May = Mother's Day!


Don't forget your mom (step-mom/grandma/aunt) on Sunday, May 14! Our terrific bakers and deco staff have been busy creating beautiful cookies, cupcakes and cakes for our favorite moms.  A big thank you goes out to everyone involved in creating these products.


May = Celiac Awareness Month

As Sweet Ali's employees, we are well aware of some of the issues faced by those who need to be gluten free (whether they have celiac disease or are gluten free for other reasons).  This is just a quick reminder that May is Celiac Awareness month--let's stay well informed and help educate others about this disease.

Other May Festivities


Besides Mother's Day, May is for graduations, communions and Memorial Day.  The bakeries are busy preparing cakes--MANY cakes--as well as cupcakes, cookies and other products to celebrate these special events.

Glenview First Anniversary--CONTEST!!

In June we will celebrate the first anniversary of Sweet Ali's Glenview! We're looking for ways to promote this milestone and thank our customers. In that regard, we're holding an employee contest to come up with the best idea. 

No idea is too long as it doesn't cost a fortune.

Contest winner receives $25 cash!!

Entries must be received by Thursday, May 18.  Please submit them to Kathi at
