A loan helped us hire employees, advertise, build an inventory, and buy well needed equipment.

Kris's story

I have always believed that food is the staple of every family. It brings us together around the same table. Being in the kitchen with my grandma, aunt and mother are what inspired me to cook. Especially after I have seen the effect the food they cook had on the people eating the food. I have been in the food service industry for 20 years. I have gone to and graduated from culinary school, I have opened restaurants, I have managed restaurants, bars, and hotels over the past 10 years. I have also been catering my own events for 7 years now. I have three kids that I co-parent 17, 12, and 11 years old. I hope to inspire them to accomplish all their goals and be the best people that they can be. I feel like most restaurants rush the guests in and out and don't care about the guests' actual experience. I feel as a caterer that I can get more personal with the consumer and give them the exact experience they want, and I can grow an actual relationship with the consumer as well. My catering menu is a mix of recipes my family enjoyed when I was growing up, and comfort foods from different nationalities around the world, my goal with this is to give consumers the happiness I experienced with my family as a child and to bring all different nationalities together under one roof to celebrate each other's similarities and differences.
