About Candy Ramirez
Candy Ramirez was a young girl when her “Nana Lupe” taught her to bake. She spent hours memorizing family cake recipes and learned to bake with pure ingredients and love. Candy aspired to run a bakery one day, but lacked formal business training and direction to make ends meet.
In 2014, she attended an event that was part of “The Adelante Movement” and The Coca-Cola Company’s 5by20 initiative, where she received business training and inspiration from other successful female entrepreneurs. Today, Candy, now 28, is a hardworking Latina business owner, social media maven and mentor who owns and runs Candy’s Cakes & More, a bakery in Tucson, Arizona.
