Ferguson business owner fights to keep business afloat

Posted: Updated:
FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Entrepreneur Steve Moore said he nearly lost his business in Ferguson after last year's unrest in the community.

Despite numerous setbacks, Moore's "Celebrity Southern Soulfood" restuarant is still up and running, and he is working to expand his brand.

Moore spoke with News 4's this Morning's Andre Hepkins about how he wants his story to inspire people to choose peace.

"I just want to challenge all these guys that are out here doing the violence that there is a better way," said Moore. "There are people out here who really love you. Use that energy in a positive way, and it could lead you to better opportunities, just like God has blessed me with."
