Sugartooth Tours was founded in 2012 by Allyson Tolbert and Sarah Rolleston, born from their love of history, New York City, and all things sweet. Sarah and Allyson have a background in theatre and have performed all over the country in touring Broadway productions. During their travels they would often take food tours, as they believe that the best way to learn about a new city is to taste its food. When they returned to NYC, they decided to start their own food tour company dedicated to serving the sweet-tooth in everyone! They are passionate about connecting consumers with local food artisans, creating communities through food, and giving New York City a small neighborhood feel where folks know their local bakeshop owners and take pride in eating locally. Sugartooth Tours regularly works with non-profit organizations in New York City in support of the wonderful work they do for the community, and donates time, tours, or a portion of their profits to local non-profits. If you have an organization that you would like Sugartooth Tours to support, please contact us with your proposal.
