Success Story Madre Churros & Cacao

Madre Churros & Cacao

Madre Churros & Cacao sell quality cacao bars, nibs, and cacao powder, we have paired it with deliciously hot vegan churro bites. Since launching I’ve sold churros at Ocean Beach Farmers Market, Old Town Día de los Muertos, North Park Thursday Market, and La Pulga Flea Market.

"Before working with Cally I felt a bit uneasy with my choice of becoming a small business owner. I was also unsure if I had all of my permits in order.  Since then, I have gained more confidence and feel as I am consistently moving forward in my business. Cally has helps me stay organized and holds me accountable. My favorite part with working with Cally has been the guidance and support. I feel as though I not only gained a lifelong mentor but a friend as well." Janeé Gutierrez
