Owner, William Foshee began to make his mark in the food and service industry at a young age and has been striving to share his passion for the business ever since. At just 15 years old, he worked at his parent's restaurant on Lake Sinclair. He later moved on to work at several other local restaurants, became the Catering Director for Museum of Aviation, started his own catering company, worked as a chef for the Golf Club at Cuscowilla on Lake Oconee, and then ventured up to Roswell, GA where he became the Chef de Cuisine for a well renowned catering company, Talk of the Town. Life eventually led William back to good ole Macon, Ga where he worked with Kudzu Catering for a couple of years before finally assuming ownership in August. William has been very fortunate to experience a smooth transition thus far with the support of previous owners of Kudzu Catering, Lee Clack and Kelley Wrigley, and is thrilled to announce the company’s new name as Cast Iron Catering!
William’s passion in cooking is his remarkable barbeque and southern-style tapas, though he prides himself on offering a wide variety of exciting food items and recipes for his clients to enjoy.
William Foshee assumed ownership of Kudzu Catering in August, 2017. Although he may be a new business owner, he certainly isn’t new to the service industry.
