Home Sweet Vanilla

What made you want to start this business?

Last Christmas I made homemade vanilla extracts as gifts for family and neighbors, and people loved them. This gift-giving experience is what sparked the idea of Sweet Home Vanilla.

What’s your favorite part about what you do?

The best part about what we do is the freedom to create thoughtful homemade gifts inspired by our love of all things vanilla, our family’s favorite.

Do you have any employees?

We do not have any employees, it’s only my husband, Chris and I, with the occasional help from our son Noah.

What are your future goals for the business?

We have many future goals for Sweet Home Vanilla! We would like to expand our product offerings and be on the shelves of specialty shops and boutiques. Currently we are working on vanilla infused maple syrup with another local artisan and are thrilled about the opportunity.

Interesting facts about you and/or your journey as a business owner?

I work as a School Counselor and I love it, but my passion lies in entrepreneurship and building our family business.
