in providence…it’s the native americans, asians, & hispanics who got most of the commerce via brick & mortar poppin. black owned businesses there are more rare than in iowa. & they all have to play their spots wisely because the Italians that really run the city might have their hands in some of those coffers.
wasn’t the case for my pops but i’m willin to bet that sabets pizza was in bed with them.
you can’t jus broker deals with neighboring businesses in providence. greasy dudes in a white cadillac would visit you. real chop.
