Meet the local brothers finding sweet success with a family recipe
Who doesn't love homemade cookies? Most of us don't have time to bake them at home. However, we found a homegrown business creating delicious cookies made by a team of brothers that are sure to make you think grandma baked them herself. The brothers and their grandma, Alona Walker joined Tati Amare in the studio to tell us more about their business, Yummy Brothers.
The boys are Joshua, Isaiah, Caleb and Micha Billingslea and they range in age from 5-11. They came up with the idea for their own business. "We use to bake our cookies and take them to gatherings, and then a few minutes later the whole tray would be gone," said one of the brothers, Isaiah Billingslea. The boys knew they had a special recipe and decided to turn it into a business.
Their cookies are different from other cookies because kids run the business, and all the ingredients are all natural. The boys also say they make their cookies with love.
Some of the types of cookies they make are are double dark chocolate mixed with chocolate chip, snickerdoodle, cookies and cream and chocolate chip.
"It is such a wonderful feeling to see how an old family recipe turned into a business," said Walker.
