What began as a hustle has become empowered by a sense of responsibility to uplift the community while keeping individuals satisfied with their drink of choice?

“My eyes have been opened as I see that we as a minority community struggle badly, having to ‘find a way’. I want the brand to create job opportunities and entrepreneurial opportunities for business minded individuals who may come on as franchise owners.” – Kenya

Understanding the importance of legacy, Kenya seeks to add to her portfolio through other capitalistic ventures which can serve as leverage for her passion of philanthropy and social service.

“As crazy as it may sound, I want to rebuild Black Wall Street; except this time it will extend further as a two block radius, but around the world.” – Kenya

Motivated, reliable, organized, and consistent are attributes that have been bestowed upon Kenya.  Having stood out from other beverage oriented street vendors, Kenya has established herself as a respectable business woman with more to conquer.

An example for women globally, Kenya is a survivor of an abusive relationship who used her ambition as an escape route and foundation for her success to date.   Adding to the brands menu by the day, she has become a house hold name and sets her sights on ascending up the social and business ladder becoming one of the leading tastemakers in the industry today.
