About the Founder
Hello! My name is Donna, the founder of Donna’s Delicious Delights LLC, and I would like to give you a little background on how it came about.
I grew up in an Italian family from South Philly. My love for baking began with my family, when I was a child. Baking was always done for the holidays and all the celebrations in between. I would always help my Mom (Antoinette), my Grandmom Bella, and my Zizi Bibie(“Aunt” in Italian) make different Italian cookies and sweet treats from our Italian traditions. Years went on, and I attended culinary school in Philadelphia.
After going to school, I had the opportunity to work side by side with my husband’s father and my father-in-law John and my mother in law Maryann who owned and operated a little café in New Jersey. I always wanted to have a little café from when I was a child, I used to pretend I had a restaurant using the telephone as my cash register. How ironic is that? My husband and his family owned a café.
Working with my father in-law was a learning experience. He taught me all the ins and outs of owning a business. We were lucky enough to have my in-laws lead us down the path of owning a business. The opening of Donna’s Delicious Delights will be a great success with the help, support and love of my Husband (Anthony), my test taster’s (Anthony Jr. and Vinny) and the encouragement from my family and friends.
Donna’s Delicious Delights always gives cookies with a kiss.
