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

Hi Derius, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
I think some risk are definitely necessary in order to grow or elevate to the next level. Risk taking has pushed me to purse my goals and dreams and be more confident in my self and my abilities.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
My business is called Simply Great Food. I cater different events, I’m a private chef and I offer meal prep. I’m dedicated, determined and dependable. Every time I get an opportunity to cook for others is exciting because I get to share my love of food with them. I am proud of myself for taking a step out on faith to start a business that I can run with my two sons. I am where I am today because I stayed focus and stuck to my plan. No matter how tired or stressful I pushed through. I have learned to stay focus. If you want something you have to block out all distractions.

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.
I would definitely go to the Stardome. I’m a comedian so that’s like home. I would go to Big Dave’s in Atlanta. The Philly Egg Rolls are definitely a hit! I would suggest that my friend stay at the Georgian Hotel. It’s in a great location and the hotel itself and the staff are amazing.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to dedicate my shoutout to My grandmother for instilling morals and ethics into me. She was always in my corner.
