I used my personal savings. CN: What’s your unique selling point? Our recipes and method of operations are creative. CN: How would you rate the customer satisfaction level? Our customers love our openness and realness. We are a growing brand, so we try to admit our mistakes. CN: What’s the most challenging part of being an entrepreneur, for you? Sleepless nights. There is always something to do. A task to complete. CN: What role does the internet play in growing your business? A big role. We sell online.
