The Chitlin Queen:  Shauna R Anderson had a successful accounting business at the time she decided to revive the chitlin business in the early 90's. She knew that families were losing the tradition of cooking chitlins because high quality cleaned pork chitterlings were not readily available. As a seasoned business woman, Shauna was able to tackle the marketing, supply, distribution, and advertising single handedly to establish Shauna's Hand Cleaned Pork Chitterlings. She was soon selling them online across the country and now has served over two million customers. She was crowned "The Chitlin Queen" by great friend Jesse Jackson Jr  and the name has stuck. Saveur Magazine named Shauna "the" source for Chitlins.
