Kathy Katz has struck out on her own to bring her vision of prepared meals to Memphians.
After 25 years of operating 20/20 Diner at the Southern College of Optometry, Katz officially opened Cooper Street 20/20 at 800 S. Cooper in late November.
“I just decided to go out on my own and try to do this,” Katz said.
Taking over a former Muddy’s Bake Shop ancillary kitchen space, Katz provides prepared soups, sauces, entrees and side dishes for pick-up and uses local ingredients whenever possible.
In addition to running the 20/20 Diner, Katz has spent the past five years selling prepared foods at the Memphis Farmers Market, the Farmers Market at Memphis Botanic Garden and the Tsunami Farmers Market. Many of her customers from these markets will be customers in her new 1,100-square-foot space, she said.
“I have a huge following from the markets,” Katz said.
