Join us for a Seat at the Table with Del'Inkka Beaudion
Del’Inkka was born in Lake Charles, LA and was raised in Alexandria, LA. Inkka, as she prefers to go by, attended Southern University, a Historically Black College or University located in Baton Rouge, LA. Inkka is married and has two beautiful daughters along with one very spoiled puppy. Inkka moved to Sioux Falls, SD with her husband in 2006. She later started a career as a communications specialist working for the South Dakota Highway Patrol in Pierre, SD. She also worked as a Financial Service Administrator in the Trust Department at a local bank. After moving back to Sioux Falls in 2013, Inkka continued her work in finance by working in Accounting at Sammons Financial. All the while, Inkka was gaining the knowledge to follow her passion of cooking and entrepreneurship. Inkka and her Mother in Law started by serving lunch in their church’s community hall along with catering. She then moved into a Food Truck and named it Swamp Daddy’s Cajun Kitchen! In January of 2018, Inkka opened Swamp Daddy’s in a more permanent location in Downtown Sioux Falls on Phillips Ave. Inkka has won several local awards for her food and entrepreneurship. Inkka was only the second African American woman to be featured on the cover of the Sioux Falls Woman’s magazine. In 2017, Swamp Daddy’s was recognized nationally by Uproxx as the best food truck in South Dakota and one of the top 50 in the country. With all of her success, Inkka continues to find ways to give back to her community through serving with Establishing Sustainable Connections and coaching youth basketball at the YMCA. Inkka’s future plans include growing her family and her business while mentoring other young entrepreneurs in the community.
Lunch for this month's Seat at the Table event will be a taco bar catered by Swamp Daddy's Cajun Kitchen.
