- Transparency: We believe that transparency is the cornerstone to building trust with our clients and with our team. We gladly share recipes and ingredients and we have even shared our actual costs vs. our suggested retail price when negotiating prices with clients.
- Quality: Fresh, local food purchased from local farms and vendors is what we strive for when we are purchasing our ingredients. We cook from scratch and use wholesome ingredients to prepare our food.
- Interdependence: We know without a doubt that while we are separate, independent individuals and business entities, we are all connected and need each other. If we hope to solve the many problems that we face in today’s world or rise to meet the even greater opportunities that greet us every day, we must work to collaborate in a trusting and synergistic way
Our Connection to Racial equality & justice
Sweeties caters for North Carolina Organizing Against Racism racial equity workshops sponsored by the Racial Equity Institute (REI). We believe that we are making the world a better place to live, through community and institutional organizing using the REI analysis. With Sweeties, we get to cook good healthy food, service our local community , build our local economy, be intentional about creating collective economics for people of all walks of life, and feed people and institutions who are actively engaged in anti-racist work. We feel incredulous and grateful for this opportunity every day.
As a small, minority owned business, we often don’t have the same purchasing power and economy of scales that larger businesses have which impacts our pricing. We also believe in respectful, living wages for our team members. We pay all of our employees and independent contractors a livable wage. We have learned from our clients that our pricing is competitive and fair for the level of service and the quality and type of food that we serve.
