Grandma's Cheesecake Sandwiches is busy getting our first retail store ready.

I just want to share with you a little. I spent the day weeding and planting flowers out back behind our new retail location, so it looks pretty for our opening. Which is still a good 6-10 weeks away. Lots to do. The biggest part is getting all the equipment in place and setting up the kitchen. It's fun and exciting and rewarding to see it come to life a little more each day. Just wish my grandmother, Raphaella was around to see what's become of her recipe. Soon we'll also be in some well known stores and supermarkets. I can't wait. And the best part of my job now is all the taste testing I get to do on...

A Grandma's Cheesecake Sandwiches Update

Well, as you all know we did not get selected for the FedEx Small Business Grant Contest...voting obviously was a big part of their process, and being such a new business where we're still trying to get the word out landed us shy of what we needed to get over the first hurtle, but cheers to the top 100 businesses that made it through the first round. We will try again next year when we are more recognizable. So much has been happening, which is great when you are launching a start-up. There are a lot of things to do on a daily basis, and one of those things we recently did was display at a Food Show hosted by...

As a woman working in mostly male dominated industries over the years, I have suffered through workplace sexual harassment multiple times. I did try time and time again to move past it by changing jobs frequently, but it was this last time when I endured something far worse than before that I realized I’d had enough, and wasn’t going to put up with it anymore. Working for or with abusers is never a comfortable position to be in, so I started focusing my attention on creating a business that I would not only enjoy, but would keep me safe,...

Empowering Women at Brooklyn Boulders

Yesterday, I had the utmost pleasure of being included on a special panel that was hosted by Nicole Touzien, the General Manager; and, Lexy Amaral the Event Coordinator at Brooklyn Boulders in Long Island City. #IAMWOMAN was a one-day festival highlighting the strength and power of those who identify as women through various workshops. There were vendor tables, which gave female entrepreneurs, like myself, the opportunity to not only spread the word about their products, but to share, and engage their stories with others on similar quests. The day was filled with fun, encouragement, and support. I even hosted a table with free samples throughout the afternoon. Giving visitors, members, and other vendors a chance to enjoy a sweet treat...
