Lola Wilburn, Founder and Owner, Lola’s Sugar Pie Bakery
Inspired by her grandparents, Lola’s company actually began when she was a child, when she baked alongside her grandmother and saw the joy that comes from sharing food prepared with love. Blend the baking experience with “Sugar Pie,” her grandfather’s nickname for Lola when she was growing up, and you have the recipe for a successful business.
With a desire to share joy and help others, Lola’s Sugar Pie Bakery also supports a number of community service organizations. Lola has volunteered for Dress for Success and MUST Ministries; her company donates quarterly to Hope House and N-Spire; and 2014 marked the sixth year Lola’s Sugar Pie Bakery® supported Habitat for Humanity with 500-700 lbs. of turtles, requiring 200 lbs. of locally sourced pecans and Lola’s own handcrafted caramel.
Lola and her husband, Kenneth raised two sons, David and Daniel; and in her spare time Lola enjoys playing tennis and meeting people. “Food is a great way to bring people together,” she says. And Lola’s Sugar Pie Bakery allows her to do just that.
