Cultivate Small Business


Teresa Thompson Maynard


Sweet Teez Bakery, a dream turned Ideal that blossomed into a delicious cupcake. Started by a local mom in the Dorchester area. Teresa Maynard grew up in Dorchester’s Codman Square area where she is now raising her children. Growing up with various food allergies, and now raising kids with allergies, she realized a simple peanut can make the search for a good cupcake near impossible. After purchasing countless baked goods and worrying about the ingredients, she set out to provide customers with high-quality baked goods made to meet their nut free needs and delight their taste buds.

Sweet Teez Bakery is a family owned business. Sweet Teez Bakery specializes in custom baked goods with unique flavors & creative designs. Our products are made from scratch using quality nut free ingredients. Sweet Teez bakery launched its business delivering in the Boston area in late 2016 at the CommonWealth Kitchen. The CommonWealth Kitchen’s incubator allows the business to establish a following and gain capital before moving into a retail location in her Dorchester neighborhood. Teresa wants to open a retail location in the near future once she has raised the capital. She wants Sweet Teez Bakery to be really adorable and scenic and big on atmosphere, a destination place in Dorchester.

The bakery has been making traction in the Boston area. Sweet Teez Bakery sold out at the 2017 Boston Wine Expo. Sweet Teez Bakery participated in the 2017 New England Dessert Showcase and won Best Chocolate dessert for our Dark chocolate cupcake with semisweet chocolate ganache. We broke into the Wedding scene this summer doing a few weddings in the area. This past summer we hit a major revenue milestone. Some of Sweet Teez Bakery corporate clients include Capital One and Babson College. Sweet Teez Bakery is currently working on expanding their business into the wholesale marketplace where they can sell their bake goods to cafes and restaurants. While scaling a new business has its challenges, Teresa is excited about the future of this growing business.

Sweet Teez worth every bite…
