For the past 30 years, Kerri Noone and The Pastry Box have been satisfying sweet tooths all across the North Attleborough area.
The business opened on Aug. 4, 1993 at 3 Man-Mar Drive in Plainville, a location which Noone plans to remain. Noone started the business with help from her parents, her father doing much of the interior work.
“Making 30 years is pretty incredible in this day and age with the obstacles that have come up over that time that we have been open,” wrote Noone in an e-mail.
Noone said she always liked to bake, a talent she got from her mother who made cakes for others at home, with her daughter watching. She makes everything on-site with her childhood friend Joann, who has been with the business since day one. When the pandemic began, Noone had to close her business, but got through intact due to the support from her customers.
Walking into The Pastry Box, one is treated to a wide array of baked goods, such as hermits, blueberry crumb cakes and frosted brownies. She said that the large assortment of small cookies is quite popular, as they are suitable for any occasion.
“I have customers that have been with us since the beginning and some that would come in with their parents when they were young and are now adults, and some have kids of their own that they bring in,” she said. “Another generation getting started with us and that in itself is pretty amazing.”
Erin Smith is a big fan of The Pastry Box. She said her son loves the pies and they’ve sampled many of the flavors there. His favorite—banana cream pie.
“Delicious!” she said. “Highly recommend, but you need to order in advance.”
