We began selling our homemade croissants at farmers markets in 2019 and the demand exploded. Our idea began when breakfast sandwiches were our most requested item. During quarantine in 2020, we designed our food truck and it was ready to hit the road in November, after an eight month wait. As the world started to open back up after Covid-19, we opened our window and were able to serve our Flakey Friends once again!
Quickly growing out of the truck, we found ourselves needing more hands as well. Once we found our brick and mortar, we have gained a wonderful staff and love to be able to serve our customers from one location.
Don't worry, this is not the end of the food truck! Once we get our shoppe fully staffed and trained, we will be back on the road for events, festivals, and pop-ups very soon!
Authentic French Technique
We utilize French technique when making our croissants, which takes three days to execute. To produce the buttery flakey layers, it requires patience and skills that our Head Pastry Chef Wendy Schay has mastered.
We use European style butter containing 83% butter fat, which adds the delectable salty sweet to all of our baked goods. We strive to use many fresh ingredients that are local to Central Arkansas, from a variety of local farms and businesses. Everything from the peanut butter and jam to the croissants are made from scratch.

She started teaching at Pulaski Technical Collage in 2015 and earned the Barbara Peters Award for Teaching Excellence 2016-17, and the ProStart National Restaurant Association Teacher of the Year 2020.
