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

Hi Danica, how do you think about risk?
In the Webster dictionary my picture must be next to the word Risk-taker. Being that I was pregnant at 12; I’ve already foolishly risked it all. Therefore; everything after that was fair game, I had nothing to loose, but the world to gain.

What should our readers know about your business?
My business is called The FIll Up Station restaurant in Atlanta. What sets me apart is the brand and the attention to detail in creating a full concept that goes along harmoniously. Then of course the food taste great. Now here’s the kicker I’m also huge on the cosmic karma. So I always treat people as I would want to be treated. Excellent Service if you ask me, I take pride.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
So I’m an Atlanta fan but not a native. It’s the history in the culture for me, the respect behind an individual not a bank account. (Because in Atlanta you never know who has money because everyone does whatever they want and that’s in terms of dressing up or down. So everyone is treated with respect until you show otherwise.) The night can be based on your budget; affordably cheap and free or Bougie and a Bankroll in Buckhead. The people is a wide variety and the foodie choices are plentiful but not great. Yikes, I had to tell my truth. Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would have to give that shoutout to my kids. They were always the reason why I went so hard. If I were honestly able to dig deeper it would be my grandmother. The hardest working immigrant I knew and a naturally born hustler. I get it honest.
