Using food to get results for foster children.

Using food to get results for foster children.

The restaurant owner’s experiences growing up in foster care drive him to help others.

Doug Miller is a man who appreciates what he has. He now owns three restaurants after he was able to retire early from his previous career in sales. His newest location in Central Florida just recently opened. However, his life started out far differently.

In his years since leaving foster care, cooking became a hobby, and feeding others was a way for Miller to show others how much he cares. It’s a practice he carries over into his chain of restaurants, FK Your Diet. The “FK” stands for the foster kid. Millers said he wants to make sure every customer leaves with some extra food, offering generous portions that guarantee leftovers.

But his efforts to give back extend beyond his meals. He also makes efforts to hire other people who have gone through the foster care system, along with others who might need a second chance.

Miller shares his experiences in the foster care system and how he was able to hustle, starting several businesses along the way. He also shares some of the problems he ran into with the name early on, before eventually winning people over.

FK Your Diet.


FK your diet does not means how it sounds. “FK” Actually stands for Foster Kid. As a young Foster Kid, many chefs were introduced to Miller. growing up (foster moms = chef).

“They were some of the most horrible chefs. Nine out of ten days the meals were awful! But… OH! on that tenth day the clouds would part and their inner Betty Crocker (if you are young, Betty Crocker was the original Pinterest for cooking) would emerge with vigor. The meal would be fit for a king. I spent 12 years as a traveling foster kid. Each new home had a new chef to stretch your taste buds (some good, but mostly not so much.”

Amy (Miller’s girlfriend) and Miller decided to retire to Florida at the ripe old age of 45. After taking a year and a half off, they have decided to open FK Your Diet to showcase foster kid food and give back to that community. Five percent of our revenue will be donated to foster kids. Not only will you get a great meal, but you will also be helping some children feel a little better.
