America" with more "Rise & shine" in beautiful Utah. This segment is sponsored by expedia and shows us that not only does the state have natural beauty, it also has a lot of heart. "Good housekeeping's" Lori bergamotto is there to help "Gma" bring us the story of a business owner who spent her own hard times focused on helping others. Welcome to park city, Utah. In the winter it's a skier's paradise. But during the warmer months this beautiful resort town attracts bikers, hikers and anyone who loves the great outdoors. Its vibrant main street is lined with historic buildings built in the 19th century. Back when this area was a booming silver mining town. It's also home to the sundance film festival. The largest film festival in the country which draws more than 100,000 people. But head west over the wasatch mountains and you'll find Utah's capital, Salt Lake City. And a quaint and delicious pastry shop. Brownie, brownie, brownies, we do brownies and blondies and brownie ice cream. Anything you can think of we'll do. This is my favorite, thick brownie with cookie dough on top and a chocolate drizzle. So good. Reporter: Molly Kohrman is the owner and like so many small business owners she says the pandemic hit her hard. Everything shut down. All the orders got canceled. Our sales dropped about 70% in that first month and it's slowly been getting better. During the pandemic I just saw there's so many people struggling with so many different things. And I just felt like there's got to be more that I can do. Reporter: So she started organizing pop-up events in her parking lot. Spotlighting and raising money for causes close to her heart. Black owned businesses, lgbtq youth groups, refugees and this week, women owned businesses. Molly, this is amazing. So this whole event is to show our community what kind of cool businesses women own in our area. She kind of got us through the beginning stages of the pandemic. What does Molly mean to this community? If we're talking about allies she is like the definition of what an ally is. She's an example for young girls that are coming up that you can do, you can be whatever you want to be in this world. If you're able to lift people around you, everybody is just going to do a lot better. I really think that a little kindness can make a big difference in the world. And that is what I want my business to do. Reporter: For turning her love of baking into love for her community, "Gma's" sponsor expedia wants to honor this small business own weather a sweet surprise she just won't believe.
