Sam’s Delicious Treats est. 2020The story of Samantha Nicole Davids
My name is Samantha Nicole Davids director of Sam’s Delicious Treats. Who would’ve known that there would be Sam’s Delicious Treats or I will be a director or owner of a company, sometimes I must pinch myself to see if I’m not dreaming….
Summary of how I eventually become an entrepreneur.
I was working for “ Eetmark” where I met Susan Bosman who was my manager . Eetmark was a sort of a place where you can buy take away lunches and dinners and that came to an end after 1 year and Susan came to me with a proposal that I must come and work for her where she started supplying rusk biscuit. I took her offer as I just lost my job and income and like I always believe and what is one of my philosophies “Be grateful with what you receive because the Lord has many ways to test you “. So she started to train me on how to make rusk biscuit and not for long as business was expanding we hired a place on a farm.
In 2017 I met Marie and I continue with the baking her with the rusk, muffins, rice crispies etc… I learnt a lot from Marie for the 3 years until the pandemic ruined everything where we lost our jobs
In June 2020(lockdown level 3) I received a call from Marie where she ask me if I’m interested to supply Kashifa (Hazz Stellenbosch) with sandwiches where I was caught off guard and she motivate me to do so and she want an answer the night. I approach my husband and inform him about the call from Marie where he first ask questions and want my commitment before he agrees and from there he stood by my side and believe in me. Marie offered to sell her ovens and equipment to me and from there onwards we supply Hazz Stellenbosch & Newlands. Our first mission we accomplish in July where the company was registered with the name “Sam’s Delicious Treats “.
From only sandwiches Kashifa encourage me to also do mini cakes, muffins & wraps and so we supply. At first Kashifa always told me or keep me on the toes with how the mini cakes icing looks and she wants it or the muffin must be little bit bigger than this but hey this how I learnt to keep my clients happy “a happy client is a happy supplier “because if she didn’t inform me about what she expect how would I have known. So from we start making Quiches, rice crispies, chocolate brownies and stated with Cakes
So as up on today we expand so much that we supply for 3 more companies as well excluding Stellenbosch- & Newlands Hazz. We also have done several parties, confirmation celebrations during the year and we do not only supply or satisfied humans we also had to bake a birthday cake for a dog who celebrates her 10th birthday in October.
So Susan Bosman and Marie played a major part in my career by believing in me and I’m grateful for what they had seen in me I salute them. Thank you
