As not to interrupt or disturb the regular and arduous flow of business, the founder would begin preparation of the meals before sunrise, when the “Black” was “Out. “Thus BOC was born. Do to the overwhelming time constraints of the modern day school staff, Chef P, ( a classically trained and certified chef with a bachelor degree in psychology), was propelled to fill the void of affordable convenient five star cuisine. Out of those humble aspirations has grown what is now renowned as, The Black Out  all cuisine catering, personal chef, curb side pick up and healthy favorites meal plan Café.
