Who is Tonee?
Tonee Morton Rice‘s entrepreneurial journey began in 1994 as a graduate of Ron Thomas School of Cosmetology.  In 1997, Tonee agreed to partner-up with her father and together they built Morton Services which was a company that provided 20-, 30- and 40-yard dumpsters throughout Maryland, Washington DC and Virginia.

The dedication and commitment that was displayed led Tonee to obtain her minority certification in the areas of hauling, demolition and general contracting. Tonee and her father agreed to dissolve the company while dealing with a brief scare with cancer.

After her health and strength was regained, Tonee went back to school for business administration and early childhood education. After gaining her credentials, Ms. Rice opened a daycare facility and became her own director.  With much success and the need to continue to feed herself with knowledge, Ms. Rice returned back to school in Towson; this time in the medical field.

After obtaining her certification as a surgical dental assistant and her license as a dental radiation technologist, Tonee was offered a position that was created just for her at the School of Dentistry in downtown Baltimore City. After spending 3 years in the Special Care and Geriatrics unit of the hospital, Tonee decided to enter the realm of entrepreneurship again.

Today, Tonee M. Rice is the owner and operator of B & T’s Carryout and Convenience Store, LLC in Baltimore City.
