Congratulations Chef Ken ???
Owner Wilkinson Sejour, affectionately known as Chef Creole, is well known around Little Haiti, but he has managed to attract the attention of county commissioners, a famous chef, big-time developers and scores of loyal customers. Last night Sejour opened his sixth Chef Creole location at Miami International Airport.
Miami-Dade Aviation Director, Lester Sola, said Chef Creole will increase the diversity of foods served at MIA.
“With nonstop flights to more than 150 destinations around the world, our goal is for the future of the shops and restaurants at Miami International Airport to be as diverse as the passengers we serve, and as diverse as Miami-Dade County,” he said.
Sejour’s restaurants, including the MIA location, employ more than 50 people, most of whom reside in the Little Haiti area.
“More than a businessman, I am my community’s biggest supporter,” he said. He is willing to take a chance on employees who have been denied by other employers, whether due to criminal records or lack of experience. “Growing up in Little Haiti, Lemon City, Liberty City, I understand that stuff happens. It doesn’t make you a bad person, it just means you made a mistake; I’m trying to solve the problem.”
