Tell us about yourself and your business:
We are Ronnie and Tina Granger of Sunday’s Kitchen scratch made creole. We are passionate about cooking and serving the city and people of Amarillo, and guests of this town. We love and are proud to be serving this iconic Texas town, and hopefully treat you like family in the process.
What made you become an entrepreneur?
I wanted to do food, that I wanted to do, the way I wanted to do it. I’ve worked for a lot of great companies that taught me a lot, and learned a lot, but I wanted to do the food that inspired me to cook, and there was only one route to that, entrepreneurship.
Was there a specific aha moment that catapulted your career into entrepreneurship?
In 2013 I worked for a local retirement community, and although the pay was good, the benefits were alright, I knew I couldn’t have freedom to do the things I wanted to do in life, travel, eat fine foods, provide for my family above what I was currently doing, that I needed to do more. So, I started cooking my own menu, and selling “plates” wherever I could locally, the rest, was a hard, long, slow grind, but, our history.
What do you find special about the entrepreneur community in Amarillo?
When we were having a rough start, MANY local restaurants reached out to help me find my feet, Benjamins Donuts, Six Car, the Lazy Gator, all offered to help it was one of the most humbling moments of my life, I can say it’s a community for sure.
What’s a celebration you want to share with the community about your business that has happened in 2020?
We want to Celebrate our new downtown location on historical route 66 112 s.w. 6th and our being a part of Amarillo as a new business!
