Jones Scones were created because J. Jones grew tired of scones that tasted like compressed sand. After living in London, England and Edinburgh, Scotland, he returned to the United States with a longing for scones that no one could seem to satisfy. Out of sheer desperation, he created the scones he desired. He made them, above all, MOIST, and more cakey than flaky, with cranberries, blueberries, or chocolate nestled inside a mouthwateringly attractive crust.
Jones Scones started as a company after the scones were a hit with J.’s friends and coffee shops in Denver, Colorado. The plan was, and remains, to spread the word about scones to the uninitiated and scone-scarred (those who have suffered through a dry lump of baked dough masquerading as a scone).
Still something was missing.
J. explains it like this….
"My wonderful friend, my Food Angel, Amy Muzyka-McGuire told me many moons ago, that a company had to be about something more than just money or a product. It took a few years, but the purpose for Jones Scones finally became clear…
We are here to Spread the Love! Spread it in as many ways as possible, to as many people as possible. Pure and Simple."
In 2012, J. was diagnosed with Colon Cancer which actually provided a gift of clarity as to what matters most to him. "While I am on my way to a full recovery, Jones Scones remains at the core of my being. When you enjoy Jones Scones, you’re getting a piece of my dream and my heart."
