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.
Five Spot Frozen Yogurt never wants any customer to spend more than five bucks on their frozen yogurt. Though self-serve portions are priced by the ounce, they top out at $5, promising no one hungry for yogurt will ever pay more. Self-serve cups can be filled with 16 different flavors of frozen yogurt, then decorated at a bar with more than 40 toppings that range from fresh-cut fruit to fresh-bought sprinkles.
Beginning as a humble sweet-potato-pie purveyor, Welna Scott expanded her dessert endeavors to include traditional and boozy cupcakes, as well as specialty cakes and other styles of pies. Adorn tables forged from scarecrow bones with two classic autumn pies, or choose one dozen cupcakes in flavors such as coconut with coconut whipped cream or strawberry with whipped strawberry cream cheese. Of-age adults opting for both pie and mini cakes can request alcohol infusions for the latter, a small modification that combines the three most popular luxuries: dessert, drinking, and turkey basters.
Rum cakes are the treat of choice at JustRumCakes, though there is more to this business than meets the eye. Seven styles of rum cake pepper the menu, ranging from raisin rum cake and pecan rum cake to pineapple rum cake infused with fresh pineapples. Celebration cakes make for a tasty and eye-popping addition to any occasion, and feature designs such as 3D renditions of objects or images printed on the frosting. The menu also teases tongues with indulgent cupcakes in flavors such as vanilla swirl and pineapple express.
