In 1991, what used to be a chore turned into a hobby. That hobby became an at-home business. And now that at-home business has grown into almost 20 years of serving the Madison & Nashville areas.
As a high school graduate, Carolyn Buggs moved to Nashville to attend Tennessee State University with aspirations of becoming a teacher. With her final year of school approaching, she was a offered a job opportunity with what is now Vought Industries; one she could not afford to turn down. Some years later, a mass layoff forced her off the job and back into the kitchen, where she started as a child.
For nearly 6 years she catered lunch daily, to her former coworkers and auto dealers in the Nashville area. As this business continued to grow, she and her husband Leon decided it was time to cater to the masses. In 1997, Cal's (Carolyn and Leon's) Country Kitchen was born.
Today, 17 years later, we are still family owned and operated. On any given day, you can still find Carolyn in the kitchen cooking away. It has been a true blessing to be able to do what we love and have people enjoy it!
