Over the next few weeks leading up to NFTE NY Metro’s Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge (YEC) Semi-Finals happening June 4th, we will be profiling every student participating in YEC. Stay Tuned. Today, we are profiling Phylicea E and Zurri A, Co-CEOs of P&Z’s Wingz & Tingz.
P&Z’s Wingz & Tingz’s mission is to bring satisfying, authentic Jamaican cuisine to staff and students throughout New York City. With over 20 years of combined cooking experience, Phylicea and her partner, Zurri, grew up in Jamaican households where they were taught from a young age the tricks and trade of Jamaican cooking. Phylicea is currently in the eleventh grade at the Academy for Scholarship and Entrepreneurship in the Bronx with plans to major in Business and minor in Culinary Arts in the future.
