We had the good fortune of connecting with Maria and Mirna Hinojosa, Elizabeth Delgado and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Elizabeth, Maria, Mirna, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
We wanted to start a business we’re we can spend time together as a family as we are sisters and sister in laws. Decided to start a new year with a new hobby . Our thought process was about being able to be creative and learning new techniques to improve and grow more without expectations. We set our minds to it and knew from the beginning that it wasn’t going be easy. What started off as just something we were doing only for one day for Valentines Day 2 Years ago lead us to where we are now.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
We enhance strawberries. We are very excited about how far we’ve came and for what’s yet to come.. We work as a team and are always open for new ideas. We encourage each other and put all of our ideas into consideration. We have learned about the business as we go. We went through many trials of errors, burned batched. As well as sweaty strawberries. Currently now knowing what works best with what. Learning to be patient pulled off.. Our customers always complement us on having a delicious chocolate and fresh strawberries. Lessons learned was to trust the process, and to not be afraid to start something new.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
We would definitely take a week off ! Id plan little random brunch to Jupiters for waffles and wings.
Go to Galleria or Memorial Mall to do some shopping.
Go to Discovery Green to get fresh air riding bikes.
We would take pictures in downtown.
Take a trip to Dave and Busters for some margaritas and play games for fun.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Family and close friends who have supported us to the fullest since the beginning.
