Melina Delkic makes “sweet” deal with Global Foods

Rachel Scott

Melina Delkic (12) designed her own business cards to promote the sell of her goods at Global Foods.

Melina Delkic (12) has jump started her future baking career by officially establishing her own company called “Melina’s Cakes” and selling her goods at a local St. Louis store.

On Sat. Feb. 23, Delkic offered samples of four of her desserts, Sopapilla Cheesecake, Baklava, Bajadera, and Vanille Kipferl, that she will be selling through Global Foods Market in Kirkwood. Delkic has already started her own limited liability company (LLC) at age 17.

“I am really thankful for the opportunity to reach out to a larger market and interact with people who are shopping and get them to try the samples of my cakes,” Delkic said. “It’s fun to see their reactions.”

Delkic specializes in multicultural desserts, which is what she will be selling on the shelves at Global Foods after she offers samples and sells in person to familiarize the customers with her products.

“Next Saturday [morning], I’ll be at Global Foods in Kirkwood from 10:30 a.m. to about 2 p.m. giving samples and selling desserts,” Delkic said. “In a few weeks, they’ll just be on the shelves at Global Foods.”

Anyone can sample or purchase Delkic’s goods at Global Foods Market on Kirkwood Rd. or check out her business’s official Facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/MelinasCakes?fref=ts
