Glenn and Vicky are college sweethearts. He was raised in Gary, Indiana. She was raised in Wilmington, Delaware. They always dreamed of having the best in life. Having the best meant working hard. His career in marketing and advertising and hers in school counseling and family services gave them the opportunity to achieve a better quality of life. More importantly, they learned that having faith was the major key to moving forward successfully, especially as entrepreneurs.
For many years, they worked hard in strategic positions helping other corporations make their profits. Finally after job relocating from coast to coast, the couple decided that the move from Cerritos, CA to Baltimore, MD would be the final company move. Furthermore, families were eating more meals away from their homes. Glenn realized this fact during his burger corporation era. They decided to go into the food business. The James family kitchen was the test site and the James children Sonja, Glenn Jr. and Maxine were the official taste testers.
As a result in June 1980, Glenn and Victoria traded their attaché cases for knives and forks. The James family opened a dual operation. A fish market and seafood restaurant was officially open in Baltimore, Maryland. The fish market and the informal dining catered to the folks in West Baltimore and in the surrounding areas.
