New Orleans is quickly becoming entrepreneur’s row: with a rapid increase in the establishment of Small Businesses since 2011. But over the past five years, Tiara Expose affectionately known as The Machine Lady has taken a unique approach to her business of concessions and events.
The Machine Lady Concessions is a leisure company that entertains the entire family by way of exciting outdoor games and signature bites. Although the funnel cakes, fried Oreos, and gummi bears are fan favorites, it’s the popcorn varieties that are the most popular.
Everybody, (young and old) loves popcorn. Rather a sweet or savory option, my customers have shown so much love. Their feedback and suggestions have even led to a few additions to my menu. I recently added candy-coated flavors and I find myself selling out often!
Expose’s popularity across NOLA has earned her a place among Community Leaders, Pro Athletes and Political Figures. Now she has her heart set on expanding into licensed product, and a store front. In the meantime, you can find her this summer with some of the who’s-who of the crescent city: creating smiles for everyone.
