As a child, CeCe looked forward to her family’s summertime trips to North Carolina, where she could reconnect with faraway relatives over cookouts. One of her fondest memories from this time is making homemade blackberry ice cream with her Grandma Ruby. Years later, CeCe would look back on these days with nostalgia; she dreamt of opening a business that would bring families together over a tasty summertime treat.
In 2008, her dream became a reality with the opening of Sweet CeCe’s. Like wig salesmen to the Constitutional Convention, families flocked to the self-serve frozen-yogurt shoppe, where they could create their own desserts from dozens of yogurt flavors and toppings. The small shoppe got so popular that CeCe franchised the business. Today, families in 11 states can create sweet memories within the sherbet-colored walls of a Sweet CeCe’s.
Every muffin and loaf of bread that fills Wild Flours with its enticing aroma begins the morning as freshly harvested grain headed for the store's mill. Bakers grind out healthy, whole grain flours from organic, living grains, bagging some for sale while taking a toll with which to create tasty baked goods. Their ovens sear flavor beneath the crispy crusts of cinnamon raisin bread, zucchini bread, and gluten-free chocolate chip cookies.

Unlike jerk-chicken pudding or fried-tuna Twinkies, ice cream makes for a delectable dessert that properly caps off any meal. At MaggieMoo’s Ice Cream and Treatery, patrons can sample a huge menu of ice cream and other treats that are sure to slap a smile on any face and massage taste buds with sugary strokes. Try ice cream in flavor combinations such as Strawberry Skateboard with sprinkles, gummy bears, and marshmallows, or Cotton Candy Ski Jump with M&Ms and marshmallows. With one mix-in, prices range from $2.99 to $4.99 for a cup or cone, $3.99 for a pint, and $6.99 for a quart. Ice-cream cupcakes ($8.95 per 4-pack) can be enjoyed with a spoon or spoon-fingers. Dream cakes ($19.99+), on the other hand, come in appropriately oneiric flavors such as Pecan Perfection and Strawberry Cheesecream, and most are available in six-inch, eight-inch, and sheet-cake sizes. Health-conscious hedonists can indulge in strawberry-banana, mango, and mocha smoothies (starting at $3.95), whereas ice-cream pizzas ($19.95+) topped with white-chocolate curls will perplex pizza-party attendees before blasting away reservations with deliciousness.
