AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

A longtime Augusta catering business and cafe has announced it will be closing.

The owner of Very Vera posted this message on her blog to accompany the announcement:

Dear Friends,

After 30 years in the Catering/Event business, 20 years in Mail Order and 10 years of Cooking Camp for children, I am excited to announce the next chapter in my career. At the end of June the mail order business and café/retail operation at 3113 Washington Road will be closed. VeryVera will be open in July for Cooking Camp and to sell any remaining inventory but the Café and Retail operation will cease on June 28th.

I will now be focusing on The VeryVera Cookbook that will share with each of you some of the recipes that you've come to love – delicious Southern-style cakes, casseroles and favorites from the Café. We're looking for a suitable location for our Summer Cooking Camp and a possible re-opening of our vintage style Café and retail store in 2014. I'm also having so much fun with The VeryVera Show on NBC26 and hope that many of you will have access to that show before long. I'm so proud of the accomplishments of VeryVera and hope that as I prepare for the next steps in my journey, our traditions will continue from your oven instead of mine…so wish me luck as I prepare the book that will become your go-to favorite.

I hope that you will plan to make room in your freezer this month to put a few of your favorite VeryVera treats allowing you to celebrate with us throughout the rest of this year. Thanksgiving without Carrot Cake or Pumpkin Spice? Christmas without Red Velvet? Think ahead and STOCK UP, including a few of our delicious casseroles. And remember…the taste you will never forget can be as close as your freezer!

Thanks for many, many years of great TASTE together. I so look forward to spending quality time with my husband, children and grandchildren.

With very warm wishes,

Vera
