Lane SBDC Presents: Happy's Java
and Soul Food Shack


Happy talks about his personal journey and success story. Watch the
video or read his story.

As Derrick Pruitt explains, “Working with both Frank Plaisted and
Gary Smith [instructors of the SBDC] has had the most impact on my
business.

Without their help, guidance and mentorship there is no Happy’s Java and
Soul Food Shack…Gary and Frank together are just genius.”
