Sydney Koby: Creating Her Own Market One Bite At A Time

July 3, 2019

Sydney Koby is young, ambitious, and already crushing it in a space that is extremely competitive.

With a background and formal training in baking creating something delicious isn’t new for the Founder and Owner of BiTE SNACKS, but making something delicious with crickets is a whole other ballgame. 

What Sydney has already accomplished with her business is impressive and inspiring. As a self-proclaimed introvert it was awesome to sit with her and allow her the space to tell her story in more detail. While communicating outwardly may not come naturally to her, she seems to be doing something right as her brand is growing and gaining more and more buzz.

Hosting Sydney was a pleasure and we will most certainly do round II with a proper set up lacking a very busy 1 year old baby. 

Be sure to reach out and engage with Sydney and her brand online and look for BiTE SNACK products in stores near you and also on!
