BBQ & Black Business Expo offers business owners fun, food, fellowship


Walter Bonham of The Food Lab catered a meal Friday night at the BBQ & Black Business Expo at the NECIC Urban Farm, 311 Bowman Street.

Rhonda Sylvester of Flippin’ Good Seasonings was among the Black business owners who set up a table Friday night at the BBQ & Black Business Expo at the North End Community Improvement Collaborative Urban Farm, 311 Bowman St.

She said she came up with the idea for a new seasoning business during the coronavirus pandemic instead of trying to open up a restaurant, which is expensive and difficult to operate during a pandemic.

“A lot of people were cooking at home,” she said. “This can enhance any ready-to-eat food.”

Sylvester, who has worked in the food industry since she was a 12-year-old attending Hedges School, said her parents got sick and, being the oldest, she cooked for her younger siblings.

She graduated from Augusta Escoffer School of Culinary Arts.

Her seasoning products can be purchased at Flippinggoodseasoning.com.

“On the side it says, ‘Move over salt and pepper,'” she said of her containers.

Rhonda Sylvester of Mansfield shows off her Flippin' Good Seasonings at the BBQ & Black Business Expo Friday night at the NECIC Urban Farm, 311 Bowman St. She created her new business during the coronavirus pandemic.

“There’s no right or wrong way to cook anything. This product makes food taste better, even restaurant food,” she said.

Her motto for the products?

“It ain’t good until it’s Flippin’ Good,” she said.

Stacey Young of Mansfield was promoting her Paparazzi jewelry business. She is an independent consultant.

In business for three years, Young said prices start at $1 for children’s jewelry and $5 for basic pieces for adults.
