A little backstory...

Alex Champagne began his career at

Fire & Rice as the Front of House & Bar Manager and has been a long-time resident of the neighborhood where he lives with his wife and young son. Fire & Rice is heading in a new direction after experiencing much turmoil since they opened in 2019.

 

After both the original owners decided to head in different directions, and a fiasco involving the restaurant's liquor license, Alex stepped in to take sole ownership of the restaurant, not being ready to give up on his dream of helping to build up his community and neighborhood.

 

During his time working at Fire & Rice, Alex worked with many of the neighborhood associations and other small businesses to benefit the community during the pandemic. He hopes to continue to create positive changes with the reopening of Fire & Rice through good food and supportive events.

A GoFundMe Campaign has been launched to aid

in the reopening process.
