The concept of Chicken and Waffles was born in Harlem, New York in the 1930's. Wells served many celebrities as they hung out in the late night hours. Many of them could not decide if they wanted breakfast or dinner-Wells gave them both! Gladys Knight continues the Chicken and Waffles tradition. Gladys Knight and Ron Winans, together with Shanga Hankerson, developed: Gladys Knight and Ron Winans' Chicken & Waffles. Her son, Shanga, continues the tradition. Shanga's additional connection to the restaurant industry started very early when his father introduced him to working in a butcher shop in Detroit, Michigan. The family also had a restaurant for a period of time and learned the pitfalls of owning a restaurant. The hard work in the butcher shop and the first experience of owning a restaurant did not deter Shanga. He continued to display a strong desire and passion to stay connected with restaurants. Shanga had a dream of starting his own restaurant some day -A restaurant that would serve the food that he had grown up with, while also adding to the legacy of his mother.
