Snack Knack

Earlier this year, Lia Ballentine moved the headquarters of Yumday, a snack subscription business, from Austin, Texas, to Wilmington.

She decided to open a brick-and-mortar store at 225 S. Water St. in Chandler’s Wharf as part of her vision of collaborating and supporting other mission-minded organizations.

Yumday’s clients now include large corporations such as Meta and Intuit, who share the snack boxes as gifts to clients and employees, but Ballentine hopes to reach locals and travelers alike who make their way through the shop.

“My general love of storytelling is a lot about people and community; food and snacks is a fun way to do it,” she said. “I am still telling a story and building a business for myself in a space that I enjoy, which is food.”
