hi! i'm lindsey!
i am the one woman show behind sweet lou's. It's a pleasure to meet you!
having worked in the restaurant industry for almost 25 years, i have gained experience in all facets of this crazy business. baking sort of fell into my lap-after a career in sales and consulting, i was ready for a "fun" job that would allow me to be creative while making memories for my clients.
i started baking pies at loula's cafe-an institution in downtown whitefish, MT-if you've been to whitefish, you've been to loula's! along with the thousands of pies, The owner allowed me to create new offerings. i also decided to take a couple of cake decorating classes to fill my time-who knew it would awaken both a talent and a passion!
shortly after, my now husband and i relocated to marquette, mi-the place he was born and raised for a job opportunity. I wasn't ready or expecting the challenge of finding employment for myself so i decided to make my own and haven't looked back!
Sweet Lou's was born, inspired by a childhood nickname-lindsey lou;the cafe i started this baking path-loula's; and the woman who gave me a chance when I had no experience-mary lou.
it has been quite the learning experience-no two days are the same and i run the whole show. from the baking to the dishes, the order coordination, bookkeeping, supply runs, marketing, and on and on. But the best part definitely is creating a memory for every one of my clients!
thank you to all of my clients-past, present and future! you are the reason I get to do what i love!
