McKee Foods Corporation is a privately held United States company headquartered in Collegedale, Tennessee. Little Debbie products are primarily cookie and cake based dessert snacks. They come in dozens of varieties, including the top-selling Swiss Cake Rolls, Nutty Bars, and Oatmeal Creme Pies. Little Debbie products are available in most discount, grocery, and convenience stores, both in boxes and individual wrappings. The brand Little Debbie is better known than its parent company. In the 1960s, company founders O.D. and Ruth McKee decided to name a product after one of their grandchildren – four year old Debbie. The original image of Debbie used on packaging and advertising was based on a black and white photo. Atlanta artist Fred W. Hunt did the original color artwork based on a photo O.D. had in his pocket of Little Debbie with a pony. In discussing what he wanted for a logo he pulled out her small photo and said, “Something like this.” Minor changes were made to the logo in 1987. The Little Debbie brand sponsored the Wood Brothers 21 Ford Fusion for several years in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, and switched to the 47 JTG Daugherty Racing team in 2009 season. From sundown Friday to sundown Saturday, the Little Debbie logos are covered or removed, and the crew wears non-Little Debbie attire, as a condition of sponsorship, due to McKee Foods having been founded and run by owners who are Seventh Day Adventists.
