Greg Cain started CrabPlace.com in 1997 in Crisfield,
Maryland, America’s seafood capital. As business grew,
his brother, Matt, joined the company to head up operations.
The two began by selling and shipping fresh Maryland
crab caught daily by local watermen. Their unique packing
and delivery processes kept crabs at their freshest,
and our satisfied customer base grew quickly. As a result,
the company received the SBA Maryland Entrepreneurial
Success of the Year Award in 2001.
In 2005, Greg and Matt invited Rebecca Bent into
the CrabPlace.com family to be in charge of product
development, photography, and marketing. She is a Baltimore
native and the author of the cookbooks Burgers (2004),
Down at the Shore (2006), and Everyday is Delicious
(2007). She has been featured on the Today Show and
ESPN, and in Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, and elsewhere.
Her crab cake recipe earned CrabPlace.com recognition
as “The Best” online crab cakes in 2006 from the Kiplinger’s
Personal Finance Magazine’s Annual “Best of the Best”
Greg, Matt, and Rebecca have been crabbing since
they could walk, and still have fun pulling them in
and teaching their own kids. They also take great pleasure
in serving up CrabPlace.com seafood products to family
and friends and sharing their passion for Chesapeake
Bay foods and the shore lifestyle.
