Black Women in Seafood: The Restaurant Owners

A new generation of Black women in seafood is finding entrepreneurship opportunities as restaurant owners, including as caterers and food truck owners. Some operate mom and pop restaurants while others own casual and fine-dining establishments. Owning and operating a successful restaurant is hard enough but owning one that is as specialized and seasonal as a seafood restaurant involves having trustworthy connections to consistently offer quality food to customers. Here are a few women who’ve done quite well as seafood business owners, including food truck owners, and women who co-own their establishments with husbands, partners and children. This list is by no means exhaustive.
