Rising Stars: Meet Mishonda Mitchell

Today we’d like to introduce you to Mishonda Mitchell.

Hi Mishonda, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I’ve always had an interest in cooking. My passion for food and cooking began at a young age. It started with me helping my mom; then grew as I learned different techniques. I remember being very interested in watching cooking shows. That interest led to some friendly cooking competition between my brothers and myself. After high school, I tried to figure out what I would truly enjoy to have as a career. Everything pointed to the food industry. I did a business plan as a college assignment and that’s when I really dawned on me. From that point, I got serious about it. My friends would often encourage me to take the steps needed to launch my business, but I was hesitant. Last year, a two great friends of mine gave me a pep talk and I took the steps needed to launch my business. It was the best advice anyone could give and I really needed the push that they have given to me. I’m truly happy and look forward to watching MJ’s Cravings grow.

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?
It hasn’t been a smooth road. Being a mother, in addition to having a full-time job, definitely made starting a business a bit rocky.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I provide high-quality food at a very affordable price. I specialize in cooking for special occasions. Although I specialize in southern comfort food, I make sure it is healthy; that’s what I’m most proud of. The thing that sets me apart from others is my ability to adapt. The dishes I prepare can be modified to work with any diet/dietary needs. Also, my food is always fresh and make to order.
