Robins Financial Credit Union employee Tyler Taliaferro has recently attracted attention for hosting a popular pop-up “restaurant” in middle Georgia, according to a Macon Telegraph article.
Below is an excerpt from that article:
By day, Tyler Taliaferro works at a local bank.
But at night and on his free time, he’s busy in his kitchen, perfecting recipes and planning the next big meal.
The Warner Robins man is the brains behind Thymely Dishes, a Middle Georgia pop-up “restaurant” that offers dishes about once a month. Taliaferro releases the menu, takes orders and delivers the meals to various locations in Middle Georgia. He’s already cooked for Geico employees.
It all started when he invited some friends over for dinner at his house.
‘I think I made shrimp and grits,’ Taliaferro said. ‘They were like, ‘What are you doing at the credit union? You should figure that out because you should be cooking somewhere.”
From there, Taliaferro began taking orders from co-workers at Robins Financial Credit Union on Russell Parkway last year. Then, he expanded and delivered meals to a few more branches nearby.
He launched his own pop-up by early 2019.To read the full Macon Telegraph article, click here.
