Elizabeth Adams, owner of Uniquely Yours Catering, has been actively involved in the food service industry over the past 29 years. Her involvement began in the early 1980’s when she was responsible for catering and over seeing operations at the San Diego Women’s Club. While doing this, she started a food business in San Diego call “No-Guilt Desserts”. This “Lite” dessert line was soon found being served and sold in restaurants, Costco, and gourmet retail food stores.

In December 1987, Elizabeth moved to beautiful Humboldt County to take a short break and spend quality time with her family. She resumed her passion for catering as the director at Abruzzi Catering in Arcata.

In 2004, the opportunity to purchase her own restaurant, Hurricane Kate’s, became a reality. While running the front of the house operations, Elizabeth continued to cater and build her clientele. Towards the end of 2011 and newly remarried, Elizabeth made the decision to sell Hurricane Kate’s so that she could concentrate solely on her passion for catering.

Elizabeth is an expert when it comes to accommodation and maintaining a budget. Her main focus is to ensure that every event is a success. Clients often report that Elizabeth is friendly, a good listener, and has the uncanny ability to address any issue when planning an event. She embraces the challenges that are unique to each event with excitement and a level head. Each event’s details motivate her to put together a perfect plan to exceed her client’s expectations each and every time.

Andy Dickey - Marketing DirectorAndy Dickey - Marketing Director

Andy Dickey, our Director of Marketing, is no stranger to Humboldt County. He moved here in 1966 with his family at the age of 9, so that his father could run his family business known as Rich Well Drilling. With the family owned business being located in his backyard, working for his father was an easy choice through out his teen years until the age of 23.

In the year 1981, a new chapter in his life began to unfold, when he made the choice to become a cabinet maker. Over the next 30 years, his business Cabinets by Andy became a leader in the cabinet making business for Humboldt County.

While dining in Hurricane Kate’s in 2009, Andy met his wife, Elizabeth Adams, owner and operator of Hurricane Kate’s. When they decided to marry, they knew that running two businesses would not allow for ample quality time together. In the Winter of 2011, Andy retired from Cabinets by Andy to allow his children to run it, and Elizabeth sold Hurricane Kate’s.

Finding that they have an excellent working relationship, they joined forces to actively pursue now both of theirs’ passion for Catering. Andy’s passion for Marketing, has become a natural fit for Uniquely Yours Catering. Andy is mindful of those around him and goes above and beyond to ensure that proper training, professional development, and the best practices are the top priority at Uniquely Yours Catering.
