This feature is going to be a bit different from my others as this local business Katered by Kelly is not only an awesome presence in this town but they are also one of the key supporters in a lot of our local fundraisers.
Kelly has been in the catering business for 22 years and her daughter Sam has been right by her side since she was 10 years old.
Back in 2010 in addition to their successful catering business, they opened up Kelly’s Korner restaurant located at the corner of county road 109 and 25. This popular spot for breakfast and lunch options ran until 2016 when Kelly and Sam made the difficult decision to just focus on the catering side of the business.
They loved interacting with their regular customers at the restaurant and to this day tear up talking about how much they miss getting to see them on a regular basis but the day to day needs of running a restaurant and staffing took a toll.
Kelly and Sam said they are now able to take a family vacation together which was not possible while the restaurant was running. Although I miss being able to get their food on a regular basis I am glad they have some family time back!
Katered by Kelly offers traditional home-cooked meals and baked goods to suit all of your catering needs. Whether you want to order a quick meal to pick up for your family dinner or find a caterer for your wedding/event these ladies will not disappoint (they are fully booked for weddings on weekends this summer and are now booking into 2021).
You won’t find a big online presence for this business but trust me when I say that it is one of the area’s best-kept secrets, I wouldn’t be surprised if all of their customers come from word of mouth referrals.
In addition to their amazing food, these ladies are one of if not the biggest supporter of local fundraising initiatives.
Whether it be minor sports, splash pad, Lions club…….you name it these ladies have put their time, energy and resources into helping this town. I swear you can taste the love they have for this community in their food.
Thank you, Kelly and Sam, for your time, efforts and enthusiasm. Our small town and its residents are better because of it!
