NATIVE FOODS IN CHICAGO’S SOUTH LOOP USHERS IN A NEW ERA OF BLACK AND EMPLOYEE OWNERSHIP

Updated: Jan 30





Chicago, IL – January 2024 –This Veganuary, the Chicago culinary scene shines a spotlight on its diverse vegan options, with a special focus on Native Foods in the South Loop. The beloved vegan eatery now heralds a new chapter as it becomes Black and employee-owned, thanks to the entrepreneurial spirit of Dame Dia.


In September 2023, a significant milestone occurred for Native Foods. Dame Dia, the former Chicago District Manager for the brand, was presented with an extraordinary birthday present: the chance to become the owner of Chicago’s last standing Native Foods location. This news was enthusiastically welcomed by the community, particularly by those who were concerned about the potential closure of the Chicago Loop location following the earlier shutdowns of the Wicker Park and Lakeview branches. Dame officially assumed ownership of the restaurant in late November 2023.
