Plate it Up! Catering

Plate it Up! Catering is owned by the multifaceted Felicia Grady, who is an executive chef, business owner and restaurant consultant. In 2012, after graduating from The Chef Academy, she began her journey as an entrepreneur by opening her own catering business, Plate it Up!

Grady worked as a kitchen manager for Indianapolis Public School #49 for four years and then went on to become a culinary instructor at Second Helpings. Her experience in this industry led her to become director of food service for Bridges of Hope Rehabilitation Facility in Anderson, IN, and has earned her memberships with several organizations, such as the Indy Chambers, Better Business Bureau of Indiana, Black Business Matters, Junior Achievement and Center for Leadership Development.

She also received the 2021 Chef of the Year Award from the American Culinary Federation Association.

Grady is not afraid of some good competition. She has participated in the City Market Gumbo Competition, Girl Scout Cookie Cook-Off Competition and the Girl Scout’s annual S’mores on the Circle, where she was recognized as the Top Chef in Indiana.

She also offers cooking classes for adults and youth.
