Enter Cathy Cunningham in 1994, a burnt-out, albeit successful, radio executive in Atlanta. The corporate culture was no longer fitting so well for Cathy. The panty-hose alone were about to finish her off. One evening while eating Geraldine's cheese straws, an idea was born. "I'll start a company to sell these cheese straws and call it The Bodacious Foods Company." After all, to Cathy, bodacious means, "As good as it gets!"
The "rest" is history. Now Geraldine's Bodacious Snacks are distributed nationwide. As for Cathy, she hasn't put on a pair of panty-hose since.
