How SCORE helped. 

After retiring as an educator, Judith Smith Parrott turned her love of baking into a business...Judith’s Dessert Boutique.

Judith made the decision to start her business the smart way by enrolling in the Princeton SCORE five-part  StartSMART™ workshop series. After taking that first step, Judith never looked back.  She and her mentor worked together to complete a "finance ready" business plan and Judith launched her business in late 2012. Since then, Judith's Dessert Boutique was also selected as one of the small businesses to receive $1,000 from the Sam’s Club Giving Program, in addition to attending a 2-day entrepreneurial program for all finalists hosted by SCORE in 2013.

“Working with SCORE has provided a foundation to help my business grow,” said Judith Smith Parrott, owner of Judith’s Dessert Boutique. “The access to tools for my business from Sam’s Club and the additional training will really help me take my business to the next level.”
