Can you tell us a little bit about your background?

GRACE: Through my sister, I got a job working in a catering kitchen, which is where I realized how much I love working with food. Following this, I was employed as a cashier at a bakery counter which led to a job in their kitchen, eventually doing all the baking. After 1-1/2 years there I felt I wanted to do things in a different way, a way people hadn’t seen before. I quit the job, and over the course of 2 jobless months, put together ideas for my new company, “HONEYBUTTER”.

How working with Paintbox Catering & Bistro did help you in your career & personal goals?

GRACE: I don’t know what I’d do without Paintbox. Being there has led to the creation of my brand new company, allowed me to expand my client base and get my name out there. Paintbox offers a support system that really helps me. It would be hard to do what I’ve done on my own. Paintbox has my back.

Where are you now?   What's next for you?

GRACE: My goal is to have my own shop with my name on the door. I’m taking steps toward this.
