Who Is Hot Toddy?
Hot Toddy was named after founder Sydney Hann's grandmother, Tod Francis. Sydney grew up inspired by stories of her grandmother's glamorous life as a model, writer, weather girl and appearances on the Jack Parr show. She never liked mass-produced clothing or the business models of large corporate retail outlets and went to great lengths to find unique styles outside of what was immediately available to her. Since its opening in September 2006, Hot Toddy has brought unique fashion and first-class customer service to their downtown Olympia clientele. The shop is currently owned and operated by Sydney and Erika Lari (pictured at left), and is a fully lady-owned and operated experience.
