Great Performances

Meet Our Culinary Team

We are pleased to introduce you to the Great Performances Catering culinary team. We are incredibly lucky to have such a diverse and talented group of men and women working with us to make each catered event we touch an event to remember. Each member of our culinary team is organized, proactive, detail-oriented, and has a passion for quality food and service, but they are so much more than that.  Each member of our team brings their own personal flair to each catering event in order to provide your guests (be they friends, clients, or colleagues) with the finest food and service possible while creating an atmosphere that is both enjoyable and stress-free. 

Get to know them a little better here.
