The owner of Taste & See is a self-taught artist, a former art teacher and hospice administrator.

A Neshoba County native, Floyd Bozeman opened his first Taste & See restaurant in 2010 in Sebastopol and the one in Philadelphia in 2014.

But we must be mindful of those who will try to take advantage during times of crisis and disasters.
