A Great American Story

Cambridge Spice Company, LLC, owned and operated by Cecil and Ervina Johnson, opened for business in 2013.

Cecil a native of Penllyn, PA and Ervina a native of Cambridge, MD met in Baltimore, MD. They immediately realized their shared love for cooking and eating delicious meals. After a brief courtship, they married and took residence in Columbia, MD. Shortly thereafter, their only child, LaSara Johnson Kinser was born. Their love for family led them to move to Cambridge, MD to be closer to more members. The move proved to also be for another reason after Cecil's love for cooking barbecue with a rub they blended became popular while  entertaining family and friends. The demand for the first blend, "original", brought them to start the business named for their supportive Eastern Shore town.
