Chef Express was founded in March of 2015 by Mr.  Terence Locke in Chattanooga, TN. The young chef established his catering business with the purpose of fulfilling the public’s desire for quality food  and excellent customer service. But not only did Mr. Locke want to offer great food, he also had a desire to impact the community.
Chef Express has grown expeditiously with extending their business by adding Bartending services to the list ,with a wide range of Offering packages . In addition , Terence is director/operator of the company’s program “ Pots and Tots”. The program teaches children ages 8 – 12 home economics while implementing reading,  writing, and math.  In late 2019, Terence released his first illustrated children’s book titled “ Daddy, What You Cooking?” This children’s book highlights an African American father bonding with his son through culinary arts while being an outstanding husband and father to his three children.  
Chef Express recently won BEST CATERER during the Inaugural Black Excellence of Chattanooga Awards Show. Accepting the award humbly and gratefully, Chef Express strives for excellence.  2021 of March, we launched our first mobile food truck. Serving American style cuisine and various entrees, check us out.
Terence often states “We keep God first because it is He who spreads his blessings through our business. Being a full time entrepreneur isn’t easy, so I often refer to JAMES 2 – 14:26 “keep faith because faith without work is dead.” We give every event the best of us and you won’t be disappointed.”
