Today we’d like to introduce you to Stephe Rodriguez.
Stephe, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
The idea of It’s Dipped began while I was out of town visiting family and taking time to reset after being furloughed (eventually laid off) due to the pandemic. As I was on social, I saw that a friend was gifted chocolate covered strawberries and the idea to start my sweets business sparked! I began doing research, watching videos, and practicing (it is much harder than I thought). I never really baked any sweets before so this was really new to me. Once I began getting the hang of it, it honestly became something I really enjoyed doing and I officially launched on Instagram. I launched in October and the Halloween theme sweets were a hit. I am really excited and grateful with the overwhelming support and orders I have received. With the holidays around, it is only going to get more exciting to work on these themes & future orders!
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?
Nothing worth having comes easy right? It takes a lot of practice and so much patience. I handle everything on my own, so I have to make sure I give myself enough time to dip, decorate, and package all orders. But the long hours are all worth it once the orders are picked up/delivered and I see the joy and excitement of my clients!
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about It’s Dipped?
It’s Dipped specializes on chocolate covered sweets – strawberries, pretzel rods, Oreos, and pretty much anything that can be Dipped in chocolate! We personalize any order with themes, colors, and special celebrations. It is so much fun to work on orders and special requests. I enjoy coming with ideas for my clients but truly enjoy being challenged with the ideas they come up with. Our most popular item is our dipped strawberries with liquor! The strawberries are dipped in any color, with a pipette filled with their desired liquor, tequila is always a favorite!
What do you like and dislike about the city?
I love that our city is so colorful and filled with so much diversity!
