  • Today I am going to talk to you about passion. My passion for my business. Ten years ago I was passed up for a promotion for a much younger woman with out experience in commercial real estate. After a few months it became clear to me that I was just miserable. So, I came home that night and told my husband it is time for us to move to Maine and start all over. So we did.
  • Chuck and I built our company with purpose and passion.
  • We now have up to 60 people we can call upon to work events. Our employees love to work with us because we are passionate about what we do.
  • Some caterers still work out of their home or garage. We have an actual café.
  • We have a fully insured full service liquor license.
  • This is a martini Luge that I designed and had an ice sculpture make for a party. I pay attention to all kinds of details.
  • We are a multifaceted company. Did we start a business that just functions during the summer months for outdoor events-NO- we cater breakfast, lunch and dinner as well.
  • There are thousands of caterers in Maine. Some of the top names are here. We came here in 2000 and started making a name for ourselves in a short period of time.
  • What sets us apart from other caterers?
  • Since 2004 we have received 3 different awards and have been featured in 3 different newspaper articles.
  • What also sets us apart from other caterers is our high quality food, service and fair pricing. Casey Family services could not believe the difference in our pricing compared to many others.

  • I am living my dream passionately. I preheat a memory. I make old friends out of strangers I fold in old friends with new friends. I COOK with LOVE
  • In closing if you see someone sporting new bling give me their name and number. If you meet an event planner at a business after 5, give me their name and number. If you know of anyone that orders food for business meeting give me their name and number. If you meet a pharmaceutical rep at a drug store give me their name and number. If you have a doctor, give me their name and number. If you have family or friends planning an event give me their name and number.
