A Prince Avenue Christian School (PACS) student is watching her “dough” rise after starting her own baking business.
For a little over a year Delaney Cook, a junior at PACS, decided to venture into the entrepreneurship realm and start selling her delicious bake goods when she received some positive feedback.
The idea for the business venture came after she gave away some of her delicious treats that she baked at home.
“My friends told me I needed to start selling them,” Cook said in a press release by PACS Marketing Assistant Amy Frierson.
Even though she feels her surname might not reflect the exact path she is taking, the high school junior might as well have been born with a wooden spoon in her hand.
According to an article in the Oconee Enterprise, Cook pitches and sells her baked goods at birthday parties, bridal luncheons and office parties.
“I like to meet all of my customers myself to give it a more personal touch,” Cook said. “I also created my website and social media pages. I do not have any employees, but sometimes my parents will help me if I have a lot to do.”
Like many other businesses, Cook launched a website, delaneysdelights.com, where potential customers will find menu items such as her homemade cookies, cupcakes and pies and place an online order.
On top managing of her flourishing business the young savvy entrepreneur assists her mother’s business, Activekidz, which helps children with their physical therapy needs.
“[My daughter] is learning about supply and demand at an early age, and that can only help her in life,” said Kendall Cook. “We are so proud.”
At her school, the junior is a member of the varsity girls’ golf team, a school mentor and a member of the Beta Club, National Honors Society and Interact clubs.
