After 25 years in the corporate world serving as an accountant, Teresa Brodie had to decide what to do next. Keeping her current position would mean moving to St. Louis, Missouri—something she knew she didn’t want. Teresa is an only child and wanted to stay close to her parents in Athens. That’s when she says God stepped in to choose for her. She would leave her desk job behind and purchase a gift shop in Athens, Alabama. That shop was called Pimentos.
Making cherished memories with his son was enough motivation for Garrett Dennis to create a fresh dessert concept for Huntsville. As a new father, he was handed an opportunity to develop a treat shop near downtown that offers an assortment of confections in endless flavors. Over the weekend, Twickenham Treats opened to happy families who were greeted by candy lined walls, heaps of house-made gelato, caramel apples, and much more.
