Our Story

An unerring focus on three elements has driven our success: Brilliant food. Flawless service. Stunning venues. Thousands of our guests across New England have experienced this alchemy since our humble beginning in 1979. They’ve made us the region’s best-loved catering and event design company. We’ve come a rather long way from our beginnings, when founder Holly Safford set out with just a toaster oven and a glimmer in her eye.

Today, with 300 employees and a 15,000-square foot headquarters, our focus is unchanged. And all of us, from our Executive Chef and his culinary team to our design team and wait staff, look forward to conjuring with that Special Ingredient every day.
