The bakery also offers low-carbohydrate and gluten-free treats for people with specific dietary needs.
Founded by Sue George in 2007, Harvard Sweet Boutique gained in popularity as an online retailer accepting orders through its catalog and website. It will continue its ecommerce operation selling its homemade goodies across the country, in addition to its new storefront.
“Residents of Hudson and the surrounding community have ordered our gourmet sweets for almost six years,” said Susan George, owner and founder of Harvard Sweet Boutique. “We're excited to offer local residents in the Hudson community a place to grab a hot cup of coffee and enjoy our handcrafted desserts the freshest way possible – right out of the oven!”
Harvard Sweet Boutique also recently implemented a $5 flat fee for all ground shipping orders through the boutique’s website, www.harvardsweetboutique.com
