Virginia & Co. NC Black- and Women-Owned Catering Company
Executive Chef Natelege started Virginia & Co. as a way to heal. Getting back into the kitchen and producing incredible food was just the start of her catering business. She began cooking in the kitchen at a young age with her mother, grandmother and great aunts. These incredible women worked in the kitchen together to serve their families and often referred to their kitchens as sanctuaries.
With several wedding food services offered, make your special day custom to your liking! Virginia & Co. wants to make your day feel like how you normally celebrate with friends and loved ones! Carving stations, buffet style, plated dinner or family style are just a few of the styles you can choose from. Her signature, elevated soul food is on the catering menu regularly. But with her talents and experience, Chef Natelege is confident preparing any kind of cuisine.

What Virginia & Co. Customers Are Saying
“Virginia & Co is a class act, in every way! We have been blessed to indulge in their delicious food both at a wedding and in our home. The presentation of the food for events is unmatched- unique design and a guaranteed wonderful taste. After bringing our second baby home, several friends opted to use Virginia & Co.’s no-contact meal delivery option for our meal train. The menu offers a wonderful variety of delectable, nutritious meals. There is truly something listed for every type of appetite and dietary preference. No matter what we have tasted from this company, each meal has been equally satisfying, filling, convenient and delicious. The no-contact meals yield plenty of leftovers, which is a blessing for families who are going through a time of transition (grief, new baby, etc.). We give Virginia & Co. five stars!” -Simone Griffin
