We had the good fortune of connecting with Kandice Hunter and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kandice, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I was already a business owner, I’m the owner of Posh Aesthetics by Kandy a med spa here in Houston, but I wanted to do something that was my passion and that was cooking. I wanted to bring the taste of New Orleans to Texas, serving authentic New Orleans food.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I’m most proud about opening this restaurant because it means a lot to me. This was a business I invested all of my personal funds on, and put all my blood, sweat and tears into.

I got to this place in my life through hard work, persistently and prayer. God has played a major roll in this blessing, he has been so good to me.

What sets Voodoo Seafood & Lounge apart from others is we’re a vibe, we offer great food, friendly staff & a fun atmosphere.

It was not easy, I went through disrespectful employees, a large turnover but I’m at a point now where everything is in place.

I want the world to know Voodoo Seafood & Lounge is here, and we’re always ready to serve you.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I don’t do much in the city, I’m a home body pretty much. I’m a introvert. When I do go out, I love to go to Kamp, or Kemah. Kemah is a whole vibe!

But pretty much I stay at home with my two dogs Bailey who is a French bulldog, and LoLa who is a English bulldog.

If I’m not at my businesses, I’m most definitely home.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Growing up I was always alone, even in my adult years. I always strived for better no matter what. I take pride in wanting more because I deserve more. Many woman like Supa, & B Marie are my biggest inspiration. They come from the bottom & worked their worked their way to the top, I love them and I really am inspired by them.
