I am a wife to a wonderful man and a mother of five who finds great satisfaction in cooking for those I love. I have taken on the challenge of traditional recipes since the tender age of 14. As my experience grew, I found that standing in front of the stove, over the sink and taking it to a cutting board were all good therapy sessions, lol!!
Later in life, I was asked to put together dishes for special events, fund raisers, family fun and friendly gatherings and the responses to my delicious meals were and are still very gratifying. And how was the name LindaLicious established, you ask? Well, I have my husband to thank for this and it became my special nickname.
In early 2019, I began working for a corporation that involved interacting with small business owners and entrepreneurs. And I must say that such folks seemed a lot happier and definitely a lot more friendlier. I soon realized that their positive demeanor and huge smiles stem from having the luxury of controlling their own time clocks as well as maintaining a work/family life balance and financial freedom. It did not take long for me to come to the conclusion that with my essential cooking experience alongside my good quality customer service skills that I, too, could become my own boss and run my own shop successfully. So I began doing some research and through a good friend, I was connected to a wonderful contact who assisted me with establishing my own business by obtaining my LLC, my Trademark and ALL required licensing and certifications......and now here I am.
I also realize that if you are someone who is gifted at satisfying hungry taste-buds with hearty meals, have a deep passion to spend quality time in the kitchen and can offer good customer service and food safety, you will find yourself in business for a very long time.....this I know. My dishes consist of traditional soul food and we have created heart healthy meals and vegan dishes that may vary from week to week. As we all know, the food industry can be labor intense no matter how big or how small. For this reason, we have expanded our food service hours and days of operations and we intend to continue to build as our family business grows.
Through God's grace, continued support from my wonderful family and customers, my continued experience and exposure and through networking, I am confident that I will reach life's goals that I have set out for my family and me as I continue on with this exciting entrepreneur journey.
UPDATE: AS OF WEDNESDAY, 9/1/2021, WE WILL BE EXPANDING TO OUR NEW LOCATION AT 3300 FAIRMOUNT AVENUE, PHILADELPHIA, PA 19104.
