    Kourtni Phillips

    Owner of BBQ City in Houma, Louisiana


    Kourtni Phillips is the heart and soul behind BBQ City, a “little gem” of Southern BBQ in Houma, Louisiana, that’s quickly become a haven for barbecue enthusiasts. Since opening its doors in 2021, BBQ City has achieved high marks from customers for its array of moist and smoky meats — the pulled pork and ribs are standouts — and classic sides like “must-have” mac-n-cheese.

    In 2023, Kourtni secured a $200 DreamSpring loan for quick working capital that helped her purchase more inventory and consolidate business debt, strengthening her business as she continues attract even more loyal clientele.
