Hosts Tracy Swain and JaVonne Williams are joined by Mrs. Kimberly Abrams-Parson of Mama’s Fixins Soulfood, BBQ & more. In today’s episode, Kimberly shares her entrepreneurial journey as a mobile catering business and how to connect and build community partnerships with other small and large businesses in the Central Florida area.
At the encouragement of family and friends, Mama’s Fixins originated as a lunch delivery service. Ms. Parson started out delivering to offices in the downtown Orlando, Sandford, Maitland, and Lake Mary areas. Within a short period, the lunch delivery service grew by word of mouth and transitioned into a mobile dining and catering service.
Mama’s Fixins’ menu features a variety of down-home favorites. Everything from Mama’s Original Fried Chicken, Southern fried fish, smothered pork chops, BBQ ribs, honey-glazed ham, collard greens, and macaroni & cheese to more traditional fares such as broiled and grilled fish, herb-roasted chicken, garlic smashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole and a host of other delicacies.
Prior to launching her mobile dining and catering business, Mrs. Abrams-Parson had a successful public service career in government administration working for various cities and counties that included the City of Belle Glade, FL, City of West Palm Beach, FL, City of Corvallis, OR, and the County of Greenville, SC. After seventeen years in public service, Mrs. Abrams-Parson started and operated Abrams & Associates Consulting where she provided training and assessment services to governmental entities, private and non-profits groups and organizations. She received both her B.A. Degree in Sociology and Master’s in Public Administration from the University of South Florida. She is also a Certified Family & Civil Mediator by the Florida Supreme Court.
