The African American Chamber of Commerce of Wisconsin is a vital part of the ongoing economic engine here in the great state of Wisconsin. Your membership with the Chamber provides unparalleled opportunities to connect with peers, current and prospective clients and partners up and down the supply chain.

Further, the programs and events we present provide extraordinary opportunities to grow needed networks and gain new insights to address the ever-changing challenges facing all of us in business today.

In Milwaukee WI, November 2013, Rod Leflore started WingMan’s with a vision to be innovative with ways to influence his community through something that brings joy to all, amazing food and delivering great service to everyone!

Coming from a big family of cooks, caterers, and chefs, the culinary industry was a natural field for Rod to find success in. However, he defines success by having the support of the community and being a positive influence to create avenues for others by utilizing the tools god blessed him with.

Now in his 5th year of business, WingMan’s is a reputable food and catering business affectionately known for having the best tasting wings, one of a kind seasonings and flavors with unique hand-made sauces and a wide variety of catering options!
