Lola Cookies & Treats was born in 2002, when owner Lorraine Hooper — a.k.a. “Lola” — began selling her scratch-baked goodies at the Leesburg Farmers’ Market.Lorraine had wanted to be a baker ever since working in a cookie store during high school; she apprenticed at bakeries across her home state of Massachusetts. But then she got distracted by the glitz of magazine software, ending up in New York City with Sports Illustrated, where she managed the magazine’s operations for the 1996 Olympics, among other feats.
When Lorraine moved south again to Virginia a few years later, the call of the cookies resumed. Fueled by blue-ribbon wins at the Virginia State Fair, her rep grew beyond the farmers’ market. In 2006 she opened a storefront bakery in Leesburg’s historic downtown.
Lola’s growing fan base loved the tiny store and its fierce devotion to scratch baking. The accolades started piling up: An on-air visit from FOX-5 News; the cover of Loudoun magazine; high praise from the Washingtonian magazine (“Cookies don’t get any better”); and selection as “Snack of the Day” by celeb foodie Rachael Ray.
Lola’s expanded first into cupcakes and then into custom cakes; now it’s Loudoun County’s top boutique bakery. Lorraine never gave up on the farmers’ market, though: She still sells there, in person, every summer.
