Chaz Daughtry is the owner of SoulFitGrill — a low-sodium spice company based in Houston. He started the company in 2014 so that his grandmother, who has diabetes, would have healthy alternatives with less sodium. Today, they have more than eight different spices. From Caribbean to Cajun flavors, all of the available options are healthy, low in sodium, low in sugar, and with no preservatives or MSG. He is also the owner of Sweetwater Farms in Houston.

Rolling out spoke with Daughtry about growing his businesses.

Please tell us about Sweetwater Farms.

We expanded with Sweetwater Farms, our organic urban garden that sits on six acres of land in Houston. We use that garden to actually grow our veggies for our spices. We also use a garden to teach inner-city youth how to actually [learn] about agriculture. We supply local restaurants in the Houston area and the community in Houston as well. We grow anything from collard greens to kale, tomatoes, jalapeños, and other veggies as well.

They can find me in any Whole Foods [Market] in the Houston area. They can find us in some H-E-B’s in the Houston area as well.
