"A true woman of the Deep South, G Momma knew that family, lots of love, and real ‘budda’ could do as much for your soul as it could your stomach”

Robert Armstrong started Selma Good Company, the producer of G Momma's Cookies to help turn his community around and to honor his grandmother.

“The inspiration behind these cookies is my grandmother, Anice “Gammy” Armstrong. A true woman of the Deep South, G Momma knew that family, lots of love, and real ‘budda’ could do as much for your soul as it could your stomach,” Robert said. “She baked each cookie with careful attention and down home ingredients.”

“Gammy (‘Gah Mee’) would bake these little cookies for all our family ‘get-togethers’, and we would crawl all over each other to get a few. We would just keep coming back again, and again, and again. You really couldn’t eat just one!

The name G Momma (short for Gammy Momma) came about because nobody could seem to pronounce ‘Gammy’ right. They would say “Gai Mee” .. and the correct way is “Gah Mee,” so to make it easy on folks, we shortened it down to G Momma.

Robert’s personal hero is his father.  “He’s courageous in pursuing what he believes is right and is always thinking of others,” Robert said. Robert loves his own family, as well as the family he feels makes up Southern culture. His family has taught him that “you’ve just got to saw wood” when life gets tough.

The Vision:

Selma Alabama is known for a lot of things: Civil War, Civil Rights to name a few. It has suffered from a declining economy for the last 40 years or so and a big reason for that is young people generally don’t move back after college because the lack of opportunity. It has always been a dream of mine to come back and help the area in some way. That dream is the driving force behind the Selma Good Co. along with the love of my grandmother.
