Phoenix -- Paula Deen is working on a new business venture.
Less than a year after she lost a TV contract and many of her sponsors after a racial slur controversy, the celebrity chef is launching a new business with the help of Phoenix-based Najafi Media.
The new company will launch new restaurants and cookbooks.
Deen also recently opened her new retail headquarters in the Buffalo area. The Paula Deen Store opened on Main Street in Clarence Saturday.
