Kennedy Cotton

Say hello to Kennedy, Executive Chef for Heritage. When Kennedy first joined our team, he was juggling 3 jobs at a local coffee shop, restaurant and Heritage. To say this guy is a hard worker is an understatement. He accepts challenges and curve balls head on. Kennedy has a willingness to learn and a genuine passion for food. He handles stress and high volume cooking with grace. I’m grateful to have Kennedy on the Heritage team. He’s responsible for all the tasty treats coming out of the kitchen, so keep those orders coming!

The Heritage Team did an outstanding job!

“Heritage Catering catered my daughter’s wedding and the food was fabulous! The only 2 requirements my daughter had was that the food was good and the flowers beautiful. Heritage nailed the food! We have had more than one guest tell us that this was the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding. We will use them again!”
