Jill Kinney Pharis is the originator/owner and established Sweet Jill’s Bakery in 1987. Learning to bake farm favorites from her grandmother throughout her childhood, she perfected the old-fashioned cinnamon roll. They were an instant success. Shortly thereafter, these freshly baked delights were the talk of the town and the local beach communities.
In 1994 Sweet Jill’s Bakery began providing a wide variety of pastries to local cafes, corporate events, and businesses in the area. In addition to retail, both stores gradually expanded into catering, wholesale, delivery services to coffeehouses, airlines, airports and shipping to customers nationally.
