Chef Eboni Bowman is the founder of Flavor Atlanta, and she turned her lifelong love of cooking into a successful Georgia-based small business offering personal chef services, meal prep, cooking classes, and catering. Both of Eboni’s grandmothers did a lot of cooking and baking, and one was a professional caterer. Eboni started helping them in the kitchen when she was five. She studied at the Art Institute of Atlanta’s culinary school and has more than 20 years of experience in the Culinary and Hospitality industries.

In this episode, I talk to Chef Eboni Bowman about how she scaled her solo business into a full-service catering service. We discuss how she grew her business, utilized outsourcing, focused on what she is best at, and kept overhead (and debt) low as she built her business.
“Just having those people in place that can do those things and let them do what they’re good at, and letting me do what I can do and what I’m good at, it makes it so much more peaceful and better for me.” – Eboni Bowman
