Hi, my name is Kathryn Jenkins but friends and family know me as Kat. I am the Chief Conceptualiser behind KATs Inc -a local, family owned and operated business that delivers retail and grocery items to residential and commercial clients in Birmingham.
I consider myself a naturally caring person which inspired me to pursue a career in nursing. I earned my Master’s Degree in Nursing from Columbia University in New York and dedicated years of service to the nursing profession. Sadly, I had to go into early retirement due to a diagnosis of Scleroderma – an autoimmune disability.
The idea for a grocery delivery service was birthed from my inability to shop for groceries for myself. I envisioned a service that would be useful to individuals like me who were unable to do their grocery shopping for one reason or another. Thankfully, I shared my idea with my son, Maurice Mercer, before I went home to be with the Lord. Little did I know that he would take on the immense responsibility to turn my vision into reality.
In 2014, KATs Inc was launched -delivering groceries to residential customers. And in 2015, the company expanded its services to include commercial food delivery. And in 2018, On-demand food delivery service. The hard work of KATs has not gone unnoticed. The company has been featured as Alabaster Business of the Month, featured in Birmingham Parent and the July 2017 issue of Shelby Living Magazine. KATs was also a nominated for small business of the year by the Greater Shelby Chamber of Commerce in 2017 & 2018.
Maurice understood how passionate I was about caring for others and I couldn’t be more pleased that KATs is established on the core values of respect, compassion and reliability. I’m very proud of my son and his team of established professionals who help individuals and businesses. We are customer focused business whose primary goal is to exceed expectations. I am confident you'll be happy working with KATs. Check out the rest of our website. And if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact us. We hope to see you soon and often!
