Sean & Brooke started baking their healthy snack bars in 2013, while Sean was in graduate school at University of Miami. Because of Sean's food intolerances to gluten, dairy, soy and egg, finding healthy, delicious, and nutrient-dense snacks was no easy feat. That's why they decided to create their own.
From their kitchen in Miami, FL they created the recipe for the Original brüks bars from whole foods they had in their kitchen. After some trial and error, the Original sweet 'n savory bars became Sean's staple during long days at school and after months of baking for themselves, they started to share...and that's when they knew brüks bars was born.
2013 - Sean got a position as a Sports Performance Coach at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte. brüks bars were born!
2014 - Our first out-of-state orders came rolling in and we expanded our flavors from one to three completely gluten, dairy, soy and egg-free real food snacks.
2015 - Our business doubled, and so did our team. We hired our first part-time kitchen crew and Pete Smith joined us as our COO. Now shipping across the U.S. and with retail partners in almost a dozen states!
2016 - A huge break for brüks came when we were accepted into all of Whole Foods South across five states. Working with retailers across 14 states.
2017 - Our Cherry Espresso bar ranked the #3 Vegan Bar on the Market by VegNews Magazine!
Now, we have four allergen-friendly (and delicious!) flavors: Original, Apple Pecan, Apricot Chocolate & Cherry Espresso. Our bars are sold in more than 120 retail locations in North Carolina, South Carolina, Illinois, Virginia, Georgia, Florida, Michigan, Tennessee, Alabama, Colorado, California, Nevada, Oregon, and Texas!
