Their model is a family that prays together stays together, and Mumphord explained why having a family reunion is so significant to him.
“My dad, a week before he passed away he asked me to keep this going if it’s 2 or 3, have this family reunion so that’s a big significant to me doing something my dad asked me to do,” said Mumphord.
This family-owned business has spent a lot of time giving back to the community. The Mayor from the City of New Orleans awarded the Mumphord’s for helping the people in need during Hurricane Katrina.
“About 150 was at the hotel, and we actually got a phone call from the County Commissioner asking if we would please help and it was automatic so twice a week would feed 150 people,” said Mumphord.
