Kim + Steve Washburn

Owners

Hi, We are Kim and Steve, owners of Laurannae! Laurannae was brought to life in 2012 by myself, Kimberly (Rannae) and my sister in law, Jessica (Laura). We knew we wanted a business name that was unique so by combining our middle names, the name Laurannae (pronounced Laura- nay) was created. After several years building our brand, launching Eleanor, the cupcake caravan, adding custom cakes to our offerings and eventually jumping into the wedding industry, Jessica stepped away in order to focus her time on her family and other creative outlets. Stephen and I married in 2016 and are a blended family with five incredible kids Emilee, McKenna, Santino, Jackson and Gavin. As a family, we spent several years running Laurannae as a full time cake shoppe and food truck for both public and private events. In the spring of 2018, our dream of a store front came to life when we opened our first brick and mortar in the Rose District. From day one, we were blown away by the support Laurannae received and we quickly realized, we needed room to grow. In the summer of 2020, we purchased the building Laurannae is in and started dreaming up plans of a full remodel. The following year was a busy one for us as we opened our 2nd location in the Tulsa Arts District in May 2021, remodeled and re opened our Rose District location in August of 2021 and opened our third location inside Church on the Move BA in December of 2021. Laurannae is what it is today because of big dreams, wonderful community and our incredible management team and staff. Although Steve and I now work primarily on the administrative and operational side of Laurannae, we love to see your faces when we’re at the shoppe and strive to maintain a positive experience for our customers. We are forever humbled by the opportunity we have been given and hope that when you visit our stores, you feel the love we have poured into them. Our dream for Laurannae has always been more than just another coffee shoppe but rather, a space that creates an energizing environment, perfect for building relationships and community. We still have bigger dreams on the horizon so stay tuned for more future growth!
