From Jail To Fusion Powerhouse, The Story Of Fatima’s Grill

May 31, 2019

The Katchup episode we spent with Ali Elreda of Fatima's Grill was one of our personal favorites, and one of the most listened to episodes in the catalog. With Fatima's Grill's continued growth, we figured this week would be a good time to bring this episode back up for new listeners who may not have heard this incredible story.

We dive into prison food through the eyes of a man who worked the kitchen, only to open his own 'Insta-famous' restaurant years later. Self-made entrepreneur, Ali Elreda of Fatima's Grill, joins The Katchup podcast and touches on his troubled past, using Instagram as a tool to launch a restaurant, and why everyone is obsessed with Hot Cheeto menu items.
