Tell us about yourself
Started five years ago, and I have spent 20 years in restaurant life. Wanted a better balance after having kids. Starting doing private events and catering. Several clients started asking for meal plates; I’ve been growing that side of the business. I love taking care of people, and knowing I’m serving a very high-quality product has been the biggest reason for our continued growth.

Creating a company and a brand that means something to a lot of people and continues to grow.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
Spotty paychecks, no health insurance, and stress from employees.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- If you’re going to do it, really do it.
- Don’t get discouraged.
- Stay focused on your goals.
