The mother of the family behind Casper Fry tells their story best…
I cannot remember a moment in my life, when I have not felt the love of my family.
Every family, has a story, ours begins with Casper Fry. We honor our past by paying homage to those who have come before us, the foundation of a family not unlike others. We laugh, we cry, we love, we argue. We have a deep sense, and respect of where we come from, and we’re working together every day to build a future. Through our story, our food, our restaurants and our community we hope to build on the legacy from which we come.
Casper Fry was a good and humble man with Southern roots, who lived and preached in this neighborhood. He was our Great Grandfather, our Great-Great Grandfather. He was a Baptist Minister, whose Church still stands, right across the street. He nurtured his family, inspired his community and lovingly tended his garden, at a time when all gardens were organic. Our namesake, and inspiration to always do good, and declaration to bring people together through simple, delicious, fresh American comfort food, using local, fresh farm grown ingredients.
