Hands Up Lake County 2022 Finalist

Nicole B Gentry – Grillagan’s Island

Nicole B Gentry has been passionately involved in the culinary business for several years. She discovered that it is not enough to have a passion and love for cooking, but knowledge of business management is also necessary. This is why she and her husband took courses in business management.

Inspired by her participation in the Hands Up Lake County Business Competition last year, she decided to take action and jumpstart her business concept, a grilled cheese restaurant called Grillagan’s Island. Her restaurant’s menu includes delicious grilled cheese sandwiches, homemade soups, and mouth-watering salads.
