Thank you for stopping by! Don't forget to take a look at our sweet treats!
The owners, Keith & Laura Robbins, were born and raised in Maine. The whoopie pie has been a part of them their whole lives. After 45 years of Maine winters, they were ready for a change of scenery and climate. Keith had an opportunity to move to Florida for a job and after a lot of thought, both Keith & Laura decided to make the move. Within a matter of 8 weeks, they sold off their home and business. On September 29, 2017, they packed up their belongings and moved to Florida.
In April 2018, Keith was on his way to work and realized he hadn't seen a whoopie pie anywhere he had been in Florida. In Maine they were everywhere. Gas stations, convenience stores, grocery stores,... everywhere. So, Keith called Laura and told here about this revelation. She, too, had not seen any. Keith asked here to make up a batch and bring them to his work. Later that day, Laura arrived at Keith's work with a batch of whoopie pies. Everyone at the shop loved them and asked how they could get more.
Mama Laura's Sweet Treats was born. Laura took orders from the people at Keith's work and it started becoming a regular part-time gig for Laura. They then started selling them at the local flea market on Saturdays. The whoopie pies started getting a following. They both then decided to buy a food trailer to sell them at local festivals. This required a commercial kitchen. The trailer was ordered and the hunt began. They viewed several locations and finally agreed that their now bakery was the best one. Well, since they were putting in a commercial kitchen, they may as well sell retail as a take out. They both agreed Monday - Saturday where the best days to be open. If they were going to be open 6 days a week, when would they have time to go to festivals with their trailer? They trailer was put up for sale and sold a week before the grand opening, September 29th, 2018. Exactly 1 year to the day after they left Maine to move to Florida.
Keith & Laura both work at the bakery full-time. Keith left his job to pursue this endeavor full-time.
