How a tragedy inspired an Atlantan to start baking—and open this cookie franchise, coming to Roswell
At 22, Lizzy Bullock unexpectedly became a mother when she took custody of her nephew after her sister and brother-in-law were killed. To forge a relationship with him and remind him of his mother—who had loved to bake—Bullock began making chocolate chip cookies with the 3-year-old every Sunday. Years later, Bullock noticed the cookie renaissance happening in the chain world with shops like Crumble, Tiff’s Treats, Insomnia, and others opening locations nationwide. She tried Dirty Dough—a stuffed cookie company based in Arizona—and decided to invest.
The hot dessert pies at Doodle Pies come with fillings like peach, blueberry, brownie, and strawberry (or try a half-half, such as apple-cherry). Customers then choose add-ins like nuts, marshmallows, coconut flakes, and chocolate chips, and toppings such as vanilla ice cream, cookie crumbles, toffee, and sprinkles.
Chef Mel Toledo’s original restaurant Foundation Social Eatery is rising from the ashes one suburb over. The fine dining establishment closed in Roswell on December 31, 2020, after the lease ended.

Two years later, the Foundation Social Eatery team has a new space—55 Roswell Street—in Alpharetta. It is slated to open the first week of December with an adjacent Parisian-style café called Petite FSE to follow in January 2023.
