We are moving Soul Food to the forefront of worldly cuisines. Keeping with tradition but raising the bar without sparing all the love! Not looking for the next trend but being THE trendsetter! Brought together by two complimentary models that are both distinguished, unique, and equally yoked in our goal for the Soul Food cuisine, to create a culture for our communities and families to have quiet prayers at the table again. Inspiring hope, unity, and love through Soul Food at its finest.

As a member of the Celebrity Soul Food franchise team,
you will receive the following training:
The Head Start Program is a comprehensive, step by step overview of all aspects of opening your franchise. Our team designed this targeted program to ensure that all the intricate details of opening a franchise are available to the franchisee, but the “Heavy Lifting” is completed by the Celebrity's Soul Food Management Team.
So, what do we mean by “The Heavy Lifting”?
That means that we want you as a franchisee to know every aspect of what it takes to open your franchise, be aware of, cognizant of the magnitude of the scope of work to the finest detail of the project. However, our mission is literally for you to be relieved of the major development tasks because we support you in completing all the details. That's "The Heavy Lifting"!
Celebrity’s Soul Food wants the franchisees to focus on the business, not the Real Estate, Financing, Business licensing, or some of the more major details that takes away your focus of hiring the right professionals to run the operation and service the customers. It is our expectation that you should focus on hiring, training, and setting the proper foundation for your team so that they can execute the Celebrity's Soul Food standards, and you and your business are prepared to thrive day one!
