Epsy's Sweet Shop was founded because we wanted a more homemade and inclusive experience that went beyond the cookie-cutter store-bought products found in many stores. Therefore, we decided to take matters in our own hands.
Acknowledging the beauty of diversity that surrounds us, we were inspired to recreate these experiences through a boutique-style bakery with a somewhat cheeky stationary and kitchen accessories online store .
What makes us most distinguished is our blended approach to celebrate the overlaps found in each other. We emphasize the energy of belonging from of a diverse community as inspiration in all our delights.
With a receptive audience craving for more brownies she made for school bake sales, friends and family gatherings, Briana decided to create Epsy's Sweet Shop. However, she wanted to honor Epsy, her grandmother, in the process. Therefore, she has taken inspirations from her Guyanese roots, which include the use of quality ingredients, doing good in the world, and a passion for an inclusive community, as main ingredients for Epsy's Sweet Shop.
Growing up in Guyana with her grandmother, Epsy, Briana was given first-hand experience on how to use fresh, organic ingredients to create excessively delicious sweet and savory treats. She also experienced a wide-range of crafting and sewing talents being put to good use in support of the local community. These lasting impressions have been her inspiration for creating a company where each treat designed uses the high quality products with an infusion of love and care for others.
