The Mushroom Angel, LLC
Specialty Food Artisan
Hi there! We’re The Da’Cruz Family and creators of the Cruz Burger. Cruz Burger was birthed out of a global pandemic. Just like you, we were forced to pivot. What better way to adjust than to start a family endeavor and eat healthier. So the journey began.
The English word for Cruz is the cross. Our mission is to be the point of intersection where family and healthy eating collide. Whether you’re a meat lover, vegetarian, vegan, and the likes, you can gather around the table for a Cruz Burger.
Dominique M DaCruz
Dominique believes our communities' most dire economic challenges will be solves by taking on the idea that "small is the new big". With over 10 years of experience in financial services, start-up business planning, and non-profit management, Dominique is channeling his range of experiences into the launch of The Cruz Burger™, a mushroom-based alternative meat product, and serving as a board member for an NGO focused on advancing economic opportunities of the underserved in Detroit's North End community. Before taking on social entrepreneurship full-time, Dominique built his career in Commercial Lending to small businesses. With the responsibility of sourcing and underwriting commercial term loans, lines of credit, and working capital. His transition from serving small business owners, to becoming a small business owner, is a natural pivot. He seeks to use his experience to successfully launch his brand and help other for-profits and non-profit entities leverage what might seem "small", in order to make a big impact.
