Terri Dreisbach and Leah Guarino met in October 2018 and connected instantly over their love of food. Terri has been a pastry chef for over two decades and specializes in creating unique sweet and savory flavors using ingredients that are typically not always seen in desserts. Terri has worked in top restaurants in NYC and San Francisco. Leah works in education. To put herself through school she spent more than 10 years working in the food industry in NYC and Detroit and remains connected to her foodie roots.
The concept for Sweet & Salty Queens began in 2020 in Astoria Queens with the idea of sharing their love of pastry with others. In March 2022 the pair and their small business relocated to Peekkskill, NY where they hope to grow their business with the goal of opening a store front.
