Raleigh’s Economic Growth Shines Thanks To Black Businesses

Let’s pack up and move to Raleigh!

Business in North Carolina is finally bouncing back after taking a hit during the COVID-19 pandemic, and that’s in large part due to the growth of Black-owned businesses in Raleigh.  

Owner Chef Morgan Teianne and her three partners opened their second location in the heart of the home of Shaw University, a local HBCU. Their packed menu includes Southern cuisine favorites, including salmon croquettes, fried green tomatoes, and catfish & grits. Starting in Jacksonville, North Carolina, Teianne said she didn’t realize how much larger the new location was until she got inside. “It was very big for us, and we didn’t realize until after we signed our lease how big it was,” Chef Teianne said.

“I really admire how many people enjoy the food.”

Starting her culinary journey in Washington, D.C., the chef pays homage to her father and late grandmother, who inspired her to perfect the craft of Southern cuisine. She left the nation’s capital behind to bring her talents to the Tar Heel state. Making the capital city her home, she encourages other Black business owners to join her. Teianne said her company caters to all demographics and thinks others can be just as successful. “I love to support other Black businesses,” she said.
