Hello. I am Katie Pritchett.
I was born into the restaurant industry following the successes of my families restaurants growing up. Learning the skill sets I would need to one day run my own business. I branched out on my own to start my restaurant in 2008 opening Katies Cafe and successfully ran it for 10 years. At that point I knew there was a need for an exceptional caterer in the wedding and event industry. Someone who knew how to make tasty food, but also someone who knew what was missing. The wow factor. So in 2018 I took a leap of faith and sold it all to doing catering only and kissing the restaurant goodbye. The overwhelming response we got was unbelievable. Our first year out of the gate we completed over 60 weddings. The next year we completed over 100. We knew we had created a product and brand that people want to be a part of. We don’t just provide food…we bring the elegance and class that every event is deserving of. I love to make people feel like the star and that their event is the best that their guests have been to. Too many times I have heard that “nobody remembers the food at a wedding”…it was to time to change that. That’s when we introduced our displayed catering and charcuterie boards. We are proud to say that we are the ONLY catering company in the Kansas City and surrounding areas that not only offers the beautiful grazing table for your cocktail hour but we also include free premium plastic dinnerware and flatware. Having a large family I know what it means to pinch every penny and make sure you are getting your dollars worth. It is my goal to make sure that when you book our catering that you are not only going to get the best products out there but it is also going to be financially satisfying as well.
