Mississippi Home-grown & Woman-owned

In 2005, inspired by her mother and family, Karen Kurr began preparing, freezing, and selling her Cajun and Southern dishes at local Mississippi farmers markets. Today, you will find her dishes in over 600 freezers including Kroger, Walmart, and independent retailers.

Though initially launching the business from her Oxford home kitchen, Karen soon added on a commercial kitchen and hired friends to help. Operations quickly overtook bedrooms, her husband’s study, the family sun room, and their two car garage. As the hobby became a business, Karen moved production to a USDA food plant allowing wholesale to grocery stores and food service distributors. Today, customers can order direct through the online store and or even have weekday lunches catered through No Time 2 Cook’s Corporate Catering Service.

From Karen’s Chicken Pie to her mama’s Chicken and Dressing, each No Time 2 Cook product is cooked from scratch using whole food ingredients. Karen is passionate about food, entrepreneurship, and bringing families back to the dinner table. When Karen isn’t cooking, she is sharing her passion with others.
