Who We Are

Chef John Oliver Evans cooks with style, sophistication and a touch of “Funkiness”. He is the Owner and Lead Visionary of Funky Fresh. His love of the culinary arts began at a very young age, cooking whole hog bbq with his father. He officially debuted his pop-up dining experience in Wilmington, followed by working alongside notable chefs in the Raleigh area. He then became a chef for a national pork chain assisting in their national food shows. John Oliver later officially opened Funky Fresh and began to focus specifically on weddings.

His wife, Pamela Evans, is the Lead Coordinator for their team. She handles all things communication and logistics and makes sure you have a smooth wedding journey. She worked as a Financial Advisor for RBC Wealth Management for 17 years. As their business grew, she transitioned full-time to Funky Fresh six years ago. Because of her background, she understands and appreciates the financial commitment weddings take and works with our couples and their families to make sure their vision is executed.

    Delicious and Flexible

    Pam and team at Funky Fresh epitomize southern hospitality. They had everyone drooling over their amazing crab cakes and kept everyone full and energized for a long night of dancing.

    Highly Recommend!

    Highly recommend! Pam was so wonderful to work with and very accommodating with all of our special requests. The big question though is how was the food....it was amazing! All of our guests raved about how much they enjoyed the appetizers and the main meal. And the staff was extremely friendly, attentive, and professional. I've already recommended Funky Fresh to multiple friends getting married and if you're looking, you should definitely set up a tasting!

    Absolutely Perfect

    We cannot say enough good things about Funky Fresh. Pam was an absolute joy to work with from start to finish. The tasting was outstanding, and the food at the actual event lived up to the standard of food we had at the tasting. They were flexible, respectful of our budget, generous, and incredibly professional. We felt like they really cared about us and took care of us every step of the way - we knew we had absolutely nothing to worry about by the time wedding day came.

    John Oliver is an extremely talented chef and has a unique, creative vision that he executes with class and style. I truly cannot believe the quality of the food that they served to hundreds of people. The quantity was generous, and the taste was exceptional. We had a vision of a charcuterie board and sent them pictures for inspiration - Funky Fresh put together exactly what we had in mind and blew our guests away.

    Thank you, Funky Fresh, for helping bring to life the wedding of our dreams. The catering aspect was extremely important to us, and from the day that we booked with you we knew that we had nothing to worry about. If you're on the fence, definitely book Funky Fresh for your event!

Please don't confuse Funky Fresh with the "street trucks" commonly associated with food trucks. They have a mobile kitchen in a truck so that everything is prepared fresh on site. They are full service, sit down or buffet. The food is beyond imagination. We can't wait to have them here again. Yum
