Goodbye from Kathy Harris

After my departure from Just Fresh in February, I have had the opportunity to help a friend get started with their catering department.

As of June 1, I will no longer be in the Charlotte area.  I am finally able to follow a dream that I have had for 2 decades – I will be moving to California to live on the beach and thrive within the restaurant industry there.

Since many of you and I go back as far as Reid’s, over 8 years ago, I wanted to leave you all in good hands – so I can be sure you’re taken care of once I leave.

The menu that follows is from a restaurant that I feel is great quality and will be to your standards – Dressler’s in the Metropolitan Midtown area. The menu was created with the finest ingredients available.  I believe this establishment will exceed any expectations, and will provide you with the highest quality and professionalism that you can ask for.

Best wishes to you all.


Kathy Q Harris
