BUSINESS OVERVIEW

Sarah Hooper and her business partner, Amanda Varnell, launched their catering company and cooking school in 2012 on a foundation of their shared “love for all things food.” The business quickly came to be known and loved in the community for fresh, made-from-scratch, delicious catering for events big and small. Sarah and Amanda’s hard work paid off in 2016 when the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Congress awarded Dish T’Pass an annual small business award, just weeks after the business first hit the $1 million revenues mark.

ALL ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS

“Sarah and I are all about relationships. The ability to form relationships with our clients and other small business continues to propel us.” says Amanda.
