Better Butter made its debut on October 17th, 2016 at a local farmer's market in the Orlando, Florida area. However, few know that Better Butter has been in existence for many years prior. The founder of Better Butter, Katie Leavitt, was inspired by her beloved friends and family, who all live very busy lives. She wanted to create a product that could be used to easily cook with and add flavor at the same time. People loved these flavored butters so much that Katie decided to turn this compound butter making into a business.
Interestingly enough, Katie actually went to school for Fashion at Florida State University. She loves getting dressed up, even if there is no real special occasion to dress up for. After graduating college in 2013, she worked as an Assistant Manager at a woman's boutique, and a couple years later, she moved on to work at another woman's boutique as their Back Room Specialist. The fashion related jobs were a dream come true for Katie; however, due to unprecedented growth of her father's company, Katie was asked if she would join his team.
Somewhat reluctantly at the time, Katie left her fashion-related job to work for her father. Looking back, she wouldn't change a thing. She acquired so much entrepreneur, business-related knowledge, she quickly realized she wanted to be her own boss one day too, whether it be in fashion or another industry. Katie's first boss out of college said something to her that stuck..."I am a successful business owner, not because I love fashion, but because I love business." Katie loves fashion, and it will always be a part of her core, but she also loves business, and she LOVES butter.
Katie likes to think of herself as a butter connoisseur. She has always said, "Fat is flavor!". Unfortunately, there are several sugar and junk food companies claiming that fat is bad for you, but the reality is that high fructose corn syrup (which is 20 times sweeter than sugar...yikes!) and other processed ingredients are the real enemies. Fat, in moderation, is good for you! Particularly, all natural fat. Katie takes pride in using only wholesome, natural ingredients in each of the five spreads Better Butter has to offer.
Speaking of the Better Butter spreads, there are three savory flavors: Sun-dried Tomato Basil, Roasted Garlic & Blue Cheese, Sriracha Honey Garlic...and two sweet flavors: Bourbon Brown Sugar Cinnamon & Walnut, and Maple Bacon. The savory flavors are easy to cook with. Instead of using oil or plain butter, use a dollop of Better Butter, which includes herbs and flavorings, so there is no need to add any additional ingredients. Use these flavors to cook with any protein, any vegetable or any starch. Use them as a sandwich spread or melt them and drizzle it over your popcorn. The sweeter flavors are a nice addition to your breakfast items, such as bagels, waffles, pancakes, etc. For more ideas, please visit our recipe page. (Coming Soon)
