My Story

After 15 years in the mortgage banking industry, I am taking the leap of faith and pursuing my dream of owning Jermaine's Cafe. Cooking isn't just an activity or about preparing food for me. Cooking is an art form, an expression, and an experience. When you taste anything that I cook, you're getting to know me a little better as a person. My dream of becoming a restaurant owner was inspired by my parents. The smell of savory meat on the grill, while riding my bike and watching my father master the grill or standing behind the counter watching my mother cooking in the kitchen, seems just like yesterday. I can remember hearing my father saying that they should have opened up a restaurant, now I'm going to make that dream come true. Starting a business is hard work and takes a lot of perseverance. As I have started this journey I have encountered financial hardship and have lost my car in the process. I woke up one morning with the idea of asking people if they had an old car around that they weren't using. Next thing you know, I found this website. My mother always said, "You have not because you ask not". I would be so grateful to receive a donated car and the donator will never have to pay for a meal once I open Jermaine's Cafe. Thank you for time and consideration.
