Meet Nolan and Asia Cook of Cooks Catering in Pittsburgh

Today we’d like to introduce you to Nolan and Asia Cook.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Nolan and Asia. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
God! Our faith has carried us through our journey, we are currently along a path that God has been shining his light on. In 2016, we were blessed with an idea that was birthed three months later. Our chef, Nolan Cook, has been passionate about cooking since he was a child. In his grandmother’s kitchen he would sit on the countertop and watch cooking magic happen. He knew at a young age that being a chef was his calling. As for me, I always had a passion for all things that required leadership. I love being the person who leads the pack because I know the importance of trust, guidance, and genuinely being a team player. I have worked in management and when God showed me that we had two key elements to run our business in 2018, I signed up and never looked back. I know you’re probably wondering how can that be if the business started in 2016? Well, what God has taught us is simple, two minds are better than one. He showed us that in order for our business to flourish it needed both people to see the vision and believe in it. Once that happened, our baby began to grow beautifully!

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Our road has been filled with obstacles! But we have learned that if you find the GOD (good) in every situation that you face, you will learn to grow each time! We struggled with finding our footing in this food industry, and learning that our brand is pure and it truly does set us apart.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
Being the head Chef of our company, my favorite memory as a child. Would have to be sitting in the kitchen with my grandmother watching her cook. She would sit me right up on the counter, while she prepared endless meals for our large family days in and days out. That is what inspired me to be who I am today.
