How this small business has managed to succeed despite the Covid-19 epidemic.
Covid-19 has been an interesting time for us all. We as a whole are experiencing never-before-seen issues. Being particularly hard on the restaurant industry as a result. Businesses open for more than a decade have been forced to figure out new strategies or face closing abruptly due to these unforeseen circumstances. Alfreda’s Soul Food, which is located in Houston, Texas, has been able to not only stay afloat but excel in their local area. Marguerite and Troy, co-owners of Alfreda’s plan to change soul food’s bad reputation. Vegetables being cooked separately from meat dishes to offer vegan and vegetarian options for those with specific dietary needs.
Alfreda’s is proudly black-owned and takes pride in its role in the culture. Just outside the restaurant is a “history of heritage and hope” mural with many prominent black figures such as Martin Luther King, Duke Ellington, Barbra Jordan, and J.R. Richards, who has been known to stop by. Another presence worth noting who often frequented was George Floyd.
