About Us

Born and raised on the Florida and Alabama Gulf Coast, we are passionate about our community and coastal lifestyle. "Beach bums" at heart, we love kayaking, paddle boarding and wandering the miles of powdery, white sand beaches.

Born and Raised in the South, we love what we consider to be the hallmarks of Southern sensibility, good taste and tradition: family, entertaining, food, home decor, and of course monogramming and personalizing everything.

Viki - (affectionately called Sugar by family and friends) and Courtney (Sugar's daughter) dreamed of owning a boutique gift store ever since Courtney was in middle school and was asked to come up with a business concept as part of a class project. Pizzaz (as Courtney spelled it) was the perfect name for the perfect store, she concluded. After all she thought, who wouldn't want to add some "Pizzaz" to their life!

Fast forward 10 years (after Courtney graduated from the University of Florida) and the dream of Pizzaz became a reality. First opening in a small space down highway 98 in Gulf Breeze, the dream grew to a 5,000 sq.ft. boutique encompassing a baby boutique, called Sugarbabies, as well as a gift and home decor store.

We search for uniquely "coastal" items for gifts ("happies" as Courtney refers to them) and home decor. And, of course, we monogram and personalize as much as we can!

We really hope and believe that Pizzaz is more than just a store. Its a place where our guests and customers can reminisce and dream about a special event in their lives and the coastal community we all love.

We are so excited to share Pizzaz with you. We invite you to browse our website, visit our store, join our Facebook page and treat yourself to the coastal shopping experience that is Pizzazhome.com.
