Madeworthy Profiles: Katrina Carpenter of Carpenter’s Cafe and Catering
Katrina Carpenter brings love into her year-old business endeavor. Her friends told her she should go into business with her delicious dishes, so last year she tiptoed in with pop-ups and operated her business out of an Airstream. February 2020 saw her soft opening in her first brick and mortar location. Then COVID hit. Thankfully, the folks at the Facebook Data Center called on her to cater for their essential services teams. Katrina says her signature dish is her famous Smoked Chicken Salad, and she hopes you’ll come to see her on the Near Southside to experience their healthy southern comfort foods.
