Harvard Sweet Boutique: Perfect for Gifts and Special Occasions

cookies, brownies, and toffee from Sue GeorgeHarvard residents who know Sue George’s reputation as a master baker make a bee line for her treats when they’re featured at area functions, including the Harvard Fall Fete and the Harvard Schools Trust Gala. Now the products of George’s culinary skills and creativity are available to the rest of the world through her business, Harvard Sweet Boutique.

The world is taking notice, as indicated by recent coverage at www.dailycandy.com, a fashion and lifestyle website, and a standing order from a major NBA franchise to provide birthday gift packages to the team’s entire staff, including players, coaches and business managers.

George offers a wide variety of brownies, bars, cookies and toffee. She bakes everything from scratch in small batches, using all natural ingredients. George noted that her ingredients are the finest available, and include European chocolate with the highest cocoa butter content, pure double-strength vanilla extracts, premium grade nuts and fresh Grade A butter. She’s rented space in a commercial kitchen in Hudson and is fully licensed by the Board of Health.

George noted that she looked far and wide to find custom packaging materials that convey her sense of style and her products’ premium nature. Her baked goods are packaged in colorful beribboned boxes that recipients will save and reuse. George’s special attention to packaging makes her treats perfect for hostess gifts. “I package everything up a little bit differently, according to the occasion,” she said.

George’s products are available via mail order at her website, www.harvardsweetboutique.com, or at Bolton Orchards. Area residents can also order from the website and avoid shipping charges by picking up their gift packages at the Harvard Cleaners, 9 Massachusetts Ave., Monday through Friday, 7:30 AM to 6:30 PM. Packages are available the day after the request date after noon.

George plans to expand her network of retail outlets gradually. She said she hopes to make connections with the parents of area boarding school and college students, who want to treat their kids to home-made goodies. George said that she’s content at this point to let the business grow incrementally, so she can maintain high quality and provide her customers with outstanding service.

George’s current passion is quite a departure from her earlier education and professional life as a software engineer. Looking for a career that would mesh with her family’s life, she applied her long-time interest in cooking to start a successful catering business. She thoroughly enjoys baking, and states, “I love doing this,” George said. “It’s not work, it’s fun for me.”
