Kristi Dickey Co-Founder & CEO

Kristi has worked for JTJ/Keet family for 12 years in various positions. Aside from being the guru for all things IT related, she also manages various operational duties for all the JTJ/Keet restaurant concepts. During the pandemic, when everyone's focus was shifting, she and Melissa started brainstorming how to take the existing catering department to a new level, so in true-to-Kristi form, she added one more thing to her already full plate and Catering Arkansas was born! She continues to serve the company in all things IT but her biggest focus now is growing Catering Arkansas.

Melissa Atkins Co-Founder & Director

Melissa (Mel) has had many professional lives. She's an early-childhood professional-turned-fraud analyst-turned-accountant-turned novelest-turned caterer. She lucked out and was hired by the Keet family to run and grow their catering department in 2015. When the pandemic hit in 2020, she pivoted to working-from-home. During that time, she and her colleague Kristi, began to discuss taking the catering department to a whole new level, by forming a company that would simplify catering for all the JTJ/Keet restaurant concepts into one-stop shopping. And Boom! That's when Catering Arkansas was born.
