Thrive Catering Team comprises of many talented chefs and servers executing menus of variety and excellence and delivering elevated service.
Chef Wendy Armstrong, owner of Thrive Catering, grew up in the verdant green mountains of Vermont, and was fortunate to come to Savannah with an art scholarship to SCAD. However she soon found her artistic passions leaning towards the culinary side. She became a chef on private yachts, and travelled for 14 years learning much about different national cuisines. She took further classes at the CIA in New York, in Florence, Italy, and in Mexico. She also took an interlude as a chef at a resort ranch in Jackson Hole, WY, just for fun. Feeling strongly about nature and authentic nourishing food, Wendy brought back her learning to her home in Savannah, and started Thrive Catering, working with local farms, and using eco-friendly methods in all of its business practices. The positive response from the community has been very rewarding.
