The Sweet Smell Of Success, Sugar Apple Baking Company Is Going Big By Starting Small Here In Northwest Arkansas

About the Show:

In this podcast episode, we sit down with two ladies who got bit by the entrepreneurial bug during the pandemic and joined forces to offer one of the newest boutiques, Bakeries in Northwest Arkansas.  Blanca Maldonado and Chef Danielle Reynolds are the creatives behind Sugar Apple Baking Company.  

Sugar Apple Baking Company offers a unique blend of West Indian and Traditional baked goods.  They brought samples to us during the recording of this episode, and we have to admit that we were hooked after the first bite.  

These ladies have an amazing story of how they got to Northwest Arkansas and why they are doubling down with the bakery and have big plans to expand as they continue to build a loyal following of folks that love their baked goods.  

If you have ever thought about starting a business or tried and failed in the past. This episode should provide a source of encouragement and excitement for what these ladies are doing even before opening up a Bricks and Mortar shop.  

Trust us. You will want to sample their delights after hearing this episode. 

All this and so much more are on this episode of the I am Northwest Arkansas podcast.
