According to the Small Business Association, 30% of new businesses fail within the first year!
With that being said, in the competitive Central Florida catering market, Two Chicks and A Pot turning 10 this year is HUGE NEWS!
We are a woman-owned business with our founders Beth and Laura coming from a corporate food background.
Beth grew up where everything came from local farms; fresh meats and vegetables were in abundance and everything was scratch made. It really set the tone for things to come.
Laura had worked with Beth at Sysco and brought her restaurant experience to Two Chicks and A Pot on weekends and events. Laura is still actively involved in the company and is here during the winter, spending summers in Bar Harbor Maine where she operates Mainely Meat BBQ.
During those early years, our first location was in Cocoa Village, a space shared with a bakery. Both businesses had the same beliefs around food with the bakery producing gluten-free and vegan baked goods when no one else offered them. Beth, Laura, and Cynthia are still great friends ten years later.
Their children, friends, and people from church helped as catering staff in the beginning, but things are very different now with our current 40-50 staff during peak season.
At our first bridal show, we met a fantastic couple, Sabrina and Mike. We did not have a place to do tastings at the time so we did the tasting in their home and then we went on to cater their wedding. They actually became our landlord offering us a space with storage, a production area, a meeting space and a newly renovated tasting room.
We have grown our team and expanded our offices from our Rockledge office to include spaces in Vero Beach and Orlando that allows us to serve the Space Coast and west to Orlando.
We could not be more proud of our Two Chicks and A Pot family and how far things have come in the last ten years.
We cannot wait to see what the next ten years have in store!
