A new dessert option has arrived in Ormond Beach.
The Peach Cobbler Factory, located in Ormond Towne Square at 1474 W Granada Blvd., hosted its grand opening on Saturday, Oct. 28, offering free dessert samples to the public as well as face painting and photo opportunities.
The Peach Cobbler Factory was founded in Nashville, Tennessee, in 2013 by Juan and Tami Edgerton with the goal of “crafting delightful desserts that evoke the feeling of grandma’s kitchen.”
Toya Wallace and Oliver Ross, owners of the Ormond Beach Peach Cobbler Factory location, are Daytona Beach natives and attended local schools. Ross attended Tomoka Elementary school and Wallace attended and graduated from Seabreeze High School.
Before opening the Peach Cobbler Factory, Wallace was a registered nurse in Atlanta, Georgia, and the Daytona Beach area for around 18 years.
“The company is family oriented and not a huge company which made it easier on us and more comfortable," Wallace said.
As an entrepreneur, Ross works with land developments, restaurants, and various other companies. He also owns and manages Crab Stop in Daytona Beach located at 240 S. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
“This right here is something that is diversified," Ross said. "It’s an easy blueprint to follow so we teamed up, jumped on board, and started creating this location. Our plan is to have 10 stores wherever there is a demand for them."
The Peach Cobbler Factory offers 12 flavors of cobbler and 12 flavors of pudding, which can be made into shakes. They also offer brownies, cookies, cinnamon rolls, churros and waffles that can be enhanced with a multitude of toppings.
Ross and Wallace said their main goal is to be present in the community and to employ high school students, college students, and people in need with jobs and an opportunity to learn and grow with them as a company.
“We want to be a part of the community and for the community to know us as the owners,” Ross said, “We met a lot of people that own small businesses in the area and introduced ourselves and they welcomed us with open arms, and we could not be more grateful.”
