Huckleberry’s, was founded in January 2011 by 16-year-old Michaila Cowles. Since grade school, Michaila had her heart set on becoming a chef and baking “pretty things.” As early as fourth grade, she wanted to attend Johnson & Wales to study culinary arts and pastry. In 2011, at the beginning of her sophomore year at Polk County High School, she began working toward making her dream come true; in the spring of that year, she was accepted by early admission to Johnson & Wales University, Charlotte.
Fast forward to September 2022, Michaila and Executive Chef Tony Lawter welcomed their son home! As life took off and became even busier with a new baby at home, they decided it was time to re-focus their professional lives to match their personal goals. Hence, we now have now entered the world of specialty events, weddings and catering full time!
