Mobile native, CEO and entrepreneur of Southern Culture Foods, Erica Barrett will open a restaurant coming the fall of 2019 in Downtown Mobile.

Southern Culture Kitchen and Oyster Bar will be located in the former Saisho restaurant at 455 Dauphin Street in Downtown Mobile.

Erica Barrett started Southern Culture Foods back in 2012 as new artisan breakfast products all made by hand but her fame first began when she appeared on the 2014 season of the hit ABC show Shark Tank where she struck a deal on the show. Southern Culture Foods products can be found in over 4,000 locations around the world. Some of her most popular products include waffle and pancake mix, banana pudding and praline bacon rubs.

In 2016, she was featured on Oprah’s Favorite Things for her Southern Grits Trio which include truffle and sea salt grits, garlic and herb grits, and original stone ground grits.

Her reputation as an entrepreneur in the food industry will certainly make Southern Culture Kitchen and Oyster Bar a destination stop for food travelers to Downtown Mobile. We can’t wait to try it out!
