Meet Debrionna Reese

Today we’d like to introduce you to Debrionna Reese.

Hi Debrionna, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
Ever since a young child, I have always had a passion for cooking.

It started out watching my mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother cook for family gatherings and celebrations. However, just watching wasn’t enough and I couldn’t wait to become older and taller so I could physically cook.

Once I was able to cook on my own, I never stopped cooking and I have only gotten better. Now that I am older, I am able to host brunch and dinners for my mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and other members of my family.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
The road has not been smooth, however, the support of my mother and family definitely lightens the blow.

A few struggles I face include: Consistently promoting my business, having on-demand products available, and doubting my potential.

To add, with the proper guidance, finances, and support the road is gradually getting smoother.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am a caterer, who specializes in desserts. I am known for my different flavors of cheesecakes and cookies.

I am most proud of the progress I made from when first started out until now. In the beginning, I started with homemade cheesecakes and today I have over 15 additions to my current menu.

I believe my versatility sets me apart from others, I offer a variety of options from appetizers, desserts, vegan options, low sugar options, and even specialized desserts (cake, cake pops, etc.)

  • Cookies – $10/dozen
