Rakiyta’s Sweets and Treats
Starting a business can be a daunting task, but it was a goal of Rakiyta’s and one that she accomplished. “Rakiyta’s Sweets and Treats,” a vending machine business, was recently launched in the Kalamazoo area after a good deal of research and hard work. Working with her supports coordinator, an employment training specialist, and Michigan Rehabilitation Services, Rakiyta composed a business plan and applied for a business license.
She currently owns one vending machine and has plans to expand her business after she learns the ins and outs of the local market. Rakiyta loves running her own business and seeing that all her hard work has paid off.
