A Conversation with Karen Shelton

Simply Done Catering’s Karen Shelton has learned the recipe for success. Actually, she may have written it. With a degree in English and journalism from the University of Tennessee Martin and several years of corporate and freelance writing experience, Karen Shelton understands the importance of communication.

Stumbling into the catering business after responding to a friend’s request to help cater a party, she soon found herself in a new business. Since 2011, Shelton and her team have combined great food, customer service, hard work, and a very cool location to help get the word out: Simply Done Catering is the place to go for great catering. Located in the old Presbyterian Church on Walnut Street, Simply Done also provides a wonderful event space for special occasions. With a staff of 19, Shelton also has enlisted her family to help on occasion.

The caterer has been recognized by several groups and organizations for both their excellent product and their business success: Nominated in 2022 as Entrepreneur of the Year by the Collierville Chamber, Simply Done has also been voted as Best Caterer by the Collierville Herald and Memphis Most.
