The entrepreneurial spirit comes naturally to her — Davis started styling hair in middle school and launched a business called Exquisite Styles — and she’s been teaching her five children about the importance of having a vision and building a brand.
“I’m teaching them to be little entrepreneurs, just like mama,” Davis says in an interview with AL.com. “I’m really hands-on, and I never wanted to work for anybody else.”
She founded Exquisite Sweets N Treatz in 2015, and followed that with the dining business four years later. Weekly menus and available sweets are posted on social media; customers place orders that way and pick up their food on a specific day.
Davis says her customer base has grown significantly — so much so, it would be easy to get overwhelmed — and she’ll probably require more space for cooking and storing ingredients in the future.
Saving up for a food truck is on her to-do list, Davis says, and she hopes to expand her reach to other cities in Alabama. A party-planning business is on her agenda, as well.
A professional rap career is her most recent pursuit — Davis released her first single in summer 2021 — and she’s been writing poems and short stories since her teen years. Putting emotions on paper is her strong suit, Davis says, and that translates to lyrics and rhymes with a powerful flow.
