BEDFORD COUNTY, Va. – A set of siblings is serving up a family affair.

“It just makes more sense just to do it with the family because we’re doing this for the family,” said Cjay Jones.

Cjay Jones and his sisters, Barbara Mays and Angela Jones, opened their pair of unlikely businesses under one roof.

It’s called Hair Wear Beauty Supply Shop – Soul Food Carry-out.

“My sisters have a passion for hair, and I have a passion for cooking,” said Cjay.

They opened the hair supply shop in November, then opened the restaurant last month.

Barbara and Angela said they’re proud to bring their black-owned businesses to Bedford County. They wanted to see their grandmothers’ vision come to fruition.

“They had a passion to open up something, but never had the means to do it. So, when the opportunity came for us to do it, we wanted to carry on that legacy,” said Barbara.
