Watch how it all began.
Meet Janel Prator the CPO (Chief Pudding Officer) at The Puddery. In 2006 while working for the phone company Janel often took her home cooked goods to work to impress her coworkers. One day she decided to take banana pudding as a special treat and to her surprise the response was overwhelming! She knew she had something big on her hands. Being the self-proclaimed born-preneur (entrepreneur at birth) she decided to turn this creamy goodness into a business and The Puddery (formerly Nana Queens) was born.
She revolutionized a classic southern dessert giving it a twist using some of the finest ingredients and an assortment of unique fruits and cookies.
The Puddery’s banana pudding has many devoted customers and landed on reality shows like, “The Great Food Truck Race” on Food Network in 2010 and “Mind Your Business with Mahisha Dillenger” on OWNTV in 2018.
Today, the Puddery's banana pudding can be found in several partner restaurants, atered at special events and delivered locally to your door.
Future expansion plans include multiple Puddery trucks and even a brick and mortar.
Janel recently resigned from her job as a Senior Technical Manager for the phone company and is a self-taught baker. Her mission is to spread pudding goodness in a cup around the globe.
