BuzzCatz Coffee & Sweets is proud to announce that Juanita Hendrix, one of their managers, will be competing in the World Food Championships November 14 through November 18 at The Wharf in Orange Beach with a chance to win a $300,000 prize purse and the title. BuzzCatz’ team is one of about 500 from across the world who will be seeking the ultimate food crown. Hendrix earned her spot with her Southern Fried Dog: a Nathan hot dog wrapped in Conecuh Bacon with ButterKase cheese, sauteed jalapeno, onions, garlic and fried green tomatoes, topped with Wild Bill's Sauce. “I am very proud to be representing BuzzCatz Coffee & Sweets in this renowned competition,” stated Juanita Hendrix. “I am so thankful for the love and support I have received from my team members and the creativity I am allowed to experience in my job.”
Local chef Kimberly Asbury, pastry chef and manager at BuzzCatz Coffee & Sweets, was awarded the Grand Champion title at the eighth Annual International Biscuit Festival in Knoxville, Tennessee on Saturday, May 20. Her Alabama Scotch Egg Biscuit, which launched her to victory in the Special Category Competition and the Grand Prize, is now world famous. The Annual International Biscuit Festival draws thousands of people from around the country to downtown Knoxville for a chance to experience one of the most diverse and celebrated collections of biscuit bakers in the country. There are four categories of competition: Sweet Biscuits, Savory Biscuits, Special Biscuits and Student Biscuits. The Special category is for those biscuits that are over the top and incredibly imaginative. “I am humbled and very proud to have won my first competition,” stated Kimberly Asbury. “I am so thankful for the love and support I have received from my staff and the creativity I am allowed to experience in my job.” You can enjoy Asbury’s Alabama Scotch Egg, a buttermilk biscuit stuffed with hickory smoked Conecuh Sausage and a soft boiled egg topped with red onion jam, every Saturday and Sunday at BuzzCatz Coffee & Sweets on Canal Road in Orange Beach.
