Lita’s Treats was birthed from the vision of Lolita “Lita” Lindsay, a Southern Belle who was born to bake! From a very young age, Lita was surrounded by talented bakers who nurtured and encouraged her hobby.  At the tender age of 6, she learned to master her family’s cherished recipes and by 9 years old, she’d won her first baking competition!  Time passed and Lita eventually married, welcomed a beautiful daughter and had a fulfilling career as a Paralegal, but baking continued to be her first love.

She started Lita’s Treats in 2010 as a part-time endeavor and found time and time again that her customers would ask “Why don’t you do this full-time?  You NEED to do this!”  There’s a saying, “Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”…and with that, after much prayer, fasting and belief that God would provide, Lita stepped out in faith in February 2014 to pursue baking as a full-time venture.  From there, things moved rather quickly; they found the perfect location in May of that same year and by August of 2014, the first Lita’s Treats storefront opened its doors.

Over the years, Lita has built upon her family’s recipes and developed her own signature style, using her God-given creative talents to conceive exciting flavor combinations like Strawberry Dream Surprise or her popular Chocolate Turtle cupcake.  From decadent brownies and cinnamon rolls to unique designer cupcakes, Lita’s Treats is your ultimate sweet tooth indulgence!  We have something for everyone and all treats are guaranteed to be delicious and made from the heart, not from a box!

Lita was the only full-time manager of Lita’s Treats for the first few months of business, but in April 2015, she broke her ankle, which made it difficult for her to manage the bakery alone.  As a result, and with continued prayer, she and her husband Paul decided now was the time to go “all-in” for their dream and Paul left his full-time Corporate position to co-manage the bakery.  Since that time God has proven faithful and continued to provide; their business has grown exponentially and their relationship has simply flourished. They are humbled and grateful for all the support they have received and are excited to see what’s next in store for “Lita’s Treats”.

In their free time, Paul & Lita enjoy spending time with their lovely daughter Leah (9), serving in ministry at their church home, traveling and fine dining.
