How We Got Started

Wezesha Dada Center (WDC) is a nonprofit organization working to empower women and girls to become successful entrepreneurs, facilitate investments in our communities, and close wealth disparities for those who have faced systemic disadvantages. In 2023, WDC students recognized that the summer months bring hot weather and the winter months bring cold weather; But, no matter the season, people love to have their thirst quenched with refreshing seasonal drinks.

The Sugary Stop is a social enterprise LLC developed, run and led by students of WDC’s Empowering Girls Through Entrepreneurship course to provide hands-on entrepreneurial experience and allow students to receive income for their business or future school work, all while providing the residents of Colorado’s Denver Metro Area with unique, high quality, refreshing seasonal beverages.


Mission & Vision

What We’re Doing

Our mission is to empower women and girls in Colorado to achieve business and financial success by offering hands-on entrepreneurial experience and leadership development opportunities while providing high quality seasonal beverages, snacks and accessories to the residents of the Denver Metro area.

The Sugary Stop’s vision is two-fold. We envision a bright future in the Denver Metro area with cheerful, smiling, happy people whose joy comes in part from receiving the unique, high quality, refreshing beverages and snacks of the Sugary Stop. From our community investment perspective, we also envision the Sugary Stop as an incubator for successful entrepreneurs.
