Joy Dukes, President/ Owner
Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland gives me a unique prospective as a local business owner. I’m not only committed to operating a business that is socially responsible but also one which contributes to bring vitality to the community that we serve. With over 25 years of experience in the Hospitality Industry I have developed a passion and a purpose for providing my clients with an exceptional experience that is non-negotiable.
In late 1992, I accepted a position as a restaurant manager for Kentucky Fried Chicken National Company and discovered a passion for hospitality. Not long after joining the fast food industry I realized that in order to be successful in the hospitality industry, it would be necessary to diversify into other areas of management so I left the fast food industry after three years and accepted a position as a dietary manager for a local hospital.
In 2007 I formed A. L. Dukes, Inc., a food service contract management company, and purchased my first restaurant and became an owner. For the past six years I have successfully owned and operated a local franchise. Not resting on the success of a single unit, in 2010, Dukes Culinary Services, Inc was formed which provides off-site catering services throughout the Maryland. My brother and I have created a brand that provides a full-service mobile catering service that is a one-of-a-kind on site service second to none.
