Prattville – Now when you walk out of Penney’s at the High Point Town Center you can smell the delicious aroma of mom’s homemade cookies baking…only it isn’t mom who’s doing the cooking. It’s Tim Tidwell and crew at the new Nestle Toll House Café.

After working as a Human Resources manager for the past twenty years and living in Millbrook, Tim felt it was time to do something different with his life. He and his wife, Beth, a teacher at Stanhope Elmore, decided on the Toll House franchise because they thought there would be a market for one in the Prattville area.

Tim added that since they opened on January 15, business has exceeded their anticipations and said, “We think we can be successful now and we expect to get even more traffic as High Point continues to add tenants. There will be a grand opening soon with a ribbon cutting and over the next few weeks I will be out visiting businesses to inform them that we can serve their customers or employees by catering for special events.”

Tim and Beth look forward to serving the Prattville area and invite everyone to come out and try some of the delicious items on the menu. They have over a dozen varieties of cookies, sixteen flavors of ice cream, several varieties of brownies and baked goods, hot and cold coffee, lattes, mocha drinks, and a number of other items.

Store hours at the High Point Center’s Nestle Toll House Cafe are from 10 to 9 Monday thru Saturday and from 1 to 6 on Sunday.

There are over one hundred Nestle Toll House franchises in the United States; the first three in Alabama have been added over the last six months. In addition to Prattville, there is one in Athens and one in Bessemer.
