Businessman Max Bozeman II is a native of Houston’s north side. As the owner of The Greasy Spoon Soulfood Bistro, he is currently living out his entrepreneurial purpose and passion. From starting companies to selling them, being a venture capitalist and investor, Bozeman is consumed (and somewhat addicted) to the world of business and entrepreneurship. A product of Acres Home and Studewood, he graduated from Westfield High School and attended Texas Southern University for about three years before opening his first company. The milestone would eventually cause him to put his academic pursuits on hold, but it wouldn’t stop his dreams from unfolding in the years to come.

Since his childhood years, Bozeman has always wanted to be an entrepreneur. From ages four to 13, his desire to be a millionaire would soon blossom to wanting to reach billionaire status, a goal he still plans to obtain.


“All I knew was that I wanted to help people and be a blessing to my family and community, so I knew I had to have a lot of money to accomplish my philanthropic goals,” he says.

Bozeman’s latest venture is in the restaurant and hospitality industry, where he opened up The Greasy Spoon Soulfood Bistro in 2020. Having been awarded the Best New Restaurant in 2020 by Black Restaurant Week, The Greasy Spoon has quickly become one of Houston’s premier soulfood destinations. Bozeman said they are currently working on opening a second location.

Bozeman’s greatest achievement is being a single father to three amazing children. He has two girls and one boy- Mahari, 8, Marli, 6, and Max Christon, 23 months. The biggest highlight of fatherhood, according to Bozeman, is being able to have an impact on his children as their hero. 

During a brief Q&A session, we asked Bozeman how does he balance being an entrepreneur, father, having a personal life all while staying on top of his health… here’s what he had to say: 

“I’m blessed to live a life of freedom, to be able to be a part of every moment that matters, and create memories that will last a lifetime,” he said. Max was also in the process of battling cancer after being diagnosed in the summer of 2020. While it is a battle that has been tough, it is one that he is ultimately winning.

Bozeman’s greatest inspiration is his uncle, James Dixon II. He is also heavily inspired by his mother, who he’s seen overcome a number of challenges. Something that Bozeman lives by is “Don’t be a dreamer, be a striver. Strivers achieve what dreamers believe.”
