Brenda Barrett- CEO
It started with an Easy Bake Oven when she was 5 years old. Brenda Barrett was raised in a family of talented women, her mother, Martha Stewart and Betty Crocker's "Love Child" and her aunt, who instilled in her a love for catering and baking at an early age.
Brenda Barrett, now CEO of Asante Catering, has been a pillar in the community of Sacramento for the last 30 years. She started with a vision of a catering company that was formed with three things in mind: Great Food, Excellent Service, and Satisfied Clients.
Fast forward to 2015 when the concept "Asante Fresh Express" was born. After years of loyal and valued clients, asking for a place to come and purchase signature items such as our Grilled Vegetables, "Family Recipe" Raspberry Vinaigrette, & our Mesquite Grilled Tri-Tip the opportunity for an expansion was brought to the table. Brenda saw this new space as a blank canvas where she could bring to life, the vision she had for a community resource where local, farm to fork, meals would offer healthier lunch and dinner options.
Asante Fresh Express is about partnership, bringing together everything local the Sacramento Valley has to offer to the long time, loyal patrons of Asante Catering. It is a place where you can come for lunch, pick up a delicious dinner for family, or beautiful party platters for entertaining guests. We are so grateful for this new venture and look forward to seeing you all in store soon!
