Chris William, a 26-year-old Southside Chicago native, has surmounted his struggle with homelessness to make history as the youngest Black-American Subway franchise owner in Atlanta Georgia.

While still a homeless youth, Williams worked extremely hard to overcome his setbacks in life.

As a teen, Williams moved from the Southside of Chicago to Phoenix Arizona to attend Finance School and begin a better life.

Following a streak of disappointments from various job opportunities, he found himself homeless and often slept in his rental car.

However, life would smile on him again when he was hired as an Automotive Finance Manager after four months of being homeless.

Determined to achieve his goal, Williams was able to raise over $12,000 for a separate business.

According to Blackbnews, a year and a month later, 26-year-old Chris Williams, went from being homeless to making history as the youngest African-American Subway Franchise owner in Atlanta.

Meanwhile, historically, most men were not given culinary training while growing up but the few who learn how to cook, become the best at what they do and one of such men is the ''doctor'', the owner of Stomach Clinic.

Doctor’s Stomach Clinic, is a local eatery which serves popular native dishes with fresh meat and irresistible accompanying soups prepared with natural ingredients.
