We caught up with Burney’s Sweets & More owner Anthony West to learn more about how this location got started and what makes this tasty shop stand out.
What is your background?
Anthony West: For the past 24 years my background has been in the cosmetic arts field. I was a hair stylist for close to 17 years and a Salon Consultant for 7 years.
What inspired you to open a Burney’s Sweets & More?
Anthony West: What inspired me to open my own bakery was one of our clients who used to bring me a dozen croissants every time she came to the salon. Then I found myself driving 45 minutes one way to buy them for my family and friends. Cooking has always been something I’ve enjoyed and a great stress reliever.
What makes Burney’s Sweets & More so unique?
Anthony West: We are unique because we have our own recipes that are exclusive to the Burney’s franchise from our famous croissants to our 15 layer chocolate and caramel cakes. We also make 90% of our items in house and fresh daily such as donuts, cream horns, apple fritters, sticky buns, and cinnamon rolls. We also have New York inspired sweets like Lobster tails, crumb cake, and black and white cookies.
What croissant would you recommend for anyone new to Burney’s Sweets & More?
Anthony West: I would have to say try the Smores filled with chocolate fudge and topped with marshmallow fluff and graham crackers.
What’s your favorite sweet you sell?
Anthony West: Aside from our famous croissants, I would have to say the cream cheese cinnamon rolls would have to be what I lean toward the most.
Favorite Beach: I’m blessed to have two great beaches! Wrightsville Beach and Carolina beach.
Must Do: God’s work is on full display at Mason Inlet. The tropical-like water during the day and the sunset in the afternoon are absolutely gorgeous.
Favorite Restaurant: True Blue Butcher and Table hands down.
