Sweet Annie’s Artisan Creamery

Upon returning home to the Inland Northwest after eight years living and working in Manhattan, Annie Stranger knew she wanted to contribute to the sense of community here in Spokane. She combined her passion to better our city with a desire to eat regionally-sourced foods.

Through the creation of small-batch ice cream flavors, Annie discovered the intersection where her passion for design and locally sourced foods merged.

Annie attended a small business development workshop at SNAP’s Women’s Business Center, which introduced her to other key resources in Spokane’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. Over the following year, Annie connected with many of the resources available to local entrepreneurs and successfully launched her ice cream business.

When asked about her experience, Annie says, “Spokane showed up for me.”
