Meet Briana McPhearson of @karissweetshoppe in Bellflower

Today we’d like to introduce you to Briana McPhearson.

Briana, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I was inspired when my daughter Kari turned one year old. I had a very limited budget and wanted to do a nice treat table for her birthday party. So I did my research and made her a few treats for her treat table. It was an immediate success and I started doing tables for friends and family. Then I started making an Instagram and a Facebook page and my business took off from there.

Has it been a smooth road?
In the beginning, I have so much energy for my business. I would literally spend hours and hours creating things. After a while to be honest, I started to lose my momentum. I realize that I was taking on so much and not really giving myself any breaks or any time off. So now, I am just trying to do a perfect balance of making treats but also having self-care for myself.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
I am a self-taught baker. I specialize in gourmet treats for any theme or occasion. I love making rice crispy treats, chocolate covered pretzel rods, cake pops, and chocolate strawberries just to name a few.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
As far as my city Bellflower California being a good place for a business like mine, I am unsure. Sometimes I am swamped and overwhelmed with orders and then sometimes I won’t have an order for a couple of weeks. It is really about word-of-mouth and how you are marketing yourself. I would definitely encourage that you were always creating new content for your page.
