Edibles Rex was founded two decades ago when Tammy Tedesco purchased a 700-square-foot yogurt shop and turned it into a deli. Using personal capital, she grew the deli into a catering business, serving major corporations, social events, and charter schools in and around Detroit. Local schools now account for the majority of the company’s revenues, as Edibles Rex provides meals to children on free and subsidized meal plans.
