If you live in Greensboro, chances are you have seen the blue, Carolina Finest Food Truck parked with a crowd of individuals around it. Owner and Chef, Lasonya Boulware is the reason for the crowd. Inside she is cooking up some delicious entrees that has generated a following amongst food enthusiasts.

Also acknowledged as, “My Girls Catering,” the Cleveland, Ohio native began cooking at a young age with her mother. “There were five of us and I could remember coming home from school and always having a cooked meal waiting for me,” she says. At the age of 10, they left Ohio and settled in Blair, S.C. She began catering five years ago for churches in South Carolina.

Before opening her food truck, Boulware worked for Fresenius Medical Care for 16 years as a certified dialysis technician. Something deep down on the inside kept telling her that there was something else for her to do with her life. “Being from Cleveland, I have always had an infatuation with food trucks. I could walk out my door and there would be two or three trucks parked on the road,” she says. She decided to further her career in education by obtaining a Culinary Arts degree at Guilford Technical Community College. She received her certificate in June 2015, and opened the food truck the following month. Her last day of employment with Fresenius was in December 2015.

Boulware offers a large variety of entrees and food items. Their specialty is soul food; however because of her vast knowledge of food, their menu includes items from several different cultures. Her most popular item are wicked wings and grilled chicken salad with a drizzle of the wicked wing sauce.

Operating her food truck, Boulware says it’s a family affair. “My husband Chris and daughters, Madison and Haleigh are always willing to help in the kitchen and on the food truck. They both have said that they want to be in some form of the cooking industry once they grow up. Madison wants to be a Chef and Haleigh wants to be a Culinary Chemist. I am so proud of them both and I cannot wait to see how they will grow in the coming years,” she says.
