How did your company get started?
Like most good stories, this one starts with love. Growing up in a family of seven opinionated, stubborn, loving sisters and two wonderful brothers meant that discussing food was a constant in Hala’s house. Meals were where everyone talked, shared and reached across the table to say “I care”.
For Hala, food nurtures our souls as much as our body.So, when her family needed a way to have a nutritious, flavorful breakfast option, she baked her first scone – straight out of a box. It was exactly what she thought it would be – slightly dry and very uninteresting. Then, the box disappeared. That’s when the love came in. Hala decided to bake them herself. After all, she had worked as a professional chef before.
First, it was a classic scone – cranberry orange. Then, her sisters got a hold of it. And, as always, the sisters had requests. “Can’t you make an apple caramel?” “No, a chocolate scone that would be great.” “I hate sweet – what about savory scones?”
Let’s just say – when the sisters start, they go on for a while.
Soon, Hala was creating all these different flavors. And stocking her freezer so that anyone could grab and go. Orders came in from friends and family. She was giving them away as gifts. New flavor requests came in. They became a fall-back easy meal any time of the day, not just breakfast.
The scone bug had bitten, hard.
And the obvious question came – why not make it a business?
That’s when Hala started selling at farmer’s markets. She went from one market to six in a year and quickly outgrew being in a shared kitchen. That led to our first store at 6955 McGinnis Ferry Rd, Johns Creek, GA.
So, make sure to swing by the store, a farmers market or order online. We hope that you will take the time to enjoy scones like the sisters do – sitting together with a hot cup of coffee, out on the deck, talking about life.
Give us a try – you won’t regret it.

You can use the sweet ones as dessert – layer the triple chocolate with vanilla ice cream, chocolate fudge and whipped cream.
