Charleston-based Know Allergies was founded by Amos Bartlett in 2016 to answer his need for peanut-free snack bars. Today, the company stocks its gluten-free granola bars in Earth Fares stores around the US.

Rayburg, 58, the former chairman and CEO of Twinkies-maker Hostess Brands, has extensive experience as CEO of multiple companies over a 30-year career.

He initially partnered with Bartlett in 2016 and has been asked to take over the reins from August 1, 2017, to guide the company as demand for its products intensifies.
