Black Owned Businesses to Support in COS

UPDATED 6/9/2020

It is SO important for us to support black owned businesses. Black Lives Matter, and I’m proud to support the wonderful black owned businesses in Colorado Springs.

This is a collective list based on input via social media and my own personal knowledge. If a business is incorrectly listed here OR you have a business you’d like added, please let me know and I will adjust. This list is mostly restaurants, however I’m adding other businesses as they’re brought to my attention. Check back often, as I’ll continue to update this list with names and links to the businesses.

I plan to highlight black owned restaurants on Instagram (follow along here) through the rest of the week – so if you have a favorite meal at any of the black owned restaurants below, drop a comment so I can check them out and show them some love.

Please remember that due to COVID-19 some businesses may be temporarily closed, have limited hours, or only offer take-out.

    Hi! I’m Sharon Rodriguez from Black Diamond’s Treats and Eats. Thank you for adding me to the list. I look forward to having you all as customers very soon! Check out my page for Father’s Day menu! 🖤🖤

  2. Dee says

    You should check our Taste Bud Rescue. It’s a Black Owned Food Truck. They serve soul food! The ribs fall off the bone, the catfish is delicious & the sweet potato pie is off the chain!

    Thank you for putting together this list! On another note, if you are not an Indigenous person, the name “Springs Native” is offensive as it erases the ongoing violence of colonial settlement and the communities native to this land.

      Hi Sarah,

      I’m a Colorado Springs native as in I’ve spent (aside from college) my entire life here. I’d never mean to offend anyone or erase years of violence. The word native is also a synonym for local. In the way that I use it, I am referring to it in that meaning and not in reference to my heritage. That said, I’d love to have a conversation about this as I want to learn and grow and be sure I’m not throwing around a word that isn’t OK. Could you please email me?

    It is a true honor to be apart of this list! I look forward to helping each and every one of you with your housing needs. If you are looking to buy, sell or invest in Colorado, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at 719-232-0251 for any and all real estate questions.

    Hi, thank you for this list.

    I would like to point out that Beauty Bar is not a black owned business. I worked for them, they are Asian owned and their location on Tejon has a black manager.

  7. Meagan Thomas says

    Hi everyone – I know quite a few people have left comments with businesses to add. I will be adding them in the next 24 hours! Please have some patience with me while I get them up 🙂 Thank you for supporting our black community and please make an effort to visit some of these outstanding businesses.

  8. says

    Thank you so much for all the work you put in to making this list. My best friend, Giseleine Dogon, is the owner of Your Bliss Skin & Body Care here in town, and I would love an opportunity for more people to support her. She is a CC alum and also a native! Thanks again

    Hi! Is it possible in the future for addresses/plots on a Google Map to be added to this page? (or links to the businesses that may not have a permanent location like food trucks). I live up on the Colorado Springs-Monument border, I’ve looked up and visited some of these businesses thanks to this list, but I’d like to be able to quickly find what’s near me. Although I have and will drive 30 minutes for good food!

    Perfect Choice Auto Detail is a black-owned auto detail service that comes to your home or work and they do an amazing job. The owner, Jamaal, answers fb messages promptly and typically gets me in within days. Highly recommend them. Before and after photos on IG and FB

    Not Just Hair is a hair salon owned by a Black woman with locations on Jet Wing and S Chelton and Peterson AFB.
