Joyner Improving Business Since 2018

Joyner purchased the original Sugar Magnolia, located beside Eagle Creek Brewery at 106 Savannah Avenue, in April 2018. The popular bakery and restaurant had been closed for months. She completely renovated the restaurant and continually improves the menu and bakery offerings.

She then added an offsite commercial kitchen where they create all the baked goods including breads, pies and cakes.

Joyner took over the lease last march for the new location and thanks to COVID and supply chain issues, it took much longer than they hoped to open. I think when you visit, you will agree with me that it was well worth the wait.

She has added 14 staff members with this addition which brings her total team to over 60. Give them a try today and see what all the buzz is about.
