Six years ago, we started Yummy Goodness Catering Company. We started very small with only a few events and have been growing steadily ever since. We had to expand our kitchen twice in 2015, to accommodate the volume of food and events we are doing. We have built ourselves into a premier caterer with a great reputation in the community.
We are excited to be expanding again, opening a new cafe in downtown Norfolk in January 2017.
Our business has grown like wildfire through word of mouth.
Our goal of the Community Kitchen was born during our struggle to find kitchen space for rent. It has moved from a dream to a reality. Now we are pleased to offer other small culinary based businesses an opportunity to rent kitchen space in a certified kitchen to produce their products to sell to the public.
We are women owned and operated and have a combined 46 years of experience in the food industry.
