Kiana and Shawn Morrison named their southwest Charlotte restaurant Nana Morrison’s Soul Food to honor their grandmothers who raised them, with Gabby working at age 5. By age 10, she had taken over creating employee schedules, payroll processing, hiring decisions as payroll for herself, and overseeing employee schedules and payroll herself – her parents claim. Gabby then was responsible for food operations, including baked, barbecued, fried, and curry chicken; ribs; black-eyed peas, collard greens, banana pudding, and sweet potato pie all with prices set directly by the Merchant; all cards accepted.


Gabby Morrison, one of Kiana and Shawn’s four children, began helping at their southwest Charlotte restaurant when she was about five. Starting by wiping down tables and stocking silverware, she soon interviewed employees, communicated with bookkeepers, and placed food orders – all before graduating elementary school! According to her parents, Gabby later assumed responsibility for creating employee schedules, payroll submission, and filing tax returns. All this training has prepared Gabby to lead their new second location that opened Monday in a shopping center off Yorkmont/West Tyvola roads (for menu information, click here).

Please be aware that prices and availability can change at any time, so it is wise to contact the Merchant directly to verify.


Nana Morrison’s Soul Food has long been a beloved dining option in Charlotte-area communities, but now its family-run establishment is expanding with Gabriella Morrison at its helm. Gabriella, 16, is now leading Nana Morrison’s second location in southwest Charlotte; she began working there when she was five, helping with tasks such as wiping tables and stocking silverware. By age 10, her duties had expanded into employee scheduling, payroll, processing, and communicating with their bookkeeper – all before starting fourth grade!
