Andrea Barclay, chef and owner of Global Gourmet, prepares food for dinner reservations on Friday, March 12, 2021 in Carbondale Ill. Barclay has been the owner for the last 17 years and said being a woman in this industry and trying to open a business wasnt the best experience. “I only had two incidents when I moved back here. I was trying to get a job in the kitchen at a chain restaurant but in the interview the manager said he would rather have me as a waitress,” Barclay said. Another incident Barclay encountered was a man at the bank insisting she used her fathers money to take out a loan. She eventually paid for the restaurant on her own without a loan.
