Deborah Tuggle owns Bite Me Cookies, a Black woman-owned cookie bakery. Tuggle had no intention of owning a bakery. She wanted to get a college education and find a job that would help her support herself and her young son. To help make ends meet while she went to class, Deborah began selling cookies. After graduating, she worked in the corporate world before indulging her entrepreneurial spirit and opening a bakery.
