The Peters family has formed a legacy within the culinary industry that has lasted several generations and continues on to this day. Aunt Shirley’s parents, Joe and Thelma Peters, owned and operated the Cozy Corner Restaurant for 25 years, feeding many folks and families within the Dallas, TX community. After working thousands of days and nights in the family restaurant, Aunt Shirley developed a passion for cooking, but also grew a strong appetite for the chance to create new and exciting food on her own.
Aunt Shirley had a clear vision and she worked hard to launch an exciting new line of food products using a whole lotta sweet potatoes. Her most popular line of mixes included sweet potato waffles, sweet potato brownies, sweet potato pound cake and sweet potato pie. The name of this line? Aunt Shirley’s, of course. After many successful years, she grew tired of the gourmet world, and decided to team up with her son to join in the food truck frenzy. Now they cruise the Dallas streets to serve chicken & waffles, catfish & waffles, waffle sandwiches, waffle burgers, and simply sweet waffles, using her signature gourmet recipes, sweet potato base, and the finest quality ingredients.
Dallas locals flock to Aunt Shirley’s everywhere it roams for a taste of her sensationally soulful specialties. The Texas State Fair, Taste of Dallas, Bix Texas Beer Festival, etc... Aunt Shirley and her son have fed crowds by the thousands, leaving each and every customer beyond satisfied by their other divine offerings. If you’re looking for good cookin’ for your next event, we strongly suggest that you book Aunt Shirley’s. This family-run operation is as sweet and smooth as sweet potato pie and Aunt Shirley can’t wait to make your event a special occasion with their customizable catering services. These are fun times and flavors that you’ll never forget!
The Chickeandee — The sweet-and-savory medley of your dreams what with these juicy fried chicken tenderloins pressed between sweet potato waffles.
S&N Food Company stands for Shirley and Nathan Food Company, my mother’s name and my name. My mom and I were best friends. So, anything she did she always included me.
My mother Shirley Peters taught me how to cook.
I never was into the corporate world. I always told myself I would never work for anybody. I want to control my destiny and my future.
My grandmother Thelma Peters encouraged me to start my own business. My grandparents owned a soul food restaurant for 25 years and had a great life with four kids.
My favorite event would definitely be EarthX Day.
The Chickeandee sandwich. The sandwich is unique. It’s crispy chicken chopped up with lettuce, cucumbers, and cucumber ranch in between two sweet potato waffles.
