Detroit business reopens closed business thanks to $10K grant


DETROIT Detroit-based business owner is adjusting to the pandemic thanks to a grant from Comcast.

Original Story: Comcast Rise accepts grant applications from minority companies in Detroit, Highland Park, Hamtramck

The Comcast Rise program is designed to support minority small businesses in five major US cities. Local 4 covered the story in February, and 23-year-old Breona Camel, owner of Dinner Plate Catering Company in Detroit, listened.

After seeing the story, Camel applied for one of the $ 10,000 grants and was selected as one of 100 companies to receive the grant.

Comcast has given $ 1 million in grants to businesses owned by colored people.

Since there wasn’t a lot of catering, Camel had to close its business due to COVID. With her scholarship, she can turn her soul food with a food truck and bring it to the role.
