This Juneteenth, we honor enslaved African Americans’ resilience, resourcefulness, and legacy by celebrating their freedom and immeasurable contributions to our nation.

As a dining company, we can’t help but shine a light specifically on the flavors that reflect the triumph of freedom and equality. Born out of this hardship, enslaved African Americans have transformed our nation’s culinary landscape by skillfully combining inventive cooking techniques and seasonings to turn what was once considered undesirable food scraps into cuisine that endures. The results were delicious and comforting recipes that have become treasured parts of the American table.
