Patrick Muhammad took an unconventional route to baking and so far it’s led to sweet success. “ My father was a modern day janitor. My dad would take me to work to help him clean office businesses and bathrooms when I was still in kindergarten. When I think back to toys I had growing up, it was a broom, a mop or a vacuum cleaner." A downturn in the economy forced Muhammad to find work outside of his "comfort" zone. Foxnews.com reports that the recent recession has given birth to a new wave of entrepreneurs. "If you would have told me 15 years ago that I would have a full-fledged baking business, an online delivery service that specializes in southern desserts, a tricked out food truck, a full-on catering service; I would want to know what you were smoking.” Muhammad says, “No where in the cards does it say that I should be right here, right now, doing this. It just goes to show you that you what’s for you is for you." I caught up with Muhammad as he prepared for a catering job to discuss his passion, his goals and what’s next for 954sweetshop.com.
