We had the good fortune of connecting with Sindy Posso and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Sindy, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I opened Cielito so that I could share our passion for healthy, creative and tasty sweets with our community. I’ve been in a kitchen since I was a little girl, watching, asking, eating the left overs, but I never was part of it. I grew up watching my grandmother make ice cream and I definitely wanted to start something but I did not know how. I have a background in architecture and interior design so I did not have any idea on how to come up with a business plan. But on the other hand, I was absolutely certain that I could make amazing ice cream and create a space that would be the perfect backdrop to combine my passion for design, art and great food. So after some thorough investigation on how to make ice cream pops in a commercial scale; so far I had only made ice cream at home; I started looking for a space and once I found it I went all in. This was my first serious job in a kitchen and now I understand why everything has to be perfect, why you have to start all over a recipe that already was finished. And guess that my obsession with every little detail paid off. Probably it is easy when you really love what you do. To be fair, till this date, I have not been able to come up with a business plan, which seems to be key to success. But in my opinion, if you are really confident on what you do and you put all your effort and passion on it, everything else will fall into place. I was also very careful on managing costs, we had a very limited budget so we did almost everything from management, design, construction, etc. on our own. At the end of the day making your business succeed, grow and be profitable will simply be the result of your confidence and the effort you put on what you do.
