Longtime friends with a mutual vision for a new catering business, Carrie Ann & Denise formed Carrie Ann & Co., Inc. in 2002. In 2005 they purchased the Mays House and began restoration of the Craftsman-style structure that was built by D. H. Mays in 1922. To date, they have over 40 years combined experience in the food service and event planning industry.
They currently serve lunch at the Mays House Monday through Friday, offering a menu of fresh salads, sandwiches and wraps along with a daily hot special. Tuesday dinner offers a choice of different entrees that are sure to interest you. When not open for meals, The Mays House hosts special events that include Rehearsal Dinners, Birthday and Anniversary Parties, Wedding and Baby Showers, Bridal activities (engagement parties, bridal brunches, etc.), Private Dinner Parties, and Corporate Functions.
Carrie Ann and Denise are proud of their town and are both involved in the community in many ways. They and their families are members of the Monticello Opera House (Denise is also on the Board) and they also support the Opera House. They have provided the use of The Mays House and grounds for several local and regional meetings involving city or county government officials from here and other counties. They have supported several local organizations such as the Humane Society and The United Way by allowing them to utilize the Mays House and/or the grounds for fund-raising functions. Small catered events such as dinners for 2 or 4 have served as prizes in fund-raising raffles for various charitable organizations.
