Karen’s Journey

Karen’s love to cook started when she was a little girl growing up and would help her dad prepare a meal for her big family.  With the absence of her mother, she became one of the helping hands in the kitchen assisting her father to prepare meals. This love and passion for cooking continues to grows more and more each year. So much so that she opened a Carolina country cooking restaurant in 2006.  Karen loves to cook and provide quality meals to her customers.  

Karen’s Mobile Kitchen & Catering gives Karen the opportunity to go to a different venue and city to cook and serve food to customers.  This provides the opportunity for more people to taste the love she puts in each and every dish.  That love and passion to cook is still as strong today as it was many years ago.

Mrs. Karen and her husband saved our event…. and came through at the last minute even though they had another event scheduled for early the next morning… they brought a menu and food that all you saw and heard was heads bowed with fingers and mouths moving. She will forever be TOP on our list!!!

Karen’s Mobile Kitchen came to our neighborhood yesterday. I can’t say enough good about the service we received. Everyone loved the food and we want to have her back again! 5 stars from me!

I wish I had a picture of the delicious food that I got at the concert Sunday… But it was so good, I didn’t even think about taking a picture of it before I ate it. Karen is so professional I have complete trust in everything she serves. Fried okra, seasoned fries, chicken tenders!
