Considering Juan and Alvaro Gorrin studied medicine and business, and went on to forge careers in real estate and banking, it's probably surprising to many that they found their ultimate success in a totally unrelated field: baking. The Gorrins, who were born in Spain but moved to Venezuela in their youth, found there was a demand for European-inspired baked goods in South America. They developed the Don Pan brand in Venezuela in 1982, and eventually relocated to Miami, where they opened their first North American bakery in 1995.
Today, their menu maintains distinctly Spanish and South American accents. A bounty of pastries includes guava danish and tres leches, as well as brazo gitano, a sponge cake rolled with chocolate or cream that's popular in both Spain and Venezuela, as well as the section of Canada that uses cake as currency. There are also plenty of savory menu items, including cachapas—corn pancakes served with meat or cheese—and Venezuelan-style tamales bursting with pork, beef, chicken, and veggies.
Mochiberri Frozen Yogurt's founders started their business with two things in my mind: quality frozen yogurt and friendly customer service. In the latter category, they earned the 2013's Military Friendly Franchise award with their smiles, scoops, and discounts. As for the former, Mochiberri's Kosher-certified menu speaks for itself. Beyond staples such as vanilla and chocolate, customers can order creative frozen yogurt flavors including mango, cake batter, and pink lemonade sorbet, as well as rich, hard-scoop ice cream. Smoothies are divided into three categories: "The Classics" include cookies and cream and strawberry; "The Islands" feature pi?a colada and margarita options; and "The Parlor" offers treats such as bubble gum and butter pecan.
Instead of gluten and high fructose corn syrup, all the yogurts, sorbets, and soft-serve gelatos at Happy Cow Frozen Yogurt pack healthy ingredients like active probiotic cultures. The self-serve shop rotates 16 flavors of frozen yogurt, sorbet and soft-serve gelato, which range from white chocolate truffle to Italian biscotti. Upon each customizable concoction patrons can add more than 60 sauces and toppings, including hot fudge, fresh fruit, chopped snickers, and yogurt-covered raisins. Rounding out Happy Cow's selection of sweet treats is a selection of brownies and cookies, which are baked in-house, and taste-tested by the area's pickiest grandmas.
Gwen Willhite founded Cookies by Design in 1983, when an unsatisfying brainstorming session about gift ideas led her to ponder one question: why should flowers and sweets remain separate? Her solution was to design the cookie bouquet, where custom, hand-decorated cookies are displayed on sticks and arranged like flowers in gift baskets. Her invention quickly became a popular gift among locals, particularly those allergic to real blooms or too bashful to look at naked cookies.
Twenty-five years later, there are more than 200 Cookies by Design locations across the country. Each shop's team of bakers creates cookie baskets with a degree of care that matches Willhite's original vision, decorating and arranging sweet shapes for birthdays, holidays, and any other special occasion.
