On starting A ’La Mode, Angelique says, "At the time, box services were big. And we saw that, at the time, there were only those services for men—and very high end, like high-priced. We always had the idea of doing something, but starting your own business is very expensive, and we were just working in the bar and restaurant industry at the time. So we just started originally just in our kitchen Downtown. We turned our kitchen and living room area into a business space and then outgrew the space that we were in."
