Meet Will



I have been involved in the hospitality industry for the past twenty years. Even though I have held other jobs, I always seem to find myself back in the business I love. I enjoy making people feel welcome and love the opportunity to exceed their expectations.


I recently spent three years as the Culinary Manager at a nineteenth-century European coffee house. They are famous here in Atlanta for their cakes, cheesecakes, and freshly roasted coffee. Previously I have managed several restaurants in the Atlanta area, and I spent nine years working at Ray's Killer Creek in Alpharetta.


With an extensive catering and event planning background, I decided to combine my restaurant and retail experience to open Black Dog Sweet Shop. To keep prices down for my clients, I chose not to open a retail location.


Quality is essential to me. Black Dog Sweet Shop was founded on creating products that taste like my mother and grandmother just pulled them fresh from the oven. (My mom was a home economics teacher for twenty years, and she taught lots of students how to cook.) My grandmother was outstanding in the kitchen, and all of our baked goods exceeded their standards. 

Our brownies and cookies are something you don't want to miss. Each item is made from recipes passed down for generations. I take chocolate chip cookies seriously, and we balance the perfect combination of crunchy and chewy to create a chocolate chip cookie that will blow you away.

Our French chefs make macarons that are to die for, and we have chocolate artisans who create flavor combinations using only the finest Swiss Chocolate.

One of our specialties is custom logo gifts that are personalized for your business or an individual. There is never any minimum to buy, and there are no art charges. It's a unique way to make your business stand out or an excellent personalized gift for friends and family.

I look forward to having you as a customer, and on behalf of my team, we can't wait to serve you.

Hi, I'm Trish aka Black Dog. My owner Will has taken such good care of me over the years that I wanted to do something special for him. So I personally selected many different handcrafted treats for Will to enjoy. He liked them so much that I decided everyone should have an opportunity to try them. And that is how Black Dog Sweet Shop got started.
