Karen Chapman

Klassic Katering began as a dream for owner Karen Chapman over 17 years
ago. As a teacher, social worker, school administrator, full-time mom,
and the wife of a cancer patient, it was time for a change.

Living in the south, BBQ seemed like the natural choice for a startup caterer, and
so the fulfillment of her dream began. With a backyard BBQ grill in the
trunk of the car, the success of selling KC’s famous pulled-pork
sandwiches up and down I-10 came at the rate of less than $10.00 a day.

Soon after an attorney friend asked Karen to cater one of
Tallahassee’s premier events for more than 200 people, life changed.
Over night KC’s BBQ transformed into what is now known as Klassic

Our specialty is creating custom menus of all styles to suit
each client’s taste. From the freshest seafood to the finest aged beef
to the continuation of smoking our own meat, Klassic Katering does it

Now, years later, Klassic Katering is honored to still cater that same
event along with several hundred other events each year. The Klassic
Katering team now includes an event coordinator, marketing and public
relations professional, kitchen manager, chef, sous chef, bartenders and
over 20 banquet staff members.

While our beginnings were humble, Karen’s vision has always been
grand. Now, she gets to deliver her unique grand vision to each and
every plate we serve!

Proudly serving Tallahassee, The Panhandle & Coast, and Southern Georgia.
