SMILE Biscotti is an entrepreneurial bakery business founded by Matt Resnik, following his graduation from high school in 2013. SMILE stands for Supporting My Independent Living Enterprise, and was created to help Matt and others like him, who are impacted by autism, make advancements in life skills development, social connections and pathways toward greater independence.
In 2016, SMILE welcomed Jon as a licensee and SMILE Biscotti DFW was created. To date, Matt, Jon and their coworkers have sold over 200,000 SMILE's. You can find them at several locations throughout the Phoenix and Dallas metro areas and across the U.S. Licensing opportunities are also being pursued in other markets.
SMILE started as a community effort, thanks to the support of the Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center (SARRC) and its Rising Entrepreneurs program. Now, Matt, Jon and many others like them are being afforded the opportunity to succeed.
IS CHANGING LIVES.
