Local Dallas Entrepreneur turns to Government Contracting to save her business. 
Chef Tonne Khabir has been on the forefront of the Dallas catering scene since 1993, however in early 2009 she realized her lifelong dream of a successful entrepreneur was at stake. In this rocky economy she was also was hit with a separation of her business partner and former husband compounded by a landlord that refuse to renegotiate the lease on her 6000 sqaure foot loft space. She lost clients like Cap Gemini. Southwest Airlines and the list goes one, no one seemed to be in a celebratory mood or feeling like hosting parties; however after talking to her younger soldier brother, he gave her some solid advice, try government contracting.
