Ashley Cordner, Owner of Donna’s Home Treats, has been recognized as a Marquis Emerging Leader for their contributions and achievements in the fields of food and hospitality.

Mrs. Cordner was inspired by her grandmother to pursue something she would be passionate about. After finding what she was studying in college to no longer fit this description, she harkened back to the wisdom that had been passed down to her. Her grandmother taught her many things, and of those, it was baking and cooking that really stuck out to her as her passion. After hearing about a local café that was up for sale by the owner, Mrs. Cordner took this as a sign and jumped at the opportunity to make it her own.

Located in Unadilla, New York, Mrs. Cordner serves her community with delicious homemade baked goods and freshly brewed coffees and beverages. The business is both a way to honor her grandmother’s legacy and explore her culinary passion. She garnered previous experience running a business as a receptionist for a local gym, and attributes her success to the community being welcoming, very supportive, and being there for each other.

Mrs. Cordner sees a bright future ahead for Donna’s Home Treats. In the coming years, she endeavors to move to a bigger storefront to meet the demands of her happy customers. Continuing to feel inspired by her grandmother, she wants to expand their baked goods menus. In her spare time, Mrs. Cordner enjoys spending time with her family.
