Local business gives food entrepreneurs the tools to succeed – FOX13 News Memphis

CORDOVA, Tenn. — Starting your own food business can seem like a daunting task.

Richard and Molly McCracken own a local meal prep business.

The couple said their passion for helping others led to their own business venture that happened in the spur of the moment.

“We started in our friend’s kitchen, who just wanted us to come and make food for him,” Richard said.
