At least once in our lives, cookies, muffins, and other baked products have been part of our favourite sweet food. What is being loved most about them is the fact that they are available in a variety of flavours. Nowadays, non fat and sugar free baked products have been a fad but nothing truly beats the satisfaction and comfort sweet foods can bring. Sweets are readily available in every corner of city streets but only a few produces a fresh perfect bake.
On the corner of Fourth and State Street in Erie, Pennsylvania, a family owned bakery known as Ye Ole Sweet Shoppe opened its doors to all local sweet teeth in 1983. And for over 25 years now, the shop has been a must visit for their delicious and freshly baked cookies and other pastries. You have a lot to choose from on their menu including cookies, brownies, muffins, and other desserts, as well as handspun milkshakes or smoothies.
Ye Ole Sweet Shoppe first started as a very small business with only one gas oven and a product line of cookies in four varieties. A decade after the shop was sold to Jean Alecci, a cousin of the original owner. It was her who brought fame to the shop, because she was totally devoted to reaching success on the baking industry. Jean initiated new recipes and even introduced new food products such as ice cream, a variety of coffees, as well as gift arrangements. The shop became very popular in Erie within 16 years of Jean’s management. She then sold the shop to long time employee named Lea Yadeski. This was the halt of Jean’s job in the baking industry. On the other hand, Lea is continually improving all aspects of the business including location, ambiance, services, and food products. These are all done aiming to attract more customers, and make them loyal and regular clients. As part of Ye Ole Sweets Shoppe’s advertising, YeOleSweets.com was also launched.
