We had the good fortune of connecting with Clifford Prevo and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Clifford, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
My thought process and goal was to start a business that I can leave behind to my children and their children. Also doing something that I love to do so I would never have to work again.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I have been in the business development and customers service space my whole life and on thing I have learned is you must treat people the way they want to be treated. It’s not easy trying to when business or gain peoples trust but if you are likable, creditable, and the will to execute then 9 times out of 10 you can win the business and build a long lasting relationship. My brand King 79 represent those three key factors. I told the world that I have one of the best tasting vodkas on the market, it’s for a great price and my family is the inspiration behind the branding/ label. I believe that you should do what you love and have something to pass down to your legacy when you are gone. King 79 will do just that.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We will have to hit Stone Mountain for a hike and great jerk chicken at Jamaican Jerk. Then hit this little spot called Poor Calvins in the ATL for great food and top notch Cocktails. There is a spot call Forks and Flavors that is great for Taco Tues and Friday live music and food ( great people who really support the black business owners). Their is also the boardwalk and graffiti wall that’s nice for a stroll and vibe. I have family in the city so good down home cooking, spades, patio action and Frankie Beverly and Maze in the background is all we need.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My wife and kids are my biggest inspiration. Also my sister for always and I do mean always supporting me
