A busy mom's bright idea

Jess Williamson is like many moms ... busy! 

Always rushing around, Jess found herself relying on frozen pizzas and drive-thru more often than she cared to admit.

While standing in line at a take-and-bake pizza place, she got a bright idea: To deliver oven-ready casseroles and family-sized meals for people to enjoy at home, without hassle or guilt.

After years of thinking about it and sketching business plans on the backs of her grocery lists, Jess launched Cream City Casseroles in early 2015. What started out as a resource for busy families and professionals has evolved to include gift deliveries.

"On any given week, nearly half of our meals are given as gifts," says Jess. "Gift recipients include parent of newborns, the elderly and people coping with illness, injury or loss. It's so rewarding knowing we're helping people in this special way."
