FEDERALSBURG, Md.- It is all hands on deck at The Great Gourmet in Federalsburg. Ten years ago, CEO Kim Scott started the business in her kitchen with $40. Now, she will be sharing her famous crab cakes on a national stage.

"It means everything and it's my dream and not always do you have your dreams come true," Scott said.

Scott's dream was to one day be on QVC and on Tuesday, April 9, her dream will come true. Scott took a risk by flavoring her crab cakes but it has proven to be a risk that has paid off.

"My crab cakes are new innovative, its something that's new...and it's the new trend. Flavored crab cakes are a really new trend and I think QVC really looks for items that are new exciting and innovative," said Scott.

Scott and her staff are busy making more than 1,000 crab cakes for their QVC debut. Among them are Italian, coconut and Southwest flavored.

"We are making crab cakes all day today and I am actually making every batch," said Scott.

Great Gourmet now employs nearly 50 people and Scott said there is a lot of room for growth.

"I am sure we are going to end up with 75-100," Scott said. "We are growing every year and we are really growing with some labor intensive jobs," said Scott.

Scott's path was not easy, but she hopes to be an inspiration to other entrepreneurs on the shore.

"We can do it, I have done it and dreams come true," said Scott.

From now until Monday they will be scooping, weighing and packing their crab cakes. As the saying at Great Gourmet goes, "This is how we roll."
