PRLog - March 27, 2012 - HOUSTON -- Cherie Johnson has enlisted the help of close friend Janice Wright, founder of Houston 411 Magazine and Kay Matthews with Extraordinary Cakes. These women entrepreneurs plan to open “Datt’s It” Restaurant in a developmentally challenged and underserved area in southwest Houston. Cherie, Janice & Kay believe that opening the restaurant will address a need for more restaurant establishments in the area. Additionally, the trio expects to increase employment, and Ms. Johnson’s ability to attract celebrity interest in the project may spur further economic development in the area.
”Living in Los Angeles has allowed me to witness what happens when entrepreneurs realize the opportunity and invest in underdeveloped and otherwise forgotten areas in a city,” said Ms. Johnson. The group has also sought and received the guidance of Houston and Atlanta businessman Toney Means. “These entrepreneurs fill the void in public interests in investing in these areas either from apathy or lack of available funds” stated Mr. Means. “I believe these ladies have the recipe for success in this venture and in future opportunities. This belief has led me and my investment group to support their activities” continued Means.
“Datt’s It” will feature American fare such as burgers, hot dogs, fish and chicken and on weekends will feature Saturday breakfasts and a Sunday brunch. The restaurant will begin showcasing live music on Friday and Saturday nights beginning in May. The hours of operation are 10am to 10pm on Monday through Thursday. Friday 10am to 1am. Saturday hours are 8am to 1am and finally Sunday from 10am to 6pm. The restaurant is located at 10101 Bissonnet St Houston Texas, 77036. Cherie, Janice & Kay plan additional ventures in underserved neighborhoods in Houston and other Metropolitan areas.
