Landry’s Confections is Renee (Landry) & Jesse Lohrey. We grew up in the beautiful western Maine mountains in Franklin County. Renee’s family raises animals and has ridiculously large gardens so we weeded, milked goats, cleaned the chicken coop, picked potato bugs alongside the rest of the family. Now we help collect sap for maple syrup, make jam and cook, cook, cook when we’re all together. Our family loves to grow food, to cook and to eat, and it’s this joy of making good food from good ingredients that we want to share with you.
We started this company in 2014, that year we also got married and bought our house – you could say we are overachievers. In the last eight years we have had two amazing little girls and our business has gone through many changes. We once thought that we would have a retail bakery in our house, but that turned out to be very difficult after our first daughter was born. We then focused on working with Bread and Butter Catering, making desserts for 60+ weddings and events a year. This came to a screeching halt in March of 2020, all of our weddings postponed to 2021. After a whirlwind of a year with all the 2020 weddings + the 2021 weddings we have chosen to make desserts on our own terms and rather than 2 or 3 weddings a weekend. This will give us more freedom to be creative and spend more time with our family.
We want to thank everyone that has helped us along the way and we hope you are as excited about this new chapter as we are!
