Sweet Little Things, LLC has set up shop in East Alton at 611 E. Airline Drive. The RBGA coordinated a grand opening ribbon cutting for owner, Rose Badasch, and her team, on Saturday, April 29, 2023.
Rose Badasch is a familiar face to many throughout the Riverbend. Badasch shared that she has opened Sweet Little Things “to share the love of cooking and baking with every single person that walks in the door.
“We want to give you food that will fill your bellies, put a smile on your face, and make you feel as if you’ve come home,” she added. “Why? Because each person that comes in will be treated like family. Food is not just meant to be nourishment. It’s a way of bringing people together and sharing a common experience. So when we say, ‘come taste what you’ve been missing,’ it’s not only about the food. It’s the friendships as well.”
In joining the RiverBend Growth Association, Badasch noted, “I believe in what the RBGA stands for. For years, I’ve watched the leadership skills of the individuals within help to grow not just their companies, but also the community as a whole. To me, the RBGA stands as a consolidated force to help move businesses forward and to keep this area a place where people will want to visit, shop, and be a part of. Who wouldn’t want to be involved in a group so dedicated to the Riverbend?”
Badasch noted, “I’ve stated on my social media: I believe that food can be a real communal experience. I would love to hear feedback from those in the RBGA, and gain knowledge from those who are skilled. Perhaps in the near future, I could expand the bakery/restaurant. I also want to give back to the community I’ve grown up in and continue to show the Riverbend how food can bring us all together.”
