Our Roots

CB’s Nuts started with a light bulb moment after buying a bag of roasted peanuts from a vendor outside a Mariners-Orioles baseball game in Baltimore. Clark Bowen (CB) had eaten a lot of peanuts on his baseball trip that summer, but there was something about the smell and flavor of these fresh roasted peanuts that captured his attention — this was a unique product you didn’t find in his native Pacific Northwest, and he imagined himself learning the craft and selling Mariners and Seahawks fans a better peanut in Seattle.

Soon CB was pushing a small barrel roaster to Safeco Field, and at the time, Quest Field, selling peanuts fresh and hot. At first, he was just hoping to make enough money to pay for tickets to the game and to buy a few $8 beers inside, but finding there were a lot of people eager for his product, he knew he had found his calling. Shortly after, CB met Tami, who became his wife and partner in business, and together they've built CB's from the soil up.
