Only 34 years old, the Southwest Philly food mogul already owns three restaurants, one food truck serving University City, and recently launched her line of seasonings and sauces.

While Devan says she is just getting started, she admits that this success did not happen overnight.

After years of rebranding, Devan finally created the Tasties Franchise we know and love today.
