The reason behind St. Catherine's Frozen Dessertz
There is a challenge finding local desserts and treats that are uniquely inspired by Trinidad and Tobago's diverse culture at an affordable price. It is the only business of its kind in Trinidad and Tobago that offers a combination of products for all tastebuds and backgrounds.
I market to anyone who has a sweet tooth craving. Children, adults, healthy lifestyles, guilty pleasures, while remaining cost-conscious.
Having my business registered, launching the product line, building customers, customers requesting the products to be at shops and supermarkets
I've found it a challenge working with businesses to purchase our product at wholesale to retail at their existing establishments. As a new brand on the market, we're not really recognized and businesses are not ready to take the chance to retail our products yet.
Stop procrastinating, start now, and trust the process.
