Favorite Ukrop’s Food: Carrot Cake
Terri Joyce has always been fascinated by beautiful cakes and even started making her own cakes for her kids. After taking a few classes, she was the go-to person for cakes in her neighborhood.
She has a long history with Ukrop’s, working for 17 years in various positions in the floral shop. In 2010, she was given the opportunity to lead the catering department at MARTIN’S, selling Ukrop’s wedding and specialty cakes. Meeting with brides and grooms has given Terri much joy. She enjoys sharing her knowledge about the various kinds of cakes and designs – she even makes a sketch for them to take home!
In the Fall of 2016, Terri was given the opportunity to return to Ukrop’s as the Catering Manager. She now finds her passion in talking to Ukrop’s customers about catering needs, custom cakes, and especially their wedding cake!
Favorite Quote: Therefore as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly love, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Col 3:12
Favorite Hobby: When Terri isn’t sharing her passion for cakes, she spends time with her large family, reading, gardening, travelling and checking out new restaurants in RVA.
Why Ukrop’s: When I began working for Ukrop’s Super Markets in 1993, I remember thinking that it was so iconic. I definitely wanted to be a part of the store where I knew and really liked the people who worked there. As I have transitioned over the years, I can honestly say, the associates….the associates here are what makes this company a great place to work.
