The most exciting thing about my idea, is in fact that it is unheard of. When was the last time you walked into a house - to find that there was a restaurant inside. No tables, formalities, bars; it just felt like a loved ones home. Where you could sit on the couch and enjoy food laughter and fun; all while eating. Were you could intermingle with people you have never met or known, and say “Hey may I sit here next to you”? “What brings you here? What does Soul Filled mean to you?”
This is what we are all about. Leaving our differences outside and coming together as a community, city, township ; with the promise of enjoying good food and good fellowship.
You enter as patrons and leave as family.
Of course, tis is unheard of, so a potential roadblock may be: speculation, fear, anxiety and maybe even pessimism. However, I am assured that one visit to “Aunt Tiny’s House” Restaurant - the home of “Soul Filled Catering” will make you a believer.
The entire community will benefit from such a venture. Everyone has to eat! It is unfortunate, that while growing up in Muskegon I experienced a very segregated city. All of the non African Americans - where in North Muskegon and all of the African Americans, within the Heights. I want a place where we meet in the middle - cross over our sides of the causeway and come together in love, serenity and purpose.
What I Will Do With $5,000
With the $5000, I will purchase a van for mobile vending. And also a mobile cooking classroom that will travel all around the city teaching families, church groups, children and even executives - how to cook from the heart through our mobile classes.
I would also like to put a down payment on a home, that will be converted to the restaurant - with the hopes of becoming a local landmark.
