YORKTOWN — Najeonna Iman, the owner of One Girl Desserts, will be celebrating the grand reopening of her storefront on Feb. 17.
The grand opening and ribbon cutting will be held on Feb. 17 at 1 p.m. at her new location off George Washington Memorial Highway.
Iman and her family had moved to Yorktown for a new start, and shortly after, she was selling her goods at area farmers markets. She opened her first storefront in Yorktown in 2020, but was forced to close her doors, in part, due to the pandemic.
After some personal struggles, Iman, with the support of her family, began working toward reviving the business. In October, she partnered with Riverwalk Landing to help prepare for the eventual reopening, as well as attending Yorktown Market Days.
Once the storefront reopens, Iman hopes it will enable her to eventually open a nonprofit for children.
“That’s really my main focus. To get the business off the ground and get people to know who I am, and then I want to open a nonprofit called One Girl Cares, which would be an extension to my bakery,” Iman said. “And it would be a nonprofit for the community as a youth center.”
