Rosanelly's story

I'm a proud single mother who has 3 beautiful girls, one of them a direct business partner after training to become a Chef. I grew up in the Dominican Republic and migrated to the United States when I was almost 9 years old, not knowing how to speak the language, which made it difficult to fit in. Although I had to two children by the age of 17, it didn't stop me from going to school and desire a better future for both me and my daughters. If you ask my guests, patrons, and community about me, they would describe ,me as hardworking, persistent and very positive! I feel that this is a correct description. I am blessed and feel accomplished, as two of my children are in college while the other is planning to go after finishing high school. This took lots of effort and sleepless nights. I might not be financially where I want to be but will continue thriving to be a role model a good human being, and hope that by maintaining and growing my business I will keep being able to support my family. I think people can be born with an entrepreneurial spirit, or as a 'hustler' as its described in New York City. I have always done whatever I could in a honest way to make an extra dollar! My dream and goal is to see Bronx Bites expand and succeed, with the intention of it becoming a franchise.
