TASTE THE LOVE AT PRETTY PERK
“Having a cupcake business is what we dreamed of when we were little”, said Marilyn and Kristin Halwix from Chicago, Illinois. Over the years life, school and work separated these sisters. Marilyn stayed in Chicago to attend college to become a Pastry Chef and Kristin moved to Fort Myers, Florida with her fiancé in order to provide a better life for their newborn child who was born with a heart defect. Even though Marilyn and Kristin were miles apart…their friendship kept them connected.
A year ago they found themselves back together, this time in Fort Myers – each wanting a little bit more out of life. Their passion for tea, coffee and delicious cupcakes led them to create a partnership with AMW & Associates. Wanting to make their dream a reality, Pretty Perk was born. Over the past few years, family and friends have had the pleasure of enjoying their fabulous cupcakes on a regular basis. It became clear that these two sisters had something special, which led them selling their amazing Mallun Cupcakes™ for others to love.
Hoping to raise enough money to open their very first retail location in Naples, Kristin and Marilyn can be found baking and running their business with big smiles on their faces. When Kristin was asked how she balances life between working full-time and caring for her son, who had another open heart surgery last March, she stated,
“Every day I get to live my dream of working alongside my sister and making these absolutely delicious cupcakes. What a valuable lesson I am teaching my son! Plus, he loves when I bring work home with me “
