Kathy Buckson has been “Catering To You” for 20 years

Kathy BA favor for a friend sparked Kathy Buckson’s entrance into the catering industry roughly 20 years ago. Kathy was catering a friend’s wedding at the Lake Forest Yacht Club when the manager asked her if she would be interested in catering other weddings and private events. She gave it some consideration and shortly after that became the exclusive caterer for the club. In 1993, she rented the front portion of her present location and set up a catering kitchen. While she was busy prepping for jobs, quite often people would pop in and ask if she was open to the public. That was inspiration enough for Kathy’s husband to present her with a meat slicer and the suggestion that she entertain the idea of offering lunch. The very next week she opened her kitchen to the public and started doing just that! Kathy’s small business, CATERING TO YOU, soon grew and when more space in the building became available, she expanded and added tables and chairs to provide her customers with a larger dining area. Kathy gives credit to her mother for instilling her love for cooking. “She made everything fun – nothing was a chore. She was a wonderful entertainer and everything she prepared always looked nice.” remembers Buckson. Kathy’s signature chicken salad is her mother’s recipe. Catering To You presents a menu of sixteen specialty sandwiches that include a club, reuben, turkey & cranberry, muffaletta, tuna melt. You can also design your own deli sandwich from a list of meats and cheeses served on your choice of bread – white, wheat, rye, pumpernickle or croissant. Meal size salads featured are the Greek Salad, Chef’s Salad or a Triple Salad Plate with your choice of chicken or tuna salad and two sides. A fresh soup, a hot lunch special and tempting desserts are also daily options. Catering To You is open Monday through Friday from 11am until 2pm. If you are in a rush, just phone your order in the staff will have it ready for you at your convenience. The facility is also available by reservation for private functions on weekends, afternoons or evenings. Catering To You, 28623 North Main Street, Daphne (251) 626-1744 • Facebook “Catering To You”
