Grade-A Catering was founded in 1990, and Averitt was one of its first customers.

Today, Grade-A continues to cater lunch each week to new Averitt associates as they attend orientation at Averitt’s offices in the Food Lion complex on Spring Street. Grade-A also provides meals for many other Averitt events.
In addition to providing high-quality food to customers throughout the Upper Cumberland for 28 years, Casey has been honored during her career as a recipient of the Small Business Women’s Award and the Better Business Bureau Torch Award.
