It’s no secret that cupcakes are delicious.
And they’re even better when they come with a good cause.
Mary Iusso owns Cristina’s Tortina Shop at Main and Vodden in Brampton, and we had the chance to sit down and chat with her one-on-one about her entrepreneurial journey.
Her nine-year-old daughter Cristina has been a huge inspiration for the business, where Iusso hires people with Exceptionalities – like Down Syndrome, Autism, and other special needs – to be a part of her team.
- Popular Brampton shawarma joint closes two locations
- Get delicious, ready-to-eat meals straight to your door from Square One’s Food District
- Eggs recalled in Ontario over possible salmonella contamination
The shop recently moved from its location at Hurontario and Ray Lawson to one that’s closer to the downtown core, new cupcakes are in the works, and Iusso has a truly inspirational story to share!
