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. Consequently, Barrett’s Cookies & Biscuits was born the spread the perfect chocolate chip cookie with Raleigh. Their goal? To create delicious cookies and buttery biscuits that taste like they came out of Grandma’s kitchen…and enjoy doing it!
Growing up in Eastern NC, my family cook outs were a must almost every weekend in the summer. My dad would fire up the charcoal grill and throw on whatever meat we had in the fridge. My absolute favorite meal was grilled cheeseburgers and hot dogs, and that remains true today.

According to a study conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 2013, Americans produced 254 million pounds of trash but only recycled about 30% of that. The EPA also estimates that approximately 75% of trash is recyclable, This means that about 45% of what we throw away could be recycled, but end up crowding our landfills instead. Reborn Clothing Co in Raleigh NC seeks to combat this problem head on.
