JMT Sweets & More LLC - VA

JMT Sweets & More LLC dba JMT Vegan Eats has successfully re-entered a physical location as the market becomes oversaturated with food trucks and the demand for vegan food trucks decline. JMT Vegan Eats started as a home based bakery and slowly moved into food, added vegan and gluten free options, finally transitioning to an all vegan food and sweets business due to demand and health in 2020. JMT Vegan Eats expanded their experience and begin teaching baking and life skills classes in 2019 for 7-12 year old's with the City of Chesapeake's park and rec slating them to add two more classes, one for teens, and one for adults. All of a sudden COVID hit and shut all classes, markets, and means of making sales down in addition to our then 17 year old daughters, onset of epilepsy. COVID came in and changed our lives as we knew it. JMT Vegan Eats began teaching online baking classes with the City of Norfolk during COVID. In November 2020 we tried our first location by subletting a space under another tenant. It was great until we were notified the rent would double and the landlord would not negotiate terms with us. We exited this property and took all of our equipment and transitioned into a food truck. Our food truck theme was and still is the truck you can write on. I, Ivory Morris, have a background in behavioral health and currently work in mental health. I wanted our truck to be therapeutic and provide an activity for the kids while the parents ordered. This idea was greatly frowned upon until it was not. We can currently attend an event, start with a white trailer and leave with a fully "tagged" trailer, no space left to color. We are now in our own location, opened 2/14/24, serving food and sweets. Although we have most of our equipment we are missing several very important items such as a full size double oven, ice cream freezer (oh yeah, we have another dba, JMT Sweets Kids and they make ice cream that avoids 9 allergens!), commercial waffle maker, a sign for the building, and working display refrigerators. We opened our doors with what we had, updated our menu and the way we cook our food, offer dine in dinner nights 2 days a week, and will continue to utilize our food truck both at the store and at events. We serve our community by feeding the homeless and helping those in need. We strive to provide an interactive, fun, welcoming, and engaging environment for all. At JMT Vegan Eats we do our best to feed our blended food families so no one is missed. Although we are All Vegan. All The Time.®, our customers are not. JMT Vegan Eats will continue to pivot and adjust to external changes as needed and we look forward to the future.
