Barrett’s Cookie & Biscuit Bar was founded as an in-home bakery, located in Raleigh, NC. Its co-founders are two Southern girls whose go-to foods are biscuits and cookies. With compliments from everyone in their lives, Ellen (from VA) and Laurel (an NC native) decided to share their love for the Southern staples with others.
