Odon Pastisseria was founded in 1870 by Lola’s great grandparents. They converted the front room of their house into a storefront and started making candy. Lola grew up in this house. She remembers starting to help out with the business when she was 12 years old. Lola turned 78 last week. She is happy. Genuinely happy. She describes her life as being very full- and has never imagined doing anything else.
