Meet Jim Backhus of Mom’s Secret Chef

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jim Backhus.

Jim, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
For the last 10-11 years Mom’s Secret Chef (MSC) has specialized in delicious homemade meals-to-go for businesses, families and individuals who love home style cooking but do not always have the time to cook them.

MSC offers a variety of entrees and we have an “ever-changing” weekly Menu.

“What’s for dinner tonight?” is the everyday question and MSC offers a solution with our food-to-go and easy reheating method.

Has it been a smooth road?
Fairly smooth road…. with daily challenges to operate efficiently.

We have been blessed with growth but at the same time the higher cost of doing business.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
We specialize in home cooked food to go. Our food items offer ease of preparation (just easy reheating) and are delicious.

Known for Chicken Pot Pie, Chicken Spaghetti, Beef Lasagna, King Ranch Chicken…….just to name a few.

We talk to and get to know everyone that walks into our business. We keep the business professional; however, we are personable.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Yes, the existing location is a great area for our business.

Our future goal is to open additional locations in nearby Communities.
