Owner: Panthia Goode
Restaurant Launch: Aug. 21, 2010
Tell me briefly about your business.
Goode Eats is a restaurant that specializes in down-home cooking like fish fried in corn meal, peach cobbler with extra crust, homemade burgers and hand-cut French fries.
What training or experiences prepared you to launch your business?
The recipes that are used at Goode Eats were handed down from generation to generation, so I’ve had over 20 plus years of first-hand experience in the kitchen with my mother, grandmothers, aunts and neighbors.
What factors did you consider in selecting this location?
I chose my location because I was familiar with the community. I knew that it was very family-oriented and that there would be a lot of welcoming faces. The fact that there was no competition in the area was just an added bonus.
What do you envision for Goode Eats in the next five years?
Within five years, I hope to have established myself as one of the leading soul food restaurants in the South East Community and branch out with several chains of Goode Eats in other areas of Houston. –courtney thomas
