When Debbi Fields opened the first Mrs. Fields in 1977, it wasn’t all sunshine and cookies. Between her lack of business experience and the unorthodox business model—selling only cookies—not many people believed in her. More than 30 years and a global franchise later, it’s safe to say the doubters are eating their words, at least when they're not busy stuffing their faces with one of Debbi's signature semisweet chocolate chip or oatmeal raisin and walnut cookies.

The wild popularity of Mrs. Fields's cookies can be attributed to the richness of their basic ingredients: real butter, whole eggs, and special blends of chocolate. Classic flavors include chewy fudge, peanut butter, and white chocolate macadamia, and seasonal flavors complement the lineup throughout the year. Select varieties can also be made into cookie cakes of various sizes and shapes that add a delicious twist to any celebration or milk-truck spill.

In 1988, Auntie Anne's founders Anne and Jonas Beiler purchased a Pennsylvania farmers'-market stand, where they experimented with dough until they created a pretzel that seemed to strike the perfect chord with their customers. Today, at their more than 1,350 locations worldwide, the pretzel makers still hand roll the original recipe but have added to the menu with inventive options such as the eight signature dipping sauces. The team constantly explores new uses for the pretzel dough, such as wrapping it around hot dogs and slicing it into bite-size nuggets. To transform the snack into a meal, they accompany it with specialty drinks, including frozen-lemonade desserts.

When not twisting dough, Auntie Anne's team partners with the national charitable organization Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, which raises funds to fight childhood cancer. Auntie Anne's also reaches out to the community through fundraising opportunities.

Angelica's Bakery

When single mom Bobbie Stokes lost her job in 1990, she looked to her family for inspiration. Her mother was a skilled baker, who taught Bobbie everything she knew, and so Bobbie took years' worth of family recipes, gathered the support of a few friends, and decided to go into business for herself. The sweet endeavor began in Bobbi's own basement as she baked cakes for friends and family members. But soon word got out and businesses came calling, eager for a slice of one of Bobbi's signature desserts––especially her famous, multi-tiered caramel cake. The demand grew so much that the working mother and grandmother––Angelica's is named for her granddaughter––eventually needed not one, but two locations in order to meet it. Today, Bobbi's cakes can be found on the menus of soul food restaurants throughout Chicago, as well as in the dessert cases of many supermarkets. 50 employees stay busy baking desserts around the clock, filling bundt pans with homemade batter, and drizzling the resulting pound cakes with homemade lemon icing, or portioning out individual servings of sweet potato pie or crumbly peach cobbler. Despite the hectic schedule, the bakery accepts orders for custom wedding cakes and also creates themed cakes for birthdays, graduations, and extra-special after school snacks.

Labriola Bakery Café's owner and namesake, Rich Labriola, began baking artisanal breads at his Oak Brook store in 2008. The son of a pizza maker, Rich knows exactly what makes a perfect bun or baguette: the crackle of the crust, the large crumbs, the earthy flavors trapped inside. Everything that comes out of his oven—from the wood-fired pizzas to the flaky almond croissants—is a work of art that began back when Rich learned the secrets of bread making from masters of French, Italian, and German traditions. Chicago magazine has hailed his bakery as a destination for gelato made fresh daily in seasonal flavors, which include fruity summer selections and a cold variety that celebrates winter.
