Black History Month: Celebrating Biskit NV, a Black-Owned Gem from Cleveland, TN

February 28, 2024

Brief Background

Black History Month is a tribute to the diverse heritage and cultural legacy of African Americans in the United States. For over 50 years, this annual observance in February has served to commemorate the pivotal figures and events that have shaped our collective narrative.

Championing Diversity

At TVFCU, we cherish and champion diversity within our communities. We firmly believe that embracing diversity fosters a positive impact on the business landscape across Southeast Tennessee and Northwest Georgia. Black-owned businesses play a crucial role in highlighting and celebrating their culture while also contributing to community education and support.

This Black History Month, we had the privilege of spotlighting Biskit NV, a household name in Cleveland, TN. Perhaps you recognize them as the local breakfast hotspot or from their notable success as the 2023 People's Choice winner and second-place overall winner in TVFCU's Idea Leap Grant competition for the Ocoee region.

Biskit NV: A Local Legacy

Biskit NV isn't just a restaurant; it's a beacon of community and family values. Owned and operated by Natosha Versa and Yaquia Walker, Biskit NV prides itself on its culinary creations and its profound impact on the local Cleveland community. Beyond the kitchen, Natosha and Yaquia are dedicated advocates for the black community, actively participating in organizations such as the NAACP and 100 Black Men.

Their commitment extends beyond mere words; they've lent their voices to Lee University's business and black history programs and stand proudly alongside Lee University and Cleveland State Community College in the MLK Jr. Day march in downtown Cleveland. Through their unwavering dedication, Biskit NV serves as a unifying force, advocating, educating, and giving back to their community.

A Heartfelt Thanks

We are immensely proud to count businesses like Biskit NV among our esteemed partners in community building. Their commitment to uplifting and empowering their community sets a remarkable standard for all. Thank you, Biskit NV, for your unwavering dedication and for showcasing the very best of what it means to give back (and, of course, for making some pretty amazing biscuits!).
