Our Story

As the founder of A Poundcakery, my journey began with a deep-seated passion for baking and a profound commitment to empowering disadvantaged youth. Inspired by a treasured family recipe passed down through generations, I embarked on a culinary exploration, infusing unique flavors into our artisanal pound cakes. But my path took a transformative turn when, after 14 years in education, I felt a calling to effect greater change beyond the classroom walls.

Driven by a desire to merge my love for baking with my dedication to youth development, I founded A Poundcakery with a bold vision: to create a social entrepreneurship model that would not only satisfy taste buds but also fuel opportunities for underserved youth. Our mission is clear—to provide them with the skills, support, and resources they need to thrive in today's world.

Through our career development program, we provide hands-on training, mentorship, and financial literacy education to young individuals, helping them build essential skills for success. Each purchase of our pound cakes directly contributes to funding these programs, allowing us to make a real difference in the lives of those we serve.

With every purchase from A Poundcakery, customers become part of our story, contributing to our mission of empowerment. Whether it's indulging in our delicious pound cakes or joining us in our commitment to social impact, each bite represents a step towards a brighter future for our youth. And now, as we embark on the journey to open our own brick-and-mortar location, we're not just building a bakery; we're creating a haven for empowerment, where every purchase supports our vision of nurturing young talents and fostering lasting change in our community.
