FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- For many moms, there's no better Mother's Day gift than spending time with their kids.
And for some area moms, they get to do that -- and then some. Fairfield County, it turns out, is ripe with mother/daughter and mother/son businesses which, despite the constant togetherness and occassional disagreements, is an added bonus they wouldn't trade for the world.
"Knowing you can absolutely trust and count on your partner is very calming," said Lauren Peden, who runs the Norwalk-based catering company Simply Delicious with her mother, Tracy, also a Norwalk resident. (Go here for the story.)
That mantra of trust and total confidence in each other was echoed by Nate Kelly of Kelly's Four Plus Granola , also based in Norwalk. Kelly runs the company with his mom, Cordy and brother, Will, and said they each bring different strengths to the company. (Click here to read more.)
Weston resident Marilyn Fezza, who is about to launch a new social media platform, The 7Sisters Project , with her 23-year-old daughter, Marisa, said working with family is a "bonus" to creating the site. "The mother/daughter team approach is the most natural partnership in the world," she said. (Story here .)
Weston's Corey and Julie Tolkin couldn't agree more. The mother/daughter duo run Unbakeables , a dessert company specializing in cookie dough bites, out of a Norwalk commercial kitchen (the same one, incidentally, used by the Kelly family). (Read the Tolkin's story here .)
"I like to say I have the best job in the world," said Corey.
Needless to say, Mom most likely agrees.
