How We Got StartedHarold E. Sparks, a handsome young man from Hamilton, Ohio leaves the security of a foreman position at Fisher Body, a division of General Motors, and moves to Inglewood, CA to fulfill his dream of opening a soul food restaurant. "The Serving Spoon" ™ The idea of providing excellent food that is not only "Love At First Bite”, but a place where customers feel like family, quickly caught on. “The Spoon”, as often called by many, has served customers ranging from entertainers to politicians to the neighbor next door. All in the spirit of making you feel at home, with food that’s good for the soul. Harold’s daughter and son-in-law now own and operate the family business, and are developing key markets throughout the United States.
