Nemanja Golubovic, Founder and CEO of Kale My Name & His Journey To Success
Nemanja Golubovic is a young man from Montenegro who is living his American dream. He has been trying to change the world one meal at a time by providing delicious plant-based options for everyone to contribute to the health of my customers and to keep the planet healthy as well.
How has the journey been for you to make Kale My Name so influential?
Nemanja: I have been in the restaurant industry for quite some time now and I had an amazing opportunity to learn a lot about the operations of the business. I eventually learned to figure out what works and what doesn’t work but I feel Kale My Name is doing so well because we show the world how diverse and inclusive veganism is. I am a part of the vegan community and we do things very differently which is why we stand out so much. We try to be as positive and as judgment-free as possible allowing non-vegans and people just starting to get into this lifestyle to have a great experience.
What do you enjoy most about the industry that you are in?
Nemanja: I ended up in this industry accidentally. I always joked about it and stuck with it until I thought something better would come along. I fell in love with the restaurant business when I started to make friends with the customers. I thought this was so rewarding and it made me so happy connecting and meeting so many people on a daily basis. It is something I am so passionate about and now this will be my lifetime call.
What else do you think is important for our readers to know about yourself and your company?
Nemanja: Well, I don’t like talking about myself that much but I adore talking about Kale My Name so I would love everyone to know that Kale My Name is a 100% plant-based restaurant founded in Chicago in April of 2020. It started with only take out and deliveries due to the pandemic and we eventually transitioned into dine-in. Overall there was so much love and support from the city and the neighborhood and we ended up expanding to Los Angeles in December with actress Tabitha Brown. She originally was just a customer and a friend of Kale My Name Chicago while she was shooting her show “The Chi” but then became my friend and business partner. We are not stopping at Kale My Name Los Angeles. We hope to expand bigger and stronger.
