since 2001​

Chef John Linder is a graduate from Johnson & Wales University, where he received a degree in Culinary Arts. He also received a B.S. in Business Management from the University of South Carolina at Spartanburg. After seven years of working in the Food Service Industry, John went out on his own in March of 1995, purchasing what is now John's Café & Catering. In 2001, John purchased a house built in 1901 on Main Street in Cowpens.

He presently uses this house a a banquet facility for Weddings, Rehearsals, Birthday Parties, Anniversaries, Christmas Parties, Sweet 16 Parties and just about any type of party you can imagine.

The name of the facility was picked by John to remember the original family, which lived there. Today it is called The Wilkins House. We can accommodate sit down meals for 100 guests and stand up receptions for up to 250 guests.

Please think about The Wilkins House for your next special occasion.
