About Us

Chinaberry Foods is owned and operated by Tommy Samuels. We believe keeping your family close is a strong tradition in the South and are the fourth generation of the Samuels family to enjoy living on the same property in Thomson, Georgia. Graced with numerous Chinaberry trees, our land is the location of Chinaberry Foods.

In his desire to promote Southern-style foods to discriminating palates, a new business emerged and he soon began baking and selling his signature cheese straws. Our straws are a true Southern delicacy that became an overnight success. Chinaberry Foods quickly emerged as a premiere location that supplied wedding planners and caterers with addictive cheese wafers. We’ve been making them ever since!
