The Face Behind Creative Crispies
Hi, my name is Amy. A PROUD mother, daughter, founder & owner. For those of you that do not know me, I would like to introduce myself and tell you a little bit of my "why".
I started Creative Crispies in the Summer of 2019 when I made a very important decision, it was time to chase my dream and create a business that would make me happy and at the sametime feel challenged. As I sit and reflect on the summer of 2019, I still get butterflies in my stomach. I started on this journey because I needed a new career. Since I always had a lifelong dream of being an entrepreneur and the need for a new start, I decided now was the time to chase that dream and turn it into reality. I wanted to wake up in the morning excited about what I was doing and at the same time being able to be there for my daughter as a single mom.
Growing up my mom would make rice crispie treat bears for special occasions. Everyone loved those treats. I thought “what a cool idea” and “why not bring the idea of shaped treats to the rest of the world”? So, I decided to take this idea and turn it into something bigger. After lots of trial and error, I came up with the right recipe and started with a couple of shapes. Today, we have over 300 different shapes and can print almost anything to top a treat! I’m always thinking about rice crispie treats, so much so that I even dreamt of our most innovative product, our mix clusters.
Being an entrepreneur is a lot of hard work and long days. But, I wouldn’t change it for anything! I am PROUD to show my daughter Grace and other women that anything is possible. I am passionate about teaching others to believe in themselves, have faith and have FUN!!
I sincerely thank you for supporting my dream.
