Up next: Moni's Soulfood Fiesta Restaurant (Elgin, IL)
The culinary wonder that is Monique Howery, who founded Moni's Soulfood Fiesta, was ignited when the young entrepreneur began selling homemade dinners out of salons and barbershops in 2010 for extra income and simply because of her joys and love of cooking.
I started my restaurant to give back. My restaurant is more than just a place to eat. It's a place of comfort to the less fortunate. A place of warmth to those in need of heat. I love giving back to my community at All times. It gives me joy to see others smile. I need finances to be able to keep going.
