“Desserts open doors, hearts, and conversations.”
~ Sandy Solmon, Founder of Sweet Street
In 1979, in Reading, Pennsylvania, Sandy Solmon started baking classic American cookies in a 2-bay garage. Tirelessly testing recipes and ingredients, she struck the perfect balance: a harmonization of flavor, texture, and the elusive dimension of artfulness, the je ne sais quoi, that separates good cookies from great ones. As her cookies caught on and the following for her small production grew, Sandy’s dessert portfolio expanded and Sweet Street Desserts was born.
Today, Sweet Street is the leading innovator in the dessert industry. We’re still owned and operated by Sandy and headquartered in Reading where Sandy is also the head of research and development, leading a team of like-minded, passionate researchers and recipe developers who now bake for restaurants in over 60 countries, on every continent.
Though Sweet Street’s reach is global, our passion for artful food and dedication to quality and innovation remains the motivation behind every one of our products. We challenge ourselves to source authentic ingredients, from hand-selected South American chocolates to locally harvested crisp apples, as part of our rigorous, collaborative explorations to improve our existing recipes and actualize our ever-evolving ideas and inspirations. We then gather around the tasting table and taste for the same qualities that made our customers fall in love with our first batch of cookies.
The sweetness of dessert is beloved by every culture on this planet of ours. In this spirit, all of us at Sweet Street invite you to a culinary experience destined to be shared with cherished family and friends.
