About Chef Moni
This is when she knew it was time to step out on her own and soar to new heights starting her own business with her first starter location in Dekalb, Illinois on Northern Illinois University's College Campus.
It was on NIU's campus where Monique began jerking a lot of her soul food items due to the high demand and popular trend but Moni's began to stick out from the rest. While merging ALL the flavors of her soulful black ancestry (which can be seen from glimpse of the pictures on her on restaurant walls) while incorporating some items with a Latin twist, Moni's menu became authentic and second to none.
The Culinary Wonders that is Monique Howery that has become Moni's Soulfood Fiesta was ignited when the young entrepreneur began selling homemade dinners out of salons and barbershops in 2010 for extra income and simply because of her joys and love of cooking.
During her work tenure in corporate America and even after having catered a host of potlucks and events, Monique's food and flavors were highly requested even after by local businesses such as J.P. Morgan Chase, Verizon, and Amazon just to name a few.
