So, 19 months later, where is Sweetie’s now. Well, I’m happy to report that we have been too busy to blog. However, it is still just Aaron and I, plugging away harder than ever. We still are not advertising, the budget on a new business is just too tight without going into debt, which we have refused to do from day 1. We have a steady stream of amazing regulars who have championed our success. We have gained some temporary help and lost it, but I have found an amazing assistant who has become an amazing friend and a bridesmaid in my upcoming wedding. Yes, Aaron and I are now engaged and planning a wedding. We have been featured in the Boston globe, and baked all 8,000 ginger cookies for Mystic Seaport’s lantern light tours last christmas. Hopefully they will choose us again this year. We are now in works with a local hotel to provide baked goods daily for guests breakfast. We are planning to stay open until 6 this fall, providing dinners and wine to go, in both personal and family sizes. We are expanding our homemade ice cream counter and are planning to offer crepes as well. We are entering the grinder festival to get out the word that: YES WE DO OTHER THINGS! In fact, our breakfast and lunch menu largely outnumber our sweets! We have survived 2 sailfest weekends, and multiple food strolls. We have donated to many local causes. We continue to bake amazing cheddar bacon whole wheat dog cookies, and you can often find Aaron and I chasing dogs and their owners down Bank st to offer them a free sample (or 5). Our bakery case continues to evolve, especially with the addition of Sam to my baking team of 1. Our sandwich menu has changed to incorporate fresh wraps and salads. We continue to learn and grow with the support of my parents and our loyal customers and look forward to being that “tiny cupcake place with the pink and teal awning” on bank st for many years to come.
