This is when I thought of Destiny Paulk! I reached out to Destiny and she immediately agreed to the interview! So, we met up this past week and I sat down at her business Destiny's Delights and we talked for a moment. Now I bet your wondering, "Who is Destiny Paulk?" Well, let me introduce her:
24 year old Destiny Paulk is the owner of Destiny's Delights located on the South side of Douglas, Georgia. Her walk up shop is located in The Paulk's Plaza, owned and operated by her Dad who currently serves as the Mayor (just a cool fact). She started her business in July of 2018. As I sat and talked with her she told me that she decided to open the business on the South side of town so that the community on that side could have affordable treats.
When she's not working at her business, she enjoys being home and spending time with her family. Currently she's in the middle of returning back to college! I'm always asking people who or what inspired them to go into business. I've heard people say they inspired their self, I've heard some say they didn't have any inspiration. Destiny jumped and said "My dad! It would be my dad!" She admires her Dad and his work in the community.
As a boss lady she has made some mistakes and had several accomplishments. She told me that her biggest accomplishment was starting her business back in July. She regrets not starting it earlier because it has brought so much joy to the children in the neighborhood and tasty affordable treats to the community!
MY PERSONAL EXPEREINCE
Her menu is up on display and the color of the menu posted on her store front brings a lot of attention! That was the first thing I noticed when I walked up. I loved the set up and how she was so warm welcoming! I ordered three snow cones, it didn't take her long to fix them so the wait time was about three-four minutes! (This was my first time ever having a snow cone, that's sad lol) but I tried three flavors and when I tell you I loved them! Their not to sweet, they're just right! Of course my daughter had a blast with them by making a mess, she was so amazed by how it made her lips turn blue!
Destiny even fixed one of her popular treats for me to see and photograph, her Ice Cream Brownie! It looked to good, due to it being so hot outside it started melting and that made me crave it even more. Over all my experience at Destiny's Delights was great! She welcomed me with opened arms and a warm smile, the wait time wasn't long at all and they were affordable (and baby I'm cheap)!
If your ever in Douglas, Georgia you have to go check her out! The great thing about her walk up shop is that there is a large sitting area, so If you just wanted to bring a large group of friends and just chill and eat snow cones you could!
Destiny's Delights is located at 913 B Gaskin Ave, Douglas, Georgia 31533
