How We Became the Country’s Dessert Experts! It all began with a small batch of delightfully creamy cheesecakes in a one-room L.A. bakery; Steven Fabos had discovered his neighborhood’s appetite for sophisticated sweets. Growing demand for his fresh, gourmet desserts led to a decade-long scaling venture in Colorado and North Carolina, where his creations inspired a national following. The final touch in the success recipe arrived from Venezuela in the form of Charles Kosmont — whose agricultural prowess and passion for the world’s finest, freshest ingredients created the perfect pairing. Together, they pioneered dessert sophistication to make the Steven Charles brand synonymous with gourmet dessert expertise. There’s a reason Steven Charles – A Dessert Company supplies desserts for some of the largest restaurant concepts in the country — they innovate gourmet creations while operating a supply chain that supports big business. Proud of their minority supplier status and convinced that diversity enables superior service, Steven Charles has chosen women to hold three of four chief officer roles.
