A Funnel Cake Story
Hi! My name Patrick D. Young. I am the proud owner of Funoh Brands Inc. dba FUNOHCAKES. I was born and raised in Charlotte, NC. It was at the age of 10 when I had my first funnel cake at Carowinds Amusement Park. At that moment I fell in LOVE with the pastry and decided to try my own mixture at home. After many attempts of trying different recipes and A LOT of flour, I finally got it right and start frying funnel cakes for my friends and family. Ironically, at the age of 16, I was super excited to get my first job working at Carowinds Amusement Park. In just a few months, I proved myself to become one of the youngest food and beverage managers for both funnel cake locations in the park. I absolutely loved this job and making people happy with Funnek Cakes! I graduated from Olympic High School (O-Dawgs!) and then attended North Carolina Central University (Eagle Pride!) where I earned two BA degrees in Accounting and Business Management. Since the age of 10, I dreamed of starting my own Funnel Cake Brand and after years of research and testing different batters with friends and family, the dream became a reality! I thank my Heavenly Father and my parents for believing in me! It hasn't been easy but through the support of my family and community and a lot of prayer...ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE! The FUNOHCAKES Brand has participated in many fairs, festivals, and events in North and South Carolina, and Atlanta, Georgia. FUNOHCAKES is the premier funnel cake brand of the Charlotte Motor Speedway and has partnered with Carowinds Amusement Park (full Circle...right!) concession team providing funnel cakes for all music festival. Among many, My favorite event is the Refuse to Lose and Stay in School annual event at the The Salvation Army Center of Hope. This is the event God placed in my heart in 2013 to give Kids living at the local homeless shelter hope and motivation to stay in school. I can't say this enough! With God all things are possible! It's just the beginning! Thank you for your Support! It's my pleasure to serve you!! We serve Funnel Cakes in Charlotte, NC and surrounding areas.

Later, after graduating from college, he knew he wanted to start making funnel cakes again. And thus - FunOhCakes was born.
