Beneva Mayweather Foods is owned and operated by Daniel Watson. Daniel Watson, the youngest grandson of Beneva Mayweather, developed the Beneva Mayweather Brand in 2007. It was important to Daniel that Beneva’s legacy, after her passing in 2000, lived on through the food products that made Mayweather Catering one of the premier food service businesses in Memphis and the Mid-South. It was, in fact, the driving force that brought Daniel directly from Morehouse College with a Cum Laude degree in 2004 back to Memphis, turning down lucrative job offers along the way to take the catering service to another level.
It was also in Memphis where he got the motivation from Beneva’s oldest daughter and former business partner Emma Lincoln, who with the help of her friend Denise Sims wrote Our Mother’s Table: The Culinary Journey of Beneva Mayweather, to embark on the journey of ensuring Beneva’s legacy lives on. This was ensured through the development of various products that were used by Beneva in the business. Everything from salad dressings to ice cream were considered, but the seasonings and breadings were the perfect fit. With the assistance of Emma, who now owns and operates Emma Mayweather Lincoln, Caterer, and a slew of friends and family, Beneva Mayweather Foods has a line of six breaders and seasonings as well as homemade gourmet yeast rolls and cinnamon rolls all from the Lovin’ Ovens of Beneva Mayweather. Understandably, these products are more than about Beneva and her legacy in the eyes of Daniel. It’s about being a responsible leader in bringing Memphis to the forefront of being a city that is full of dedicated and talented citizens who want Memphis to be bigger than life and not just the recipient of negative headlines and unfavorable media exposure. The fact that Daniel, Beneva Mayweather Foods, and his family’s catering business can have this foundation in Memphis and not any other city is something that is near and dear to the heart of all businesses in and from Memphis.
Now there’s one more dedicated citizen focused on having a positive impact on job creation, leadership initiatives, and overall economic development here in the city of Memphis! With the world as its stage, the Beneva Mayweather Brand is honored to provide our wonderfully diverse and savvy consumer population with memorable and timeless culinary delights just like your grandmother, mother, aunt, sister, godmother or any remarkable woman in your life did and continues to do.
