Our Story

Long story short…we went to high school together in Union County, met up again during college, fell in love & got married, started a beautiful family, & settled in for the journey. And what a fulfilling journey it has been!

Along the way, we opened The Red Radish Catering Company, an extension of a successful family-run business by the same name in Black Mountain, NC. The Red Radish has been serving up savory & sophisticated Southern cuisine here in the Charlotte area since 2004. We love to serve our fine fare to our customers who rave about menu offerings like our famous farm-fresh signature salad & temptingly tasty desserts. We truly appreciate their patronage & referrals throughout the years as we have built our business & our great reputation.

We are so thankful for the opportunity to provide service to our community & customers.  We hope that your own journey brings you to our door for one of life’s many special occasions. We would love to share your day with you & help Make it Special!

Enjoy the journey :)
