Debbie Conwell and Jeff Tuttle
Jeff and Lynn Tuttle, owners of Caterme Chelan have lived in the Chelan Valley since 1994. Jeff spent most of his working career as a meet cutter, a job he loved and keeps up his skill butchering wild game for hunters. Lynn has worn many hats during her career and is very excited about their new adventure.
Their Vision for Caterme Chelan is the kind of business Manson welcomes with open arms. Their restaurant, located at 278 E Wapato Way in Manson offers a wonderful variety of meals made with only fresh foods and the majority of items made in-house. Guy Rogers is the Chef. He learned his culinary skill at a school in Alabama. He describes his cooking style as a fusion between things his great grandmother taught him and Cajun, but not too hot. His favorite foods are steaks and seafoods.

The second part of the Vison is their catering business. Jeff says they can handle parties and weddings up to 500 guests. They will deliver to Twisp, Leavenworth and as far south as Quincy. Lake Chelan Wedding Rentals, a company they purchased five years ago can supply items anywhere on the eastside of the mountains. And if that is not enough Lynn has a flower business that will provide a finishing touch to a wedding.
Along with Chef Rogers their staff includes Lannette Yorgason, a baker who graduated from Manson High School then returned to Manson 11 years ago. She loves making cinnamon rolls and a variety of banana breads. Many of you will recognize their head waitperson (and girl Friday), Donna Goggins. She has lived in Manson her entire life and worked at Campbells, the Apple Cup and a few more.
