Phil Jones is a straight shooter, and his message is simple: Detroit needs new ways to make some money. Ask Mr. Jones how, and he responds with more simplicity: food. After turning abandoned land into farms, Jones turns his attention to abandoned people. At COLORS, Jones teaches unemployed locals how to be the restaurant’s cooks, hosts and servers. Now there’s a recipe for transformation.
