Jennifer Colombo, owner of Just Delicious Scones (Image: Jennifer Colombo).

Sugar, flour, perseverance and support from her local credit union have made Jennifer Colombo’s scone business and tea room a success.

Colombo started Just Delicious Scones 10 years ago with a $50 oven from Craigslist. What she didn’t have in her bank account she made up for in ambition and drive. She sold her car to pay her first month’s rent for the building she was leasing, and then sold her espresso machine to buy ingredients to make her first batch of scones.
