This week on The Urban Business Roundtable, UBR Contributor Renita D. Young sits down with Chicago restaurateur Quentin Love. An interior designer, community developer, professional musician and barber, Love is a man of many talents and passions, but none more dear to him than his role as founder and CEO of the I Love Food Group. His company boasts a portfolio of several restaurants throughout Chicago, including Soul Xpress, Brown Sugar Bakery, Brother Tim’s Vegetarian Fast Food, 5 Loaves Breakfast Cafe, and the Quench! chain. Love launched his first restaurant, Quench!, 10 years ago in 2001.

Love is also the founder of the Love Foundation, a not-for-profit with the mission of enriching the lives of young people in the community. He joins the Roundtable to share how he parlayed his love for his community into business success.

Also, UBR Contributor Stephen Lewis talks with Morgan Stanley Investment Management Managing Director Carla Harris, author of the book Expect to Win: 10 Proven Strategies for Thriving In The Workplace (Plume).
