Clarence Hamed Muhammad, owner of Muhammads Meats & Desserts Vegetables. Florin Road, South Sacramento.
Our main target market right now is being essential, and providing to the black community healthy foods, meats, desserts, or whatever else it is that we can get that we're going to take internally outside of the spirituality. Before the pandemic, I was at a real growth spurt. We were shut down for a little while by the owner of the building so that really had set me back. This building is 100% black-owned and we’re family here when it comes down to that. I had a few other businesses in here that backed me and supported me. One of my mottos that I tell everybody in the building is that no business in here should go hungry with Muhammad's being here. Anything within my means, if I can keep my people fed, I'm going to keep my people fed.
