Janice Johnson of On the Bayou
Janice Johnson is the founder and chef at On the Bayou, a prime location for great food, entertainment, special events, and banquets. On the Bayou brings the flavor New Orleans and the skill of a 5-star chef. They offer a variety of dishes that are sure to keep you coming back for more. Whether it’s uniquely battered catfish or the succulent lamp chops, you are sure to find the dish perfect for your taste.
Janet’s entrepreneurial inspiration comes from “Having the freedom to create my own destiny, believing in a product that I know that people would enjoy, and knowing that both my successes and failures are direct results of ME and by ME.” She also says the best part of being a business owner is “seeing people leave with a smile on their face and being recognized as the owner of a business that God appointed me to take care of.”
When COVID hit, it forced Janice to think outside the box and come up with new creative solutions. She was able to restructure her business to make I more successful. Earlier this month, On the Bayou was featured on the Food Network show Restaurant Impossible with Robert Irvine. Janice’s hard work and entrepreneurial spirit led her to enroll in the BizStarts Institute https://bizstarts.com/ bizstarts-institute/) which she graduated from in May. BizStarts is excited to work with Janice and the other Institute entrepreneurs by providing them with resources for them to make their business thrive!
