MORRIS – The Grundy County Chamber of Commerce and Industry welcomes Nan’s Catering & Home Cooking to the Chamber. The Morris catering business is owned by Annie Barrins who started her business with the hope of keeping family dinners alive.

“My earliest memories were built around the dinner table with my parents and three brothers telling stories, laughing and spending quality time together over a delicious, homemade meal,” Barrins said. “Today, families are stretched even thinner with more after-school activities, later work days and conflicting schedules – all making mealtime as a family difficult. I began offering take & bakes in an attempt to take the stress and mess away from mealtime and refocus it on what’s important – time spent with family. This is where the ‘Home Cooking’ aspect came into Nan’s Catering & Home Cooking. I wanted to offer variations on the meals I grew up eating.”

Nan’s has been open for two years and specializes in take & bakes, lunchbox specials, business events and celebrations of all types. Orders can be placed via email at annie.barrins@gmail.com.

A menu and information can be found at nanscateringmorris.com.

“In Annie’s two years operating Nan’s Catering & Home Cooking she has more than made her mark in the community. She prepares delicious food in a professional manner and we look forward to working with her,” Chamber Executive Director Christina Van Yperen said.

Nan’s is proud to be voted Best Caterer in Greater Grundy County by the Morris Herald-News’ Readers’ Choice Awards.

Visitors are encouraged to try Nan’s cooking themselves and can sign up for take & bake email updates at www.nanscateringmorris.com for the offering of the week. Nan’s also offers free delivery to Morris locations.

“I would be honored to cook for your friends and family,” Barrins said.
