Marvin Whitesides doesn’t know anything, but food.
Staring at a Belvedere in a dealer window, certain he had to have it, his father told him he could have the car, but he would have to get a job to pay for it.
At 16 years old, Whitesides went into the food industry to pay back his loan to his father. He had no intentions of aspiring as a restaurateur, but 34 years later he can’t imagine doing anything else.
