Women in Food: Sharon Mays of Baby Greens

In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness month, we are celebrating women in our food community that are helping to make Texas, and the world, a better place. 

Sharon Mays of Baby Greens Restaurants is working to make good, healthy food more accessible to Texans. After shuttering her stores in 2009, Mays led the relaunch the Baby Greens brand in 2016 with a renewed commitment to sustainability and offering fresh ‘fast’ food to her customers. Today, you can find the drive-thru restaurant on Anderson Lane   and full scale catering by request.

Why It is Important To You To Support Women in the Food Community:

When I first entered the restaurant world, I was really surprised at the lack of women. I want women (of all ages) to know that they have as much talent and passion and drive and innovation as men. Actually, I want men to know that too. I could write a novel about how incredibly difficult it is to be a female restaurateur. But I’ll boil it down to this – women supporting women is how we will thrive in this industry. There are men and women in my circle of industry friends and supporters. But on days where I feel like I’m at the end of my rope, it’s always a woman telling me “Girl, get up. You got this.”
