Inspiring Conversations with Teshia Bailey-Norman of Chef Teshia Enterprise

Today we’d like to introduce you to Teshia Bailey-Norman. 

Hi Teshia, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I originally entered the food industry only preparing salads and hosting meal prep for families. When the pandemic hit, I had to adjust, so I transitioned to being a private chef! That may have been the best decision I ever made. Since making the change I’ve started a food truck, and traveled all over to prepare meals for different clients. 

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Of course, there have been many challenges! The biggest challenge I’m facing right now has been the rising food cost. I thank God I’ve been able to stay busy during this pandemic, despite how high the cost of food is. 

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I am a traveling chef that is expanding my business into a full-service event service. I set myself apart by not only having great food but ensuring that the ambiance is one of a kind. I specialize in date night services where we bring the romance to wherever you are. Soon I’ll be adding my food truck to the mix T.K.O where I can give restaurant quality menu items on wheels! That has to be the part that I’m most excited about! If I could leave readers with anything I’d tell them to never stop dreaming! All things are possible with the most high on your side! 

Can you share something surprising about yourself?
When I started my brand originally, I had lost every dollar I had to a scam. I took the last bit of cash I had to purchase food products and went dealership to dealership to sell food. I week later I had booked my first catering gig, crazy how life works!
