Thank you for visiting our website! We are a small home based business located in Memphis, TN making all of our delicious chocolate covered cherries by hand. It is a labor of love and we greatly appreciate each and every order we receive.
What's in a name?
Many people have asked, "Why Shirley Ann's?" Well, many years ago when my mother was a young girl, her momma was diagnosed with breast cancer. Breast cancer eventually took her life at the age of 36. My mother was just 10 years old. When I started making these cherries at our home a couple of years ago, I never thought that I would be getting the orders that we do now. So, I decided to create a name for our small business and knew that I would love to do something special for my mom by naming it after my grandmother, Shirley Ann.
A few years ago I decided to branch out and create a Facebook page to reach more customers. At that time I have made a lot of boxes for people I know personally and through work, but never someone from outside of that circle who has contacted us directly. In the first email I ever received from someone I didn't know, the sweet young wrote about how her grandmother, Shirley Anne, just passed away a little over 2 months ago of breast cancer. I felt like it was a straight sign from the Lord that my grandmother was giving me her blessing for this growing small business.
