“Nicole Jordan Catering began serving clients in 2016, the same year I left a 20 year career in corporate and consulting to pursue this dream. My goal was for a long time to become an entrepreneur in the food space and I landed on doing that by starting my Catering business. From the beginning, things moved quickly with the business. From year one into year two, we tripled our revenue and have had better than 40% growth year over year since. This is significant because our business has been based 99% on word of mouth. We serve major universities and hospital systems, mid-size to large nonprofit organizations, corporate clients, the City of Chicago, as well out direct customers. We were selected in 2019 as caterer for the Chicago Jazz and Blues Fest in a highly competitive RFP process, which was our very first year applying. As a result of the current pandemic, our business has taken a hit but we are pivoting to add on a prepared meal service, Meals by Nicole, to our offering. And while this has been a challenging time for our business, we remain committed to our core values of being a company of service that caters.”
