marylanders more excited than tearing into a bushel of delicious blue crabs encrusted with crab seasoning surrounded by our friends and family.
THE LIGHTBULB MOMENT
Every year, thousands of customers flock to our 14 retail stores and food trucks across Maryland, Washington DC & Pennsylvania to get their fill of Maryland blue crabs.
One morning, a crab-lover from West Virginia rolled up to one of our family-owned food trucks in Hagerstown, MD, to buy a bushel of Maryland blue crabs. He told my cousin Pey, who was working on the food truck that day, that he was so sick of paying exorbitant prices for dodgy crabs in WV, and to him it was worth driving 6 hours, round trip, to come get the real Maryland crabs from us.
That same night, Pey came to me with the idea to start shipping our crabs and crab products directly to people’s homes. Within weeks, we had launched a brand new website with an online store and started shipping our family’s products to blue-crab junkies and seafood-lovers across North America!
A STRONG FOUNDATION
Cameron’s Seafood was founded in 1985 by my father, Allen Manesh and my uncle Bijan Manesh. True to their Persian heritage, their mission was not only to sell seafood but also to prepare and serve it to their customers at an affordable price so that everyone could enjoy delicious seafood. The family now operates 14 locations across the Maryland-Washington-Pennsylvania market.
