Layal’s Gourmet Sweets is a family-owned business, which was founded in Dearborn, MI out of the home of founder Issam “Sami” Eid. Sami’s wife Hanadi started making baked goods in 2005, and they were so good, the couple decided to turn it into a business, selling to local stores.
The little business got big pretty quickly, and soon the Eids had to move production to a larger building. Layal’s Gourmet Sweets is named after the Eids’ only daughter, Layal.
Currently at this time, Layal’s Gourmet Sweets can be found in over 100 stores in Michigan, and several other locations in Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Tennessee, New Jersey, and Florida. All of Layal’s baked goods are produced using organic and natural ingredients, with no preservatives.
Layal’s is a true family enterprise, with Hanadi creating the pastries, Sami managing the business, and their son, Hassan, in charge of marketing and maintaining the company’s website.
