Our desire is that every one of our catered events ends with the feeling that you have truly made, “A Better Choice!” ​ Larry and Linda remain committed to providing that same passion and excellence which launched ABC Catering in 2006, and have entrusted two of their children, Phillip & Nicholas, to run and maintain the day to day catering and events.
