OM Goodness Pimento Cheese, LLC provides “Original” and “Jalapeno” pimento cheese. Based in NC, OM Goodness delivers directly to wholesale accounts across eastern and central North Carolina. Pop-up tasting opportunities are frequently entertained meeting their customers with a savory sample of each product. The Original blend, is creamy, while the Jalapeno adds additional flavor. The inspiration behind the business began when owners, James, Donna and James Boyce Flowers needed funds for a mission trip. After numerous attempts on other ideas for raising the needed funds, a neighbor came by as Donna was making pimento cheese for a family road trip. The curious-next-door-friend requested a sample and after admitting she did not like pimento cheese, but exclaimed with excitement, “OMGoodness, this stuff is awesome” she suggested Donna and her family start making and selling the pimento cheese to provide the needed funds for the trip. This was the first time Donna had ever felt she had success making pimento cheese. Ever since tasters of all ages have stated “OMGoodness this stuff is awesome!” Some have had to leave the product at a trusted friend or relatives home to prevent from consuming the product before the event or activity the product was intended for. In January, 2018, the Flowers family won 2nd place in a “Shark Tank” style competition which has enabled them to continue the dream of helping to provide for missions local and abroad.
