Here at the Greater Memphis Chamber we love to celebrate business growth and development! There's nothing like standing beside you as you open the doors to your new business or reveal your new expansion. That's why we offer our members our expertise and assistance with hosting grand opening and expansion ceremonies. Thank you to our Ribbon Cuttings sponsor, Paragon Bank for helping us support local businesses like you. Today, we are happy to be celebrating the grand opening of Milk Dessert Bar, the newest place to get a sweet treat in East Memphis!
What does your business do?
We provide homemade, made from scratch sweet treats. We take all recipes, old and new, and add a modern twist. We have everything from simple pound cakes to colossal, extravagant milkshakes. If you can imagine it, we can probably make it.
What makes you stand out?
All of our desserts, excluding ice cream, are made daily, in-house from scratch. However, we’re not just selling desserts. We’re providing our customers with a cozy, homey atmosphere where they can relax and connect with each other.
What was your motivation for opening Milk Dessert Bar?
Having lived in Memphis most of my life, I have supported many local businesses around the community, and I wanted to give the people of Memphis the opportunity to experience the type of dessert bars cities like Los Angeles and New York have to offer.
What are some of your favorite local businesses?
There are too many to list, but a few of my favorites are: One & Only, Hog & Hominy, Brother Juniper’s, Gibson’s Donuts, Southern Social, Folks Folly and Muddy’s Bakery.
What’s the best thing about owning your own company?
There are so many rewarding experiences about owning a business, but if I had to pick the best thing, it would be working with my son and daughter-in-law.
