Support the independent voice of South Florida and help keep the future of New Times free.

Turn on the radio or the television and you'll hear the usual nightly coverage of stocks tanking, unemployment rates rising and other tales of doom and gloom. 

Many pundits say the best hope for our country's economy is by encouraging entrepreneurship through small business.

If that's the case, the south Florida food/restaurant industry is doing its part to help our economy by supplying us with talented entrepreneurs.
