Several blacks are taking advantage of the opportunities to join the Steak ‘N Shake franchise. Here is an interview with yet another female who is putting on that golden apron.
Born and raised in St. Louis MO, Stacey White is a twin and the youngest of four sisters. One day, Her mom Deborah C. Johnson, who was a private duty nurse bought a mail truck and turned it into a snow cone truck. She became the neighborhood candy lady and that helped put Stacey and her sisters through school.
When asked what made her want to become a Franchise Steak ‘N Shake Owner? Stacey says: “My mom loved Steak ‘N Shake, this was her family gathering place. It would make her happy every month. She would cash her check and take the grand kids out to eat. Steak ‘N Shake was affordable, and the expressions on the children’s faces were priceless.”
Her mom continued that tradition until she passed away in 2012.
So when the opportunity presented itself, It was a no-brainer for Stacey to become a Steak ‘N Shake Franchise Owner. She stated, “I wanted to see others shine with their families and recreate that family experience,I prayed on it, talked to my guy and just did it.”
While on her journey, putting in long hours at Steak ‘N Shake. Stacey has received much help and support from Ms. Shirley and also from her mentor Press McDowell, who owns his own Steak ‘N Shake as well.
I asked Stacey When it’s all said and done, what is it that you want people to know about you?
“That I helped the community and was a part of making things happen for the community and my family.”
