Amy, a new mother, with baby Isabella under her arm and a basket of Whoopies in the other, She set off to make deliveries. Customers knew Amy's schedule and often met her at the door, eagerly awaiting a freshly baked Wicked Whoopie.

She had no business experience, but she was determined. Amy's goal was - and still is - to share her Wicked Whoopies with everyone in America. Over time, Wicked Whoopies production capacity expanded, their customer base broadened, and they were making thousands of pies each week.
