Woman Launches First Black Owned Grocery Store In Compton, California

To really succeed in life you must do what others thought was impossible and work hard to make that dream become a reality. True leaders must think outside of the box and make things happen; even when all odds are stacked against them. Take Kia Patterson for example.

The young entrepreneur just opened up the first black owned grocery store franchise. The “Grocery Outlet,” which is located in the heart of Compton, California.

In a brief interview, Kia explains that store opened it’s doors just two short months ago. Though the store is new, she’s a veteran in the industry. She worked at Smart & Final for years until she decided to open a store of her own.

If you’d like to stop by and shop at “The Grocery Outlet”, the store is located at 2175 W. Rosecrans Ave Compton, Ca. 90220.

Thank you, Kia, we salute you!
