Today we’d like to introduce you to Jazzmin Reynolds and Skylar Ford.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Jazzmin and Skylar. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Buy The Dozen Sweet Shop was started in Houston on November 22, 2017 by Jazzmin Reynolds and Skylar Ford. We started the business because of our love of baking and we quickly escalated our brand from there. In the beginning, we started by giving away products of cookies, cupcakes, and brownies to family, friends and co-workers. We wanted to get our name out there and spread the word about our amazing sweet treats. Then, we went on to attend a variety of markets to gain more exposure throughout the Houston community. Now we are going to a variety of markets throughout the Houston and Atlanta area and catering different events. We are also gaining clientele from different cities across states and gradually growing our business through every order we fulfill. In the future we hope to become a top competitor in the bakery industry. As of now, we hope to grow and expand our business and help people gain even more exposure to our wonderful and tasty creations!
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The road to creating our business and brand has not always been easy. We had to first gain momentum and start creating new desserts. Then, we had to market ourselves to people around the community. Reaching out to others and getting our name out to the public has been the biggest obstacle thus far. As we continue to grow, we want to challenge ourselves to try new flavors with out-of-the-box concepts for our customers.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
Our favorite childhood memory is baking with our grandparents. Spending that quality time with our grandparents gave us a chance to find the joy that baking has brought to us. Having the chance to measure ingredients, wearing aprons, and smelling the treats after they came out of the oven. Baking takes skills and patience that we were honored to learn from them. These same skills have been used to grow not only our businesses but ourselves as bakers.
