“You know it’s nothing but full flavor, it's nothing but real ingredients," described Jerri Graham, founder of Westport-based "Nothin' But Premium Foods".

 She's a Westport foodie, quickly making granola history. 

“When I first started out, it was just me -in a friend's kitchen, baking until six or seven o’clock in the morning," she described.

 Jerri Graham is the founding partner of "Nothin But Premium Foods", a Westport-based business looking to make your grab-and-go snacks better tasting and better for you.

“ You should be able to see the ingredients," she said, as she described her cookies. 

 “I tried these bars and I thought they were really exceptional," said Steven Laitmon, her partner. 

 Fellow Westport resident, Steven Laitmon - a businessman with a taste for entrepreneurship, joined forces with Jerri a few years ago.  And, since then, the bite-sized treats have gained big momentum.  

“My wife calls me Mr. Treaty Pants because I love my snacks and I am always looking for the new snack," he said. 

 "Nothin' But Premium Foods" sells largely across Farifield County and here in Greenwich, the cafe manager says the products are selling like crazy. 

“They are definitely some of our best sellers," said Gina Nero of Kaia Cafe.

“They are very easy.  People want something simple  that they can take after class.  They are just the perfect snack," she said.

The products sell as far as Texas.  And, the duo doesn't plan stop any time soon.

So, what's their recipe for success? Jerri says much of it stems from the little town of Westport. 

“When you have a community that goes to the farmers markets and they’re like – oh this is great – you couldn’t do this any place else," she said.
