After signing a lucrative deal with the Houston City Council, a Black-owned management company based in Houston, TX, will shine a light on more businesses.
According to Aviation Pros, a $334 million 10-year contract between Latrelle’s Galley and the city of Houston will bring ten restaurants to William P. Hobby Airport.
The restaurants include, but are not limited to:
- Common Bond
- The Rustic
- Velvet Taco
- Dish Society
- Pinks Pizza
- Jersey Mike’s
The deal represents an opportunity for Latrelle’s Galley to pay it forward. The family-owned business got its start at Hobby Airport.
According to Houston Public Media, the company first sold baked goods in the airport in 1985.
“In 1985, my father’s first airport location was a 350-square-foot bakery in Hobby Airport. With today’s decision by this City Council, we will now operate over 17,000 square feet of Hobby Airport’s food and beverage locations. What an opportunity,” said Kenneth James, Chief Financial Officer, Latrelle’s Management, in a statement, according to Houston Public Media. “We are a local, family-owned and operated business. This is proof that given the access to compete on equal footing, small companies can execute large responsibilities. This is a privilege and an honor. We are humbled and grateful.”
