Today we’d like to introduce you to Ericka Taylor.
Hi Ericka, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Erickatized started off as a Cosmetologist signature! And it turned into many things. Erickatized is a one-stop shop for all your beauty and accessory, catering needs!! I’m a third-generation Cosmetologist that has way more to offer than just hair.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
I started Erickatized right before COVID hit, with this crazy dream of being the pop-up Queen! Due to the shutdown and me just having a baby, I was only able to two pop-ups and had to shut it down because I took the shut down seriously!
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
To be Erickatized is to be hypnotized into a state of elegance!! We offer quality name brand handbags, Mink Lashes and over 13 years of hair care! I mean who doesn’t want high quality without the ridiculous prices? Now on the food side of things, I have been cooking my entire life and have been told “you got something with your food” so after going back forth with myself and God! Erickatized catering came to life! In June of this year, I was blessed with my first event and was asked to make my famous fried chicken!! Like my pastor says if you know than you know!! I can make some chicken out of this world with a crunch that you can’t resist!! And let’s just say I hit the ground running this time around! When it comes to my food… I like to call myself your food Genie and it’s as you wish!
In terms of your work and the industry, what are some of the changes you are expecting to see over the next five to ten years?
My prayer is that Erickatized will be name that’s people hear from LA the Florida!! Or that someone will fall in love with my food and take my food before some leaders or celebrities!
