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

Hi Tyre, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I just felt like if I ever spent the time and money to go to culinary school then it would only be to build a dream of my own which is to have a bar, restaurant,lounge or even a food truck that pepple can come to.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m a graduate of La Cordon bleu. Which I’m very proud of. All tho this doesn’t set me a part from othe chefs.. One of the biggest things that I was tought to you theres is you are your own advertisement, customer service and things of that nature. So the things that you practice as a individual is how people will see and your business. So I take lots of pride in my work. Things like cumunacation, respect and arriving on time and putting out a good product.

I’ve put in a lot of work over the past few years and have learned alot. I’ve gain a little recognition threw social media and word of mouth. I it hasn’t been easy. Same things are trail by fire. Like think you can do it all yourself. Shopping, writing recipes and menus, costing recipes, invoices all these things time time. So using your time wisely is always key when run or starting your own business. Leaning how to hire help and not put so much on yourself is something I would stress to any business owner. Covid 19 was a big challenge for use all, but was big on the food/catering word. No large gather slowed business down tremendously, I just glad to have made it through that.

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?
I love Atlanta and are lots of great things to do here. Sports are my go to thing. Weather its Hawk, Braves, Falcon, The Dream or Atlanta United. I support them all. The World of Coke is one of my favorite places in the City along with The Georgia Aquarium. Which are both across from Centennial Park which is surrounded by great restaurants. Its very easy to spend a whole day in that area. The Spot in Decatur is also a place I enjoy. Great food, music and people. Every is there from comedy, karaoke and live music night. You also have to see yhe city’s belt line. Its awesome when the sun is setting. Atlanta is just an awesome city.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Mainly my mother for giving me the push and courage to go to culinary school. Put just my family and friends in general. There’s been nothing but love and support from them. So if I had to dedicate my shoutout to it would be to everyone who supported me.
