Albany restaurant owner grateful for gift to help grow

Kizzy Williams always knew she had a gift when it came to cooking. However, the gift wasn’t initially paying off.

She was on food stamps, making $8.25 an hour cleaning toilets and making beds.

Becoming an entrepreneur was her dream, but there was no generational wealth from her family to assist her, and no one would give her a loan.

Williams saved her income tax refund, and nine years ago, Allie B’s Cozy Kitchen became a reality. The business was thriving.

Then in 2020, she met Ed Mitzen. She now has a new website, is opening a second location, and has a business van. When she talks of Mitzen, it is not just about how his nonprofit, Business for Good, has helped her strategize and improve her business’s bottom line. It is also about how Mitzen has seemingly bestowed upon her the agency to dream bigger.
