How does it feel to win?

“We are humbled and grateful for the support of our community both near and far,” Owner Lee Paseka said. “It is because of our sweet customers that we are able to live our mission to spread sweetness and smiles. To win this award being a locally owned and family-run business means the world to us and we cannot thank our supporters enough.”

What makes your team the best? Why do employees choose you?

“Family, fun, and laughter,” Paseka said. “We treat everyone like family and always have fun. One of the best parts of coming to work is that it doesn't feel like work and our customers are like family.”

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
