Entrepreneurial Journeys featuring Isaac B. Horton IV, Co-founder Oak City Fish & Chips
The Entrepreneurial Journeys Monthly Speaker Series
The founders of Oak City Fish And Chips are the quintessential foodies, constantly craving things delicious! As a group of young serial entrepreneurs, they turned their attention to discovering how they could position themselves to share their passion for amazing food experiences with the people of The City of Oaks: Raleigh, NC.
Isaac B. Horton is a UNC Greensboro graduate and has become a serial entrepreneur. After graduating, he worked for Lenovo at Research Triangle Park, and after only a year, decided to break out on his own to pursue his entrepreneurial journey. Isaac is a cofounder of Oak City Fish and Chips Food Truck, which launched in 2015 and has four food trucks in operation around the city. His company is currently set to expand into Mecklenburg County, as well as Los Angeles. Be on the lookout for The Oak City Fish and Chips brick-and-mortar location, which is set to open in the Morgan Street Food Market in Raleigh, NC in late 2017. Not only is this a huge accomplishment for Isaac and his company, but also helps to make progressive steps in business ownership – this brick-and-mortar will make Isaac the first African American restaurant owner in downtown Raleigh. We’re proud to have Isaac and his team as part of the HQ Community, and we’re excited to have him speak at HQ Greensboro on October 19th as part of UNCG’s Entrepreneurial Journeys Speaker Series!
