Our Story: A Culinary Journey of Resilience and Success

In December 2015, Chef Kendall Curry embarked on his entrepreneurial journey, realizing his dream by founding Chef Curry To Go. The journey continued in 2016 when Chef Curry expanded his venture, opening Chef Curry To Go Restaurant at Grand and Western in OKC. The restaurant offered a delectable array of soups, sandwiches, pasta, burgers, occasional lunch specials, as well as meal prep and catering services.


In 2019, a change in building management prompted Chef Curry's strategic relocation to his current culinary kitchen. However, the following year brought unexpected challenges with the onset of Covid-19, leading to restaurant closures. Undeterred, Chef Curry and his wife navigated these trying times by shifting their focus to meal prep, delivering culinary meals directly to people's homes.


As circumstances shifted and restaurants gradually reopened, Chef and his wife decided to pivot from the traditional restaurant model to focus on meal prep and catering. This decision proved to be transformative, marking the beginning of their success in catering and meal prep services.


Beyond culinary endeavors, Chef Curry is deeply committed to giving back to the community. Actively contributing to various charities throughout Oklahoma City, donating private dinners for auction items and playing a vital role in the ongoing battle against hunger in Oklahoma City.
