Treat Yourself & Treat Others

Kerry Anna's mission is to spread joy & make life sweeter with Tower Treats

Who is Kerry Anna? What are Tower Treats?

An Atlanta native, Kerry Anna Stallings grew up in the Buckhead area, attending Whitefield Academy. Once she graduated in 2014, she earned an Integrated Marketing Communications degree from Pepperdine University in Malibu, CA, then pursued her career in New York City, working for global public relations firm, Weber Shandwick. Furthering her education in startups, Kerry Anna completed the Entrepreneurial Essentials course from Harvard Business School Online.

With a background in food & beverage PR, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a love for cookies, Kerry Anna created Tower Treats in 2020. Standing at 6’2”, Kerry Anna’s height plays into the name of the brand, along with the uniquely cookies with a spectacular height that she offers through Tower Treats. Kerry Anna’s business name was also inspired by the golden rule found in Matthew 7:12 that says, “Treat others the way you want to be treated.” The original luxurious half-pound cookies inspired by her time in New York City draw inspiration from some of the country’s most famous bakeries. 

Why Tower Treats?

Kerry Anna shares, “I started Tower Treats during the 2020 quarantine, on a mission to spread joy, one tall treat at a time. I’m originally from Atlanta but I was living in New York and I was inspired by the many cookie cafes in NYC, like Levain, Big Chip, and more. When I moved home, I wanted to bring a piece of my heart and my favorite treat to the South!” 

Why Smyrna Vinings?
Kerry Anna graduated from Whitefield Academy in 2014, and she has always loved this area. Watching her hometown grow and change alongside her own business has been a special treat – almost as sweet to her as the delicious treats she makes! 

Tell us more about what you offer at Tower Treats:

“Tower Treats are half-pound peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, scooped like ice cream, with a perfectly golden crust and a uniquely dense and gooey center. We use a special secret recipe that gives the cookies their towering height. While they are fully baked, Tower Treats have a cookie-dough taste and texture - especially our best-selling half-pound cookie!

Tower Treats are also the perfect gift for long-distance friends, family, or clients! We work with numerous local businesses and larger companies on corporate gifting to ignite a culture of gifting and sharing. Our treats come in beautiful and reusable packaging, purposefully making them easy to individually gift too.”
