DUFF, TN (WLAF) – If you’re looking for home style cooking for your next big event, Classy Threads and Catering is the company to call. 

Classy Threads is locally owned by Vanessa Dupuy, who has been in business coming up on her 20th year.

Dupuy and her team cater all kinds of events, from weddings to wedding rehearsals, banquets, company events and more. She makes “good, hearty, home-style cooking and plenty of it.”

Dupuy learned how to cook growing up in Campbell County on a farm. She’s said she cooked every day and has just”always loved to cook and share food with people.”

She had already been operating her sewing business Classy Threads and would often make snacks for the brides and their families during the fittings. One of the brides enjoyed her chicken salad sandwiches so much, she asked her if she could make 10 pounds of it for her wedding. Dupuy said yes and the catering part of her business was born.

Classy Threads and Catering is WLAF’s business of the week. Vanessa Dupuy has been serving up home cooked goodness for the last two decades. Dupuy, pictured at right, and helper Laklee Howard serving at last week’s Rotary lunch as Terry Bray goes through the line.

Over the last two decades, Dupuy’s business has grown and expanded “thanks to all her loyal customers and their word of mouth advertising.”

“The good Lord has blessed me so much and I appreciate the support of everyone. I like to show my love for people with food,” Dupuy said. 

She said she was thankful for her family as well and that her mother Bobbie Archer had been helping her since the beginning as well as inspiring her. 

“Good home cooked food is what I was raised on and that’s what I make; nothing fancy, just good home cooked food and plenty of it,” Dupuy said.
