Tropicaleo, the 2016 winner of The BIG PITCH, presented by PNC, and the inaugural tenant of our restaurant accelerator, REVeal Kitchen, collected an impressive number of media mentions and community highlights over the past few weeks since opening in The Pizitz Food Hall. Owners Gabe and Isabel will continue to operate in REVeal Kitchen for a few more months , as they work to further refine their operations and validate their concept before opening their permanent brick-and-mortar location in Avondale.

If you’ve been following REV for a while, you probably remember The Big Pitch Competitions we used to hold back in the day.

Let’s start with some of our finalists that are based in the City of Birmingham and see what they’ve been up to!

You can swing by and check out Woodlawn’s newest addition on Tuesday – Saturday from 11:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. It’s always a good time to support a female, black-owned local business! We talked to Tish a little bit more about her journey to opening her very own brick and mortar store. Keep reading to learn more!
