Rashad’s story

My name is Chef Rashad Armstead I am the proud owner of a very successful catering company that serves throughout northern California. I spent many years in the food industry and have acquired many great skill but most of all I know how to make people happy with food.

Throughout my career I’ve always had a passion for teaching people the things I’ve learned and giving them the platform in which I wish i had coming up in the culinary world. I come from a long line of great home and professional chefs and they have taught me not only how to make food taste good but also how to never give up. With a few very successful years in business, I now think its time for me to help others reach even higher levels of success than me! 

This loan is special because:

It supports a socially-conscious entrepreneur’s food truck business.

About two months ago, I stepped out on faith and I purchased Street Degree’s first food trailer and i knew i had to do it and i told myself that I had to make it work so with the help of Kiva i plan to get the trailer permitted in surrounding counties and do a few updates that will get this truck ready to hit the road and give these deserving young people a chance to change their lives forever. I currently have many event date set up but I just need to get the trailer up to code and were ready to go.
