Life & Work with Yolonda Wilder

Today we’d like to introduce you to Yolonda Wilder.

Hi Yolonda, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
EvetteSavoriz started with a late-night treat request from my sons to make Churro Bars. Continuing with different creations such as cheesecake became a new inspiration.

Having a passion for food and people, I kept hearing people say, “you should start a business.” With that, I began to pray and my creative juices began to flow as baking became my focus.

The light that shines on my customers’ faces once they’ve had a treat, makes them say; “you have to get some of EvetteSavoriz treats & drinks!”

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Becoming my own boss hasn’t been an easy journey. Some of the struggles have been work-life balance with family and continuing to find ways to reach new customers. Also with their are challenges with unexpected changes with supplies. However, the interaction with so many new people from all parts of the world; just strengthens my passion to continue and strive for more.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I am a creative woman who specializes in mini cheesecakes and drinks. My drinks are what I am known for. Strawberry Tea isn’t something that most people have heard of; however I am known as the ” Tea Lady”! With that, strawberry lemonade has also become a favorite.

Some of my specialties include Apple Pie Cheesecake, Lemon Cheesecake, Banana Pudding Cheesecake, Brownie Cheesecake and Churro Bars. These are not flavors that you can find in many places.

I am mostly proud to be in business from just a thought and a night of fun! My cheesecakes have brought so much joy to so many and that warms my heart each day. People follow my social media to locate me at various events.

My unique flavors and originality set me apart from others.

Do you have any advice for those just starting out?
One of the biggest misconceptions is promoting. Knowing multiple ways of promoting your product is such an important step that many owners overlook.
