Q&A with Rita Ng, owner of Made in MA
How long have you owned Made in MA?
Made in MA was founded in April of 2017. We sell items that are made in Massachusetts because we want to support local businesses. Three products are actually made in our commercial kitchen.
You operate Boston BonBon out of the shop. What are some of your most popular French macaron flavors?
Funfetti, red velvet cake, Nutella chocolate, mango lassi, lemon custard, raspberry rose and Vietnamese iced coffee.
What inspired you to start your macaron business?
I was on a backpacking trip to Europe when I was inspired to bring these delicious French delicacies to Boston. I love food and I love colorful things. Macarons are like a blank canvas that allow me to play with creative flavors.
What advice do you have for aspiring entrepreneurs?
You’ve got to love what you do because hours are long when you first start a business. Don’t be afraid to ask for help (from your friends or anybody you know), because you never know where it can lead you.
