Food Entrepreneur — Young and Extraordinary: DeAnna Mayo
Ekos-Squared highlights small, local business enterprises, that are not only profitable, but that provide jobs and needed goods and services for the community.
Here is a great example: DeAnna Mayo runs a business that provides healthy gourmet cookies. I ran into DeAnna Mayo’s mother in the Cheltenham, Post Office. I wasn’t able to get a sample cookie, but I did get a great story right here in Prince George’s County, Maryland
DeAnna Mayo’s company is My Sweet Tooth LLC., of Cheltenham, DeAnna says that she founded the business ” to meet the desires of children who not only have restrictive dietary needs, but those who are facing diabetes, obesity, or simply want a healthier option when choosing desserts at school or in the local area.”
How did DeAnna Mayo get started? You can read about it on her scrumptious website: My Sweet Tooth, LLC. You can order stuff on line.
Here are the ingredients of one of her the most popular cookies:
Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
We would like to invite DeAnna to sell her cookies at next summer’s farm and food market Our Local Bounty located in nearby Croom, Maryland. With stuff like this she’s likely to do quite well and so are we Local Bounty regulars.
