Florence is a lifelong entrepreneur who has always dreamed of turning her love of cooking and traditional African foods into a business. She immigrated to the United States in 1997.

Since coming to Minnesota, Florence has worked as a staffing coordinator, a mortgage broker, life coach, published author of the book “My Choices” and a motivational speaker.

Helping others succeed is a driving force in both her personal and entrepreneurial life.

She started the African Dynamic Women’s network, which brings together African women from around the region on a monthly basis to share resources, knowledge, fellowship, intellectual discussions, accountability in a relaxed atmosphere.

Networking with other African business owners and entrepreneurs is partly what motivated Florence to start Chef Flo-K Foods.

“Many Africans in this America, work so hard and have such busy lifestyles that they do not have time to cook and eat healthy homemade African foods,” she said.

Her signature Afric Stew "Time Saver", makes it easy for people to enjoy a healthy and flavorful foods on the go. The stew can be eaten hot or cold, and works great as a base to pair with any array of vegetables, proteins and grains.
