In 1979, in Reading, Pennsylvania, Sandy Solmon started baking classic American cookies in a 2-bay garage. Tirelessly testing recipes and ingredients, she struck the perfect balance: a harmonization of flavor, texture, and the elusive dimension of artfulness, the je ne sais quoi, that separates good cookies from great ones. As her cookies caught on and the following for her small production grew, Sandy’s dessert portfolio expanded and Sweet Street Desserts was born.
Today, Sweet Street is the leading innovator in the dessert industry. We’re still owned and operated by Sandy and headquartered in Reading where Sandy is also the head of research and development, leading a team of like-minded, passionate researchers and recipe developers who now bake for restaurants in over 60 countries, on every continent.
Amazed by the power of good food shared, Sandy's collaborative experiences inspired her to open Cafe Sweet Street in Reading, PA. A locavore concept, Cafe Sweet Street features made-from-scratch lunches from pure, locally sourced ingredients. Her latest project, The Sweet Street Mobile Art Kitchen, is a food truck serving up American cuisine throughout the streets of Paris featuring delectable baked goods, indulgent mac-and-cheese and handmade beverages.
Though Sweet Street’s reach is global, our passion for artful food and dedication to quality and innovation remains the motivation behind every one of our products. We challenge ourselves to source authentic ingredients, from hand-selected South American chocolates to locally harvested crisp apples, as part of our rigorous, collaborative explorations to improve our existing recipes and actualize our ever-evolving ideas and inspirations. We then gather around the tasting table and taste for the same qualities that made our customers fall in love with our first batch of cookies.
After a number of years of strengthening our core business, we are entering a growth mode, a time during which we will focus on exciting brand expansion that will make the future of the world even sweeter.
