Alice Lombardi, the Bean Counter founder, started the busiuness from heer home kitchen in 1998, selling selling desserts to local Worcester businesses until opening the Highland Street store in 2001.

“Our journey from a home kitchen to the heart of Worcester has been incredible,” said Lombardi. “This renovation is a testament to our commitment to providing not just delightful treats but an unforgettable experience for our cherished customers.”
