Pinky Cole Reflects On Her Roots

The episode kicks off with the 36-year-old letting viewers into her upbringing in Baltimore. Additionally, Cole explained the day she was born, her father was sentenced to 30 years in prison.

“So I became a hustler at a young age,” Cole explained.

From there, Cole shared what inspired her to plant her ambitions in entrepreneurship.

“I saw my mother being this woman who was loyal to a company, and then I also saw my father — even though he was physically inside bars — mentally he was so sharp and really gave me the tools that I needed to be great,” she continued.

With “Baltimore grit” and tools from her father, Cole would find herself raking in the cash early.

“So I got that Baltimore grit in me from early on, and I could remember as a kid, I would be throwing parties, I would be selling candy, I was selling frozen cups,” she explained. “So, I always had that hustler in me early, and it allowed me to develop as an entrepreneur over the years. But I attribute that to my upbringing and to the city of Baltimore.”

How Working As A ‘Maury’ Producer Sparked Her First Restaurant

However, before Cole found herself in the restaurant business, she secured a position working as a TV producer on ‘Maury.’ Furthermore, Cole calls the experience her “big break moment.”

“And it was my big break moment because I got to meet people from all around the world who were all going through things,” she explained. “…So many people from around the world [are] dealing with the same issues, and I got to engage with those people in a different kind of way, and it made me realize my problems aren’t that bad.”

From there, Cole launched her first restaurant, Pinky’s Jamaican & American Restaurant. Eventually, she decided to focus exclusively on her restaurant endeavors.
