Lou’s Buns was unintentionally started in 2017 while Lou’s CEO, Alexandria was in college. She made cinnamon buns for a friend’s birthday and discovered a love and passion for baking them. Not to mention the fact that everyone loved them! Years later as a second-grade virtual teacher due to Covid-19, Alexandria planned on getting a part-time job during the holiday season. She mentioned applying for a job to her father, and he quickly asked her why she wanted to continue to trade time for money…one job was enough, why not start a business? From that moment, with the support of her family and friends, Alexandria made it her mission to ensure that the world tasted “the best buns you’ve ever had!”
