Freckled & Blue Combines Unique Story With Quality Food and Service

By Jake Levin

Husband and wife team Tyler and Juliana Lindley had past experience in the food industry upon graduating college, but like so many others, first found themselves in corporate America.

In September 2012, they decided to apply their knowledge and open up a business together, a food truck named "Freckled & Blue" in Smyrna, Ga. The name, of course, is derived from Juliana's freckles and Tyler's blue eyes.

"We loved how food can bring people together to share time together," Tyler Lindley said.

Quickly, they realized catering was their true calling and shifted their focus to just that. A little more than a month ago, the duo opened up a new location in Marietta, Ga., which operates as a full service restaurant, complete with sit-down and take-out options, as well as the catering aspect.

"I enjoy achieving our goals together," Tyler Lindley said. "We obsess over the quality and consistency of our food and have experience catering hundreds of different types of events. We put a lot of attention into the small details because all of the small things add up to be big things and can make the difference between a pretty good event versus a great event."

Freckled & Blue is comprised of a tight-knit staff, one which Tyler Lindley said has become a family. He said that he and his wife have become the de facto mom and dad of the group, roles which they enjoy.

"We have a well-trained, dependable staff that we take care of, and in turn, they take care of our guests at catering events," Tyler Lindley said. "Our positive, family-based culture shines through in all of our catered events to create meaningful events to remember."

The Lindley's are also keen on giving back to their community. Freckled & Blue partners with local charities and nonprofits to donate resources to causes it feels passionate about.

"Giving to others and caring about our community are a part of our core values and it helps to make our family a part of our surrounding community," Tyler Lindley said.

Freckled & Blue Kitchen, the restaurant and retail grocery store, is open Tuesday-Saturday 11am-8pm. The Kitchen is located at 547 Atlanta St SE, Marietta, GA 30060. To view a full menu or to learn more about the Lindley's business, check out their website,
