Catering by Design’s Ten Years of Service

Celebrating 10 Years of Service

March 6, 2010 marks Catering by Design’s 10th anniversary.

We’ve had ten good years. We’ve been part of very important events in people’s lives. We’ve helped businesses take care of their employees and customers with meals and break food. We’ve served lunch to hundreds of school children.

We’ve worked with thousands of customers through Weddings, B’nai Mitzvah’s, Conferences, Annual Banquets, Picnics, Anniversaries, Awards Dinners, Fairs, Business Meetings, Annual Parties, Birthdays, you name it, and we’ve probably done it.

We are proud to have reached this milestone, proud also that some of the staff who started with us ten years ago are still working with us. “Chef Luis Compos, for example,” said our owner, Greg Lewis, “started washing dishes. He was interested in the business and because we cross train, he had the opportunity to work just about every job there was. When he showed a strong interest in cooking, he trained with me to become a chef. I’m very proud of him and his work.”

Catering by Design’s Operations Manager is Steve Zapadinsky. He arranges the events, orders everything, handles all equipment and oversees loading of the vans.

Jen Hernley is Catering by Design’s Sales Manager. When you want to talk with us about a catering event, Jen is the one you’ll make an appointment with and then meet in person. She handles the event budget, the selection process for the menu and anything else we are asked to do, including any special needs.

We have a number of event coordinators who actually manage the events on site: Cheri Matisuf, Steve Gade and Steve Lombardo. They are reliable and thorough, and take care of Catering by Design’s customers at the event sites.

Earlier this year, the Holly Springs Chamber of Commerce selected Catering by Design as their Small Business of the Year Award for outstanding service to the community and chamber.

We’re thankful for the past ten years, for our team and our customers. Here’s to the next ten!

Chef Greg Lewis Accepts Small Business of the Year Award

The Director of the Chamber of Commerce began speaking about a business that had given a great deal throughout the year, supporting the Chamber and local businesses on many different occasions.

“The Small Business of the Year award goes to that man right there,” announced the Director pointing to one of the guests, “Greg Lewis of Catering by Design.”

Greg was very surprised, and honored! True to who he is, he immediately says, “It’s my staff who have earned this award. They are the ones who deliver the service: we have four excellent chefs and a staff that helps prepare, deliver, do set-up and serve at our many events throughout the greater Raleigh area.”

Catering by Design has catered many annual banquets, member appreciation events and other chamber events over the past few years for the Holly Springs Chamber of Commerce and other local chambers of commerce.

We’re proud of our Chef Greg Lewis! And we’re proud that Catering by Design is an award-winning caterer!
