A Nod to Entrepreneurial Spirit

The Spirit of the Entrepreneur Award, presented by the Inland Empire Center for Entrepreneurship (IECE) at California State University San Bernardino, is more than just an accolade. It recognizes the fiery spirit, innovation, and risk-taking of entrepreneurs who significantly contribute to our local economy and community. And who better represents that spirit than Benita, who has always ensured that Gram’s BBQ is not just a restaurant but a gathering place where traditions are honored, and every guest is family.

Benita’s Journey: A Tale of Flavor and Tenacity
