Krista Taylor is the owner and operator of Krista’s Sweet N’ Treats. Krista has lived in Grand Valley for over 30 years with her husband Bryan and family. Bryan’s family has lived in Grand Valley for generations and Bryan is the owner and operator of TLC-Taylor’s Lawn Care & Handyman Services (future local business spotlight post coming soon!!)
The idea for Krista’s Sweet N’ Treats came to fruition after Krista had been working at our beloved local The Ice Cream Shoppe. Owner Tania of The Ice Cream Shoppe and Krista were talking about having more options available to customers and Krista starting creating ice cream treats using that oh so good Kawartha Dairy Ice Cream.
Krista has since moved the business to operate out of Marie’s Valley Inn so that she could expand operations. That is where I caught up with Krista and chatted with her while I stocked up on some Lil Chippy’s ice cream bars.
I asked Krista what was her most popular product and she said at the moment her custom 6 inch and 8-inch cakes. Customers are ordering cakes for celebrations such as birthdays, graduations and more!! Please note orders need to be placed a week (the Sunday before) an event.
Krista said the support from her customers has been amazing, when we talked about what Krista loved about having her business in Grand Valley her answer was the community feeling and how residents come together and support each other.
