MD Foods, LLC was created & established by New Orleans native Marcus Cummings. His passion for food was instilled in his heart through growing up in New Orleans, LA which has a unique culture. For him, the "Big Easy" was a very family-oriented place that produced great times from family gatherings. Countless hours were spent around family preparing authentic cajun cuisines. Marcus consistently experienced his "Grandma Myrtle" hold the family together through various trials with her love for overcoming obstacles and celebrating positives with a food-featured family gathering.
He obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing with a minor in Management from the University of New Orleans. He then went on to pursue a Masters in Business Administration from Texas A&M Commerce shortly thereafter. Upon obtaining his M.B.A, Marcus was afforded the opportunity to audition for one of the biggest culinary shows in America. He beat out thousands to advance to the top 100 where he gained professional insight and experiences involving the culinary world. He also possesses years of experience with "Corporate America."
Picking up various methods and tips through research and shadowing various seasoned chefs, Marcus went on to cook for multiple celebrities, professional athletes, and business professionals. These experiences allowed him to elevate his culinary palate to a more refined one, which he wants to share with the world through various products and services.
His resume includes cooking at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Essence Music Festivals, business sponsors, community events, campus demonstrations, and non-profit causes just to name a few.
