Sweet Persuasions, a local bakery located on Hill Rd North has been a hands down favorite for everything sweet and tasty for years.
Founded in 2006, this little bakery has been outperforming many of it's competitors by continuing to follow a simple recipe. That recipe you may ask? High quality, fresh never frozen ingredients, never any preservatives, all scratch made, and willingness to go above and beyond for each and every customer. This may sound like a lot of marketing voo-doo but speak with Melissa and her staff and it becomes very clear that they are not messing around and take their dessert very seriously! As their motto illustrates 'Dessert First!'
We urge you to see for yourself, stop by their location at 1260 Hill Rd. N and try some of their wonderful creations. All of the choices may be a little overwhelming at first, but we highly recommend their 'Ugly Bar', 'Snuggle Pastry' or any of their cake or cupcake varieties. The 'Applesauce Cake' is downright amazing! Add that or some fresh biscotti to some of their fine coffees and you are ready to take on anything the day will throw at you.
This no compromise attention to detail and pride in their product also showed in the Pickerington Gingerbread House competition, where Melissa Lewis once again took first place and her daughter Mia, took honorable mention this year. This truly is a family business, with 3 generations as well as their husbands involved and as Mia showed everyone, the next generation is gearing up to make their mark!
2016 will mark their 10th year in business and the Sweet Persuasions staff has been hard at work in making sure next year is one for the records. Their website was recently given a complete professional overhaul, including galleries of some of their past and current creations to inspire your next wedding or event. In addition, their e-commerce store is now available for everyone to browse their massive product catalog and place an online order for their favorite must have items. Be sure to check out their new website at www.sweetpersuasions.co
As if growing online sales, large event catering and new product releases aren't enough, we have also heard rumors that there is a food truck coming next year which will join the growing Columbus street food scene. The staff is still a little secretive on all the details but they are projecting to start hitting the street in Spring 2016. With a promise of "Here at Sweet Persuasions, we are so much more than just cake", we are impatiently waiting to see what is next for this community favorite. Keep up the great work and save an Ugly Bar for us!
