To Dine for With Kate Sullivan

Jim Mcingvale Philanthropist, Gallery Furniture

Season 1, Episode 4 of 10

When Jim started his mattress business in Houston, Texas he had just $ 5,000 and a pickup truck. Now, he has amassed a furniture empire through his "wacky ads" and gregarious personality. It was, however, a single act of kindness that thrust him into the international spotlight. During Hurricane Harvey, he opened the doors of all of his stores to displaced residents, earning him local adoration and international cheers. We go with Jim to his favorite Mexican restaurant, Lopez Family restaurant, to eat fajitas and hear the story of how any local businessman can make a tremendous social impact.
