Kassie Purpura

Meet Kassie, the founder and mama of Catering with a Twist. Aside from her three puppies (and Mr. CWAT, James), Catering with a Twist is Kassie’s baby. Born and raised in Corpus Christi, Kassie departed the state to live in the sunny states of Hawaii and Florida. After falling for Mr. Catering with a Twist in Florida, Texas was calling their names, so back to Texas they went, heading towards the funkiest town around.

Kassie believes life is way too short to live life like everyone else. To her, being different is the only way to live life, and normal is, well, boring. Covered in brightly colored tattoos and sporting an alternating color palette Mohawk, Kassie isn’t marked by one ounce of “ordinary.” In the words of John Lennon, and what happens to be one of Kassie’s favorite quotes, “Its weird to not be weird.”

When Kassie isn’t kicking ass and taking names at the CWAT office, you can find her drinking iced coffee on her back patio, running with her puppies, nibbling on Reeses pieces, staring at the stars, trying new foods, researching new tattoo ideas, or one of her personal favorites, sipping on a glass of Pinot Grigio. As any owner of a catering company, food is an important part of Kassie’s life. She is on a quest to find the best taco in Austin, but she wouldn’t dare turn away her favorite meal of a filet, asparagus and a sautéed Portobello mushroom. While she may think the one word that describes her best is “CAH-razy,” everyone else on the CWAT team thinks otherwise. They think more along the lines of, badass.
