Nia: Hey Guys! We’re here today with Dionne from Stuph’d beignets and Burgers
Can you tell me a little bit about yourself and your family business?

Dionne: So, um my mom is the owner, it’s pretty much run by her, me, and my grandmother, it’s all of us. We have our cousin in the back, who’s been here from the beginning, um it’s pretty much everyone we’ve been knowing for a long time whether it’s been from me being 3 years old or if I’ve been knowing them since before we opened the restaurant. Pretty much every one we’ve been knowing in our family is back there.

Nia: Can you tell me a little bit about the background, when was it established, who thought of the idea!

Dionne: Ok, so we decided to go to uh, California one day and visit schools. I decided to go to Santa Monica pier. I got funnel cake with strawberries, as yall know powdered sugar, whipped cream. My mom was like “girl that ain’t nothing but a beignet with stuff on top” and she decided to come back home and she played with it, with biscuits and I was like eh this would be good if it wasn’t with biscuits, like ...you know. Then she worked on the formula for it and got a better dough system. we did testing with the family, amazing, chef kiss like everyone loved it, and then once she got that she hit the ground running.

Nia: That’s Nice

Nia: Do you see your business expanding to other cities? You know, you have the Philly cheesesteak so maybe Philly?

Dionne: Listen, Listen, fosho, fosho Yall we will be everywhere, every city, every state, every country… maybe not every country but you know we’re going to be everywhere. Period.

Nia: Period.

Dionne: Listen, this is the manifestation right here, you heard it. it's gonna happen!

Nia: Which filling do most customers come to get?

Dionne: our best seller is the Creole Queen, that’s crawfish, crab meat, and shrimp.

Nia: mmm sounds good

Dionne: Bon appetit, ok listen it’s good

Nia: So If you could choose one filling for the rest of your life what would it be? no cheating, no choosing five, six, seven, not breakfast, not lunch, not dinner, just one.

Dionne: Ummm … it’s a toss-up between Cheesecake and Creole Queen. Ima go with Creole queen because that’s like, I’m not a big sweets person, so I can't like do cheesecake every single day. But that Creole Queen I can do like every single day, so Creole Queen fosho.

Nia: Okay lastly, if you could choose any filling you guys do not have currently, what would it be?

Dionne: Peach Cobbler, or praline candy beignets That would be...yes. I’ve been trying to get my mom to do the praline candy for a while now so.

Nia: That sounds good.

Dionne: Hopefully soon yall

Nia: The peach cobbler sounds good. You know add a little bit of brown sugar to it.

Nia: Thanks for watching Guys make sure to stop by to see Dionne at Stuph’d beignets and Burgers.
