Starting a business is challenging under any circumstances but amidst all the uncertainty of 2020, the opening of Barbie Q was understatedly an uphill battle. With the world on pause, owner Fortune Southern focused her energy on fulfilling her dreams by transitioning her long running food truck into a full service restaurant. After years of sweat and sacrifice, she has persevered as one of the only black female owners to find success in an unforgiving, male dominated world of street food. Against all odds, Fortune took her experience from the tireless chaos of the food truck industry and paired it with unique and homestyle flavors from her childhood. Through all this adversity Barbie Q was born. And even with all the passion and excitement of a new chapter, Fortune remains poised on upholding the pillars of integrity which have defined her business: Bold Flavors, Consistent Quality and Unmatched Customer Service.
