In 1990, Kathy Norris began a small custom cake business out of her home kitchen. Over the next several years, this small business blossomed into Kathy & Company, known throughout the Upstate for wedding and specialty cakes with amazing-tasting flavors and breathtaking designs.
Thirty years later, in 2020, Kathy decided to retire in order to spend more time with her family. At precisely the right time, Kathy met Allessa Danino, a recent culinary and business graduate of Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island. Allessa soon assumed ownership of the business and will be running Kathy & Company Featuring Allessa using Kathy’s time-tested recipes that customers have raved about for years.
Allessa is excited to propel Kathy & Company into the future and carry on the brand’s tradition of excellence and quality, while offering the same renowned customer service. Allessa's vision is to continue Kathy's thirty-year legacy and well known reputation in the Upstate area. With her amazing recipes, she wants to continue to wow the customers while advancing the company to the next level. Allessa is so grateful for finding Kathy and looks forward to carrying on her traditions.
