DURHAM, N.C. — Local nut butter company Big Spoon Roasters is growing.
The Durham-based company has launched a crowdfunding campaign to help with its move to a new, larger facility in Hillsborough later this summer.

The new location at 500 Meadowlands Drive would include a more than 20,000 square-foot facility - more than double the current office and production space currently being used by the company. The company wants to self-finance the build-out. 

“Luckily we found our forever home, just six miles down the road, and we would love our community’s support in making it a reality,” said co-founder Megan Overbay.

Big Spoon Roasters was founded more than 12 years ago by Mark and Megan Overbay. The two started out selling nut butters and snack bars at the Carrboro Farmers’ Market. The business has since grown to include a variety of butters available online and at local and national retailers. Whole Foods carries its products in the North, Southeast, Midwest and Southwest and recognized the company as one of its regional Suppliers of the Year in 2020. Big Spoon Roasters’ products have earned numerous honors, including a 2022 sofi™ Award and three Southern Living Food Awards and accolades in Bon Appetit, Real Simple, Oprah magazine and many more.
