founder and saucy C.E.O., started learning how to make desserts while
standing on a chair to reach the kitchen counter. She has always valued
the feeling of comfort and love that you can give to someone by preparing
good food for them. While studying engineering in college and graduate
school, Cory learned valuable research, presentation, and problem-solving
skills. However, she saw many of her friends getting jobs where they worked
in front of a computer designing small aspects of enormous systems. She
yearned to create an entire product that she could taste, touch, and feel.
After she left graduate school and entered the workforce, her desire to
create a unique product continued to grow. As a result, Cory began thinking
about her passions. She realized she always loved desserts - especially
ice cream sundaes. So, she decided to combine her ingenuity with her love
of desserts to create a line of gourmet dessert sauces. Cory founded Shootflying
Hill Sauce Company, Inc. in the spring of 2003. The name comes from a
road in Centerville, Massachusetts that her family would take every summer
to get to their favorite ice cream shop.
Cory has received a ServSafe Certification and is a member of Chefs Collaborative http://chefscollaborative.org. She is a board member of the Massachusetts
Specialty Foods Association http://www.msfa.net and the Federation of Mass Farmers Markets http://www.massfarmersmarkets.org.
