Chef Crissy Faison

     Crissy, a native of Chicago Heights, Illinois, has dreamt of establishing her own mark in the culinary industry for years and she is now making it happen. Soul food has always been her passion, not only because of its’ savory, southern deliciousness, but because soul food has a way of bringing friends and family together to share in life, laughter, and love.​ 

     Crissy relocated to North Carolina to become a proud alumni of North Carolina A&T State University where she earned her Bachelors in Journalism and Mass Communications, as well as Wake Tech Community College where she earned her Associates in Business Administration. She is married to her wonderful and supportive husband Wylie Faison.​

     Crissy would like to give a special thanks to everyone who has supported her over the years and in some way helped to make this dream a reality. She states, “When others believe in your dream as much as you do, it pushes you that much harder to achieve them.”
