2013 Michael Solomon Speaker Series

Entrepreneurs David and Nique are the co-founders of Back 9 Dips, a popular and successful line of snack dips.

Back 9 Dips was born from products the Mealeys created for their barbeque catering business.  

At the urging of friends and happy customers, the couple turned a favorite recipe - Bubba’s Buffalo Chicken Dip – “The Chicken Wing on a Chip” - into an entrepreneurial venture that grew into a successful business.

In less than four years, the Mealeys have transformed a small catering business into a company that sells products in 4,000 retail outlets nationwide and ships to customers from coast to coast. David serves as president and Nique works as director of marketing for their growing company.

The Mealeys and Back 9 Dips have been heard on the “Bubba The Love Sponge”
syndicated radio program and seen on ABC-TV’s “Shark Tank,” “The List” and “Good
Day Tampa Bay.” The couple has also been profiled in Entrepreneur Magazine.
