Kitchen Witch opened in the wake of a hurricane named Katrina as our way of helping our city to rebuild. Yes, we had been open previously; my daughters and I opened in another location from 1999 to 2003. After the storm, we found a much better location, Debbie Lindsey came on as a full partner and like the home page says "We haven't bounced a check yet!"
