Saba Business Association has awarded the “Entrepreneur of the Year 2015” to the owners
of Island Flavor restaurant Joani Child and Steve Zagers.
Joani, who moved from St. Vincent to Saba, has worked in the hospitality sector in various positions. She is well known as friendly and helpful and one of the great chefs on Saba.
Wolfgang Tooten of the Association presented the award to Child. Tooten said, “We are proud to give this award to Joani Child this year. Together with her life partner Steve Zagers, a local entrepreneur in the construction sector, they have built up from scratch a beautiful restaurant in the Bottom.
Their menu shows their commitment to healthy food choices and a large variety of local dishes and new Caribbean creations. Healthy drinks, their own little garden behind the restaurant and their professional attitude are a good example that local entrepreneurship is on the rise. They attract a colourful crowd and inspire people to meet and enjoy Saba at its fullest; her example can also help encourage young people to follow in her footsteps.”
