Rima KC

Rima KC's journey is a testament to embracing the unexpected. With a background in nursing, Rima's path took a delicious turn in January of 2020, when she found herself at the helm of a fine wine and dine restaurant in Bethesda, Maryland. What began as an unplanned venture quickly blossomed into a passion for creating exceptional dining experiences.

Leveraging her natural leadership and dedication to quality, Rima transformed her restaurant into a beloved local destination. Her success didn't stop there. Rima's entrepreneurial spirit has led her to develop and launch several new concepts, showcasing her creativity and vision for the industry. With a keen eye for opportunity, Rima is constantly on the lookout for exciting new locations to share her culinary vision. This accidental restaurateur is now a seasoned entrepreneur, and her story is far from over.

After a fulfilling career in the food industry, entrepreneur and restaurateur Rima KC is ready to take her passion for deliciousness on the go. She's setting her sights on launching a series of fast-casual concepts perfectly sized for malls, airports, and other high-traffic areas across Maryland, Virginia, and D.C. This exciting new venture will leverage Rima's expertise to deliver high-quality, convenient meals to busy customers on the move.

Rima KC's impressive career just got even more exciting! She was recently selected for Brookfield Properties' prestigious "Power to Empower" program. This program fosters the growth of talented entrepreneurs, and Rima is thrilled for the opportunity to develop her business alongside their guidance. She extends her gratitude to Michelle Isabell, VP of the program at Brookfield Properties, for recognizing her potential. This is sure to be a springboard for Rima's future endeavors!
