Q&A with Genesis Maple, Owner, Consultant, and Designer
Tell us about your business.
[I developed] Gen's Sweets & Treats three years ago, creating and designing stunning custom candy and dessert buffets for a number of events.
What makes your business stand out?
Custom candy and dessert buffets are not common. In the competitive world of event planning, I wanted to be able to offer my clients something more than the average event planner. After the first few displays, I began to get requests for only the candy buffets, and Gen's Sweets & Treats was born.
What inspired you to start or run this business?
Event planning and design [has been my] passion for many years. After working events full time for two solid years, I missed corporate America, but did not want to let my clients and vendors down. I still work events, but on a smaller, less-frequent scale now. Gen's Sweets & Treats is something I can always offer my clients, and there are not a lot of vendors that offer this service. It has become my primary focus in the industry.
What is your most popular offering?
The top three packages are: Short and Sweet, Sweet and Low, and Caprigo's Sweetest Special.
What’s your favorite part about your job?
The looks on clients' (and their guests') faces when they actually lay eyes on the buffet for the first time. To see their vision and my talent and passion come together always impresses them and makes me happy!
