About Terrence Williams & Cousin T's:

Growing up in foster care I always dreamed about big family gatherings around the breakfast table with grandma in the kitchen cooking up a big family breakfast. As a kid I could almost smell that intoxicating aroma of those delicious hot and fluffy pancakes smothered in butter and warm maple syrup. I always told myself that one day I would make those fabulous pancakes and as an adult I have cultivated my love for cooking and my passion for food into my Cousin T's collection. It is my hope that there are many family conversations, laughs and lasting memories made as a result of families and loved ones joining together to eat Cousin T's pancakes. So quit reading and gather around the table and enjoy a good helping of American old-fashioned family values and a yummy and hearty meal because that's what Cousin T's is all about!

In 1976, Mike Zakany and his brother started a restaurant in downtown Zanesville, Ohio. After months of planning and building, Zak's Restaurant was a reality. The contemporary casual restaurant was a welcome addition to the small urban center and was quite successful from the family matriarch, helped her sons integrate more authentic Mexican cuisine into the menu and life of the restaurant.

The Zakany family has always had a rich history as entrepreneurs. Mike's paternal grandparents opened a butcher shop and grocery store in Zanesville in 1942. Mike's father, uncle and entire family worked very hard to continue to grow the family business over the years. Zak's Restaurant was a natural extension of the Zakany's involvement and love for the food business. The restaurant quickly developed a strong clientele. Clearly, people liked the "New Mexico" style food, the phenomenal increase in the "to go" food sales and the additional increase in dining room business confirmed their niche in the "New Mexico" style of food on the menu. The demand for salsa was a key part of the complete menu; salsa enhanced the flavors of all the dishes served. It then became time to develop the salsa to meet the demand. Mike started an extensive marketing study that examined all kinds of spices and chili peppers. He read with great interest about the migration patterns of the European Spaniards to Mexico and the influence America's native people had on the newcomer's cuisine.

Mike continued to work on the salsa recipes based on his research and experimentation. The restaurant customers were the critics for the salsa formulas born from Mike's hard work in the kitchen. Eventually, the "favorite" blend of spices, chili peppers and herbs were developed. These recipes came from the direct influence of his maternal grandfathers cooking culture. In 1987, José Madrid Salsa became a reality, named after the family icon and beloved grandfather from Clovis, New Mexico. Mike Zakany's tribute to his grandfather celebrates his childhood memories of the larger than life man.

Gourmet Provisions International Corporation acquired Jose Madrid Salsa in 2016.

As of today GMPR engaged the services of Rick Weiner to revise and finalize the pre audits, finish the necessary financial statements for uplisting to NASDAQ and potentially become our fulltime CFO. GMPR has paid M&K CPAS, PLLC of Houston, TX, their required $25,000 fee to finalize and sign off on the audits when completed.The delays in the pre audits were the result of two factors: Black Rock was suppose to supply GMPR with their financial statements by October 1st, 2021 we received the financials late January 2022 and ultimately this along with other mitigating factors lead GMPR to mutually agree to forgo the acquisition; Second attributing factor for completion of the pre audits, after partial review of the Jose Madrid Salsa Financial statements the previously engaged pre auditor determined they needed to be reconstructed and their six digit proposed fee was more than the cost of an annual salary of a fulltime CFO. Solution, we are revising the financial statements and we have engaged Mr. Weiner to complete the necessary pre audits in a timely manor.
