Southlake-based Scratch Catering & Fine Foods, better known as Scratch Kitchen, is opening a location at the Woman’s Club of Fort Worth.
Scratch Kitchen will be the exclusive, on-site caterer for all Woman’s Club events and functions and will be the exclusive caterer for all non-club events such as weddings, business meetings and other functions. Scratch Kitchen has a two-year contract with the club.
“We are extremely excited to begin this new endeavor with the Woman’s Club of Fort Worth as well as obtain a presence in historic downtown Fort Worth. With the culinary needs of all the diverse clubs and departments within the club, the opportunity to grow the Scratch team and our presence in Fort Worth has never been greater. We look forward to working with the Woman’s Club to make their facility a “must-have” when clients are searching for event rental venues,” said Ted and Colby Bilsky, co-founders of Scratch Kitchen, in a statement.
Scratch Kitchen acquired the former Boulevard Eatz in Colleyville on Jan. 1 of this year and with the new Woman’s Club of Fort Worth and its Southlake headquarters location, Scratch Kitchen now has three locations in the Fort Worth area.
Scratch Kitchen has earned five-star reviews from Yelp, Google and Facebook. Those ratings led to a surprising call from ABC News this past spring. “The producer called us out of the blue because of our five-star ratings and asked our interest in catering a breakfast in Fort Worth ISD for an Emeril Lagasse/Good Morning America event with the network,” says Ted Bilsky. “We arrived with food on-site at 4 a.m. and fed 500 school teachers, students and Good Morning America staffers. The most important guest to us was Emeril himself. He looked me in the eye and said we had done it right. Then he gave me the highest praise: ‘Bam!’”
Founded in 1923 by 11 study clubs, the Woman’s Club of Fort Worth consists of over 1,300 members and 50 clubs and departments with the purpose of “the cultural and civic advancement of our community and the promotion of the study of literature, history, science, painting, music and other fine arts.” The club is located at 1316 Pennsylvania Ave.
