Menchie's Frozen Yogurt to Participate in Lansing Girl Scout Cookie Bake-off
in Eastwood Towne Center
Wanting to do something more meaningful with her life, Martins set out to be an example for her kids by pursuing her dreams of opening a business and showing her daughter that women do not only belong at home.
“In Brazil, we didn’t have the Girl Scout program so this was very new to me,” Martins said. “Girls need to have good examples in their lives. I love when my daughter can see that it’s possible to do anything.”

This is the second year that Menchie’s will be participating in the Lansing Girl Scout Cookie Bake-off, where local chefs will compete in creating one-of-a-kind desserts using Girl Scout cookies. Attendees will sample and vote for their favorite treats and participate in a silent and live auction hosted by Tim Bos. Other chefs competing for top votes come from restaurants including Bake N’ Cakes, Glazed and Confused and former chef/owner of Golden Harvest, Zane Vicknair, to name a few.
“Menchie’s is all about the power of generosity,” Martins said. “We love doing fundraisers, and I strongly believe in the partnership within our community.”
Martins recalls her cakes quickly defrosting during last year’s Cookie Bake-off and says she will be better prepared this year. Her last advice for girls, as a female business owner, is to persevere and always be willing to try again.
The 2017 Lansing Girl Scout Cookie Bake-off Benefit will take place on Thursday, April 20 at 6:00 p.m. at the Greater Lansing Association of Realtors. Individual tickets are $45 each and/or $325 for a table of eight. Buy tickets today!
