Exploring Life & Business with Carlos H of Mr Treats

Today we’d like to introduce you to Carlos H. 

Hi Carlos, so excited to have you on the platform. So, before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
“Whether you have chosen a plant-based lifestyle, have an alternate diet, or just want to eat healthy, YOU DESERVE to have the love and comfort of delicious desserts. At Mr. Treats, I will provide those treats for you. As a child, I watched my grandmother and mother cook and bake for their loved ones. When my grandma would start to prepare her Sweet Potato Pie, my cousin and I would stop what we were doing and rush to the kitchen to see Grandma’s magic. Whether to help with handing her ingredients or just to stare; we knew being in the kitchen, we would get first dibs on licking the bowls. Her daughter, my mom, had a banana pudding recipe that was out of this world. Everyone in the house would sit down, pop their top pants button and all you could hear was, “Mmm mmm mmmm”. Sharing these moments with my family brought about happy memories that as I have grown older, I realize are irreplaceable and priceless. The love received from my family sustained me as I served my country in the Marine Corps. While in the Marines, I expanded on the lessons from my family and learned the principles for baking for large groups. After being honorably discharged from the Marine Corps, I began to bake for family events, sharing the love and comfort l learned from my grandma and Mom by request. Aunts, cousins, and family friends would request pineapple upside-down cakes, cupcakes. apple and sweet potato pies for graduations, holidays, and “just because” events. After discovering veganism and much reflection, my wife and I decided to start a plant-based lifestyle with our family. I couldn’t accept that I had to give up the love held in those recipes because I chose a plant-based lifestyle. As I went to events and festivals both vegan and non-vegan, I was disappointed to realize that there was a lack of vegan treats available. I began to personally research converting old-fashioned family recipes to delicious plant-based alternatives. EVERYONE DESERVES A SWEET! Mr. Treats will make desserts for you!” 

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Navigating the path of business ownership. 

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I decided to start this business because I saw a need for those with different diets to be able to indulge in delicious desserts, just like everyone else. Our ingredients are fresh! If you see a fruit in the flavor, that fruit is in the batter. This makes for a great-tasting and most natural dessert that you will enjoy. 

We provide 100% vegan desserts to our community. We have additional options that do not include gluten, soy, traditional sugar, or nuts. 

All of our desserts are vegan, but all of our customers are not. We welcome every taste bud. Everyone deserves a sweet! 

Who else deserves credit in your story?
My business partner, who is also my wife. She has been my greatest cheerleader and advocate.
