It was such a pleasure to sit down with Marcia Jervis, Co-Owner of The Mad Platter Restaurant in Nashville, TN. Marcia has a warm, bubbly personality that lights up a room. She has a Bachelor's Degree in Broadcasting from The University of Tennessee but, instead of entering the world of media she has spent the past 23+ years in the catering and restaurant industry.
