Today we’d like to introduce you to Tabari Davis.
Hi Tabari, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
We started out on the eastern shore of Maryland doing meal plans for friends and family. As demand began to grow, we decided to grow with it. We’ve expanded from solely meal prep to catered events as well as menu planning for restaurants just starting out, or looking for a change in cuisine. We also just finished a residency at the Sandlot Baltimore this summer.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
With most small businesses starting, we’ve run into a few obstacles. From finding kitchen space to funding, to working a full-time job while simultaneously growing the business. Before moving from the shore, we would travel back and forth from our kitchen space in Severna Park to our home on the eastern shore after working our full-time jobs and prepping for our business.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
We provide weekly chef-inspired meals for delivery. We are known for restaurant-quality meals brought to the comfort of your home. We are most proud of the care we take in the food we provide. What sets us apart is we provide a wide variety of cuisine from around the world.
Are there any important lessons you’ve learned that you can share with us?
The most important lesson we’ve learned is time management. Starting a small business is very time-consuming. Understanding that the rest of the world doesn’t slow down while you’re working toward a goal and using the time you have to accomplish said goals while juggling everyday life is a task in and of itself. Managing this time is key to being successful.
