We are a Suffolk based partnership. Our names are Sharyl P. Bratton and Anne G. Patterson. We were both born and raised here in Hampton Roads and attended school here. We both graduated from Nansemond-Suffolk Academy where we became best friends. Since then we have always wanted to create a catering company, but our lives have always gotten in the way. In February of 2014, we decided that it was finally time.
Anne is a retired civilian employee of the U. S. Coast Guard, and Sharyl worked at Bennett’s Creek Marina Restaurant when they first opened as 1 of 2 cooks, and most recently for the last 17 years as general manager of a Portsmouth monument company. We have joined forces to create SOUTHSIDE VIRGINIA CATERING and we are licensed by the City of Suffolk, Virginia.
