Lewis previously served as a travel consultant in the medical industry, but when the coronavirus pandemic hit, he lost his job. He said his family and friends encouraged him to start selling food and once he started cooking birria tacos, his business went “crazy”. Lewis said he started out selling food in Huber Heights, moved on to doing pop-ups for businesses in the area, borrowed a food truck during the winter months, and cooked at Back Home Tavern & Table on Brown Street in Dayton.
