The Problem in the Current Market

Although everyone loves ice cream there is a lack of options with clean ingredients for those with food allergies, specialty dietary needs, and alternative dietary choices without having to sacrifice flavor.

The Stephens Difference

Stephens Southern Delights is a brand that provides premium ice cream and gourmet frozen dairy desserts that come in an array of traditional southern dessert flavors.  These flavors are decadent and they uniquely address the concerns of those with specialty dietary needs because of the choice to include clean ingredients in our products, without all of the extra additives/fillers that may trigger food allergies. Who said you have to sacrifice taste and health... you can have both!

How the Funding Will Be Spent

We seek funding that allows us to scale up in size and mass produce our products so they can be sold at your local grocery stores, specialty food stores, and gourmet delicatessens.  For example, to qualify for Whole Foods, we need to produce our ice cream with the same great taste on a significantly larger scale at a factory.  Once we have the samples from the factory, we will send them to all of the major retailers and grocery stores.  We already have considerable interest from several well-known grocery stores.  Marketing our brand is of utmost importance.  We desire to strategically debut our brand to gain traction to compete and blossom in national and international markets.  

$30,000 - Manufacturing samples in a factory of the first 6 flavors to debut in stores 

$10,000 - Marketing efforts (website, part-time social media employee)

$5,000 - 2021's Legal Account Funding 

Our Team

Our team consists of: me, Bupé Mulenga, Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Jamar A Morris - Vice President of Media, and a number of other support staff and contractors.

Thank You

We sincerely thank you for your investment in helping us build our authentic and unique brand. We welcome you to come along on this journey of spreading sensational ice cream with a taste of health-conscious nostalgia. Your support is unbelievable, and we appreciate you tremendously!
