Food Network

Oakland, CA–Pairings are created every day. What happens when California’s best fried chicken pairs with Black Vines? You get a match made in Oakland, one of the top food and dining destinations in the country.

The Food Network recently crowned Miss Ollie’s fried chicken as the best of California, located at 901 Washington Street, Old Oakland near Jack London Square. 

Fern Stroud, founder of Black Vines nearly a decade ago, is a Silicon Valley technology professional. She established Stroud Management Enterprise to focus attention on the need to bridge the gap between technology and community through music, food and wine, benefitting nonprofit organizations and small businesses.  Stroud further explains, “We couldn’t be happier to raise a toast to Miss Ollie’s for this esteemed accomplishment. The Black Vines platform was created to salute Black excellence, as well, to bring the Oakland community together in a positive, uplifting setting to envision our future."
