City Match winner Supreme Café opened March 21 in the Bagley neighborhood. The new restaurant, bakery, and catering service specializes in healthy, organic, and halal-friendly food. The ribbon-cutting ceremony–attended by Supreme Café founder Jamaal Muhammad, Mayor Mike Duggan, city officials and community members–took place just in time for Ramadan, a holy observance for Muslims where followers abstain from eating between sunrise and sunset.
The ceremony marked the 146th brick-and-mortar business opened by Motor City Match.
Muhammad migrated from Mississippi to Detroit in 2018 looking for opportunities to serve his community and achieve his entrepreneurial vision. In addition to providing healthy and wholesome food for the community, Muhammad said Supreme Café has a greater mission of providing employment and revitalization in the Bagley neighborhood, where his establishment resides.
