The Women’s Business Center at Cornerstone Alliance was key in seeing this husband and wife team’s shared dream to fruition. Jayme will tell us how she and Abel got started, some of the challenges, and the potential they see for the future in downtown Benton Harbor.

Their offering of fresh, healthy, local ingredients full of big flavor coupled with excellent customer service proves a winning combination.
