T2D Concepts

When preparing an entree, you must be purposeful. 

From selecting the right ingredients to the preparation and presentation, the process demands your attention and thoughtfulness. 


At T2D Concepts, this purposeful and intentional approach is an ingredient in our business too.

Innovation + Impact

We want to ensure everyone is invited to "the table" and that we drive economic opportunity for all.  We believe we must help design this invitation.  We are developing Roots Chicken Shak to invite women chefs and chefs of color to be part of Roots to grow together. By marrying our successful operations plan with strategic funding, we will introduce the ingredients for the chefs to open their own Shak! Through business ownership, we hope to help close the gender and racial wealth gap.

Advocacy + Action

Our founders continuously work to drive awareness and action.  Eroding systemic inequities demands tireless effort.  Our work includes adocacy on the "Hill" for food policy, mentoring women-owned and minority-owned entrepreneurs, speaking on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I), and faciltiating corporate workshops on DE&I.  We would love to join you at your table, enjoy great food, and stimulating, though perhaps sometimes uncomfortable, conversations.
