Naples 12-year-old launches successful baking business amid pandemic
Mia Pardo has turned a new hobby she picked up during the start of the COVID pandemic into an opportunity.
Last year, the Naples 12-year-old launched Mia Bella Sweets from her home kitchen. She offers baked goods ranging from cakes and cookies to pies.
“It just took off,” Mia said of her business. She now has dozens of customers and has had hundreds of dollars in sales since the launch.
Prior to the pandemic, Mia had never baked anything on her own. She got inspired to start while watching tutorials on YouTube.
“A lot of people got sick of being stuck at home, but it worked out in her case,” Mia’s dad, Roger, said.
