Name: Trella Griffin

Location: Greenwood, SC 

Type of Business:
Casual dine

What does your business do?
When I am launched, I will cater to my community on healthy eating (vegan menu items) however,I also accommodate those that aren't quite there yet. There is also in place on Wednesday's when I close early that single mothers can come get free Pampers and wipes for their babies from 6-7 PM.

When and why did you start the biz?
June 2018 I purchased still haven't opened currently May 21st 2019 I plan to have everything complete 2nd week if June

Where's your office?
I rent a space in the uptown area of Greenwood South Carolina

What's the toughest part of running your biz?
Making that sure I succeed and be a positive influence to those that think "I CANNOT DO THIS." Look at me and think yes I can Trella did and she helped others along the way. While living her dream.

What's the most fun part?
Watching people be excited for me. Employees asking me for employment in a great working environment.

Anything you would have done differently?
I would have checked all equipment before purchasing.

What's next on the horizon for your biz?
Opening my doors is currently the only horizon I see at the moment. Seeing all the people I have served as a waitress for 20 years see me own my own place and still gives the absolute best dining experience possible.

What advice do you have for others?
Dont tell anyone your vision until it's clear to you and completely done and ready.

How do you use Idea Cafe to help your biz?
Knowing that I possibly have a group of people that can share my vision, help me along the way and watch nothing truly turn to something!

School (where, still in school, degree)?
Greenwood High School

Prior jobs or business?
Applebees Asst Manager 11years. Trainer for ocharleys six years. Trainer for Cracker Barrel 3yrs.

Favorite Food?
Hot wings

What are your pets' names?

Do any of these pets help with your biz?
Not at this time

Is there any one person or event in your life that led you to go into business for yourself?
Just watching how the restaurant industry is ran now where the employees feel no value so they return no rewards. I always ran my team in excellence that every employee and customer counted. So, for that I have acquired amazing respect in our community on value to service and people.

Anyone you publicly want to thank?
Applebees for giving me the training to know I can do this.
