On a warm August day in 1938, a father and son unveiled the first sample of what was to become Dairy Queen, selling 1,600 samples on the first day, a feat as unheard of as a dragon that breathes ice. Its ensuing prolific expansion was fueled by its frozen treats, which propelled the dessert shop from 100 stores in 1947 to 1,446 in 1950. Today, their dessert recipes remain largely unchanged, and Dairy Queen has added hearty grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, and fried chicken to its menu. Dairy Queen's enormous dessert menu boasts treats ranging from soft-serve cones and blizzards filled with cookies to takeaway ice-cream sandwiches and cakes.

Entering Marlam Cafe is like taking a step back into the good ol’ days. After guests slide into plush red booths, which are set atop shiny checkerboard floors, they peruse a menu of classic American favorites, such as burgers, wings, root-beer floats, and hand-spun milk shakes. The old-school vibe carries into the eatery’s weekly line-dancing lessons and karaoke nights, all of which furthers Marlam Cafe’s mission to serve up an experience to families that’s equally as entertaining as it is tasty.
The husband-and-wife team at Sister's Sweet Creations collaborates with fresh ingredients to hand-make cakes, pies, and confectionary specialties in dozens of gourmet flavors. The shop’s cake pops make mobile cake consumption a manageable undertaking, as each bouquet of frosted orbs arrives gift-wrapped and placed into a bag or box for easy carrying or pulling from a top hat. In addition to cookies and brownies, the team crafts gourmet cupcakes that display rotating flavor possibilities such as chocolate mint truffle or hot fudge sundae. Tiered and sheet cakes let hosts customize desserts to match any situation, from a five-level wedding cake to a full-sheet cake that conveys messages such as "Happy birthday" or "Sorry for trying to cut your other birthday cake with a blow-torch." To craft similarly imaginative baked gifts and edible works of art at home, patrons may inquire about upcoming classes.

What sets your business apart from your competition?
We are the only business in the Greater Atlanta area that produces fresh mozzarella and Italian-style stretched cheeses, such as burrata and scamorza.
What was the inspiration for starting this business?
We decided on a mozzarella business, as we could not find any good mozzarella in or around Atlanta. So, first was the need. Second, I grew up in the Campania region of Italy and my next door neighbor had a buffalo mozzaralla farm. This reminds me of all the beautiful things of my childhood and the smell of my mom's kitchen.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Our fresh mozzarella is all natural [and contains] no artificial ingredients or preservatives. And it is vegetarian, because it is made with a vegetable rennet (cheese starter).
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a customer?
We have customers that buy from us every week of the year, and I think this is the best reaction you can expect.
What?s your favorite part about your job?
Seeing the happy and surprised face of the customers when they first try our cheese.
Third-generation baker Lorre Jacobs Daniel proved that she inherited the family's penchant for sweets when she won The Food Network's Cupcake Wars while representing the state of Georgia. After 20 years of baking in various shops around the U.S., she opened Southern Cosmopolitan Baking Company in Atlanta, where she crafts homemade goodies that pay homage to her mother's Chicago roots and her father's French-Quarter heritage.
Naturally, cupcakes are Daniel's specialty. Mainstays include red velvet, chocolate overload, citrus apricot, and coke classic, but the shop rotates weekly flavors too, such as bananas foster, strawberry lemonade, and campfire s'mores. The bakery's repertoire also includes cookies, cakes, and southern-style specialty sweets including caramel cinnamon rolls, peach cobbler, and bolo ties made of fondant. On another sweet note, Daniel also gives back to the local community by providing sponsorship to start-up bakeries and running an internship program with Fulton County Schools.
