Name: Marissa McCue


Blog: we're about to begin one ... stay tuned !!

Where are you located, and what geographical area(s) do you service?
We are statewide - main office in Cheshire , second location in Darien opening spring 09... exclusive caterer at The Guilford Yacht Club, New Britain Museum of American Art, Lyman Homestead, Whinstone Tavern-Stanley Golf...but we cater to many tremendous venues throughout Connecticut.

How long have you been in business?
Jordan Caterers celebrates 30 years this year. Personally 18 years in the business, 7 as a planner for Jordan Caterers.

What drew you to event catering as a profession?
I have always been in the restaurant business..through high school and the energy! I have a degree in Art, so planning and designing was a really natural marriage if you will... to the food and beverage background I have. I love that it's a different party each time... different clients, venues, tastes and styles..colors, idea's and personal stories... it allows me to really be creative and have fun with my clients.

What do you feel sets you apart as a caterer?
We have a really talented culinary team with varying backgrounds. They have trained and chefed parties all over the world. Our food is wonderful and innovative; the displays are creative and fresh!! We also have a design and decor team and are happy to consult with clients by request. We provide full service for our clients.

What do you love most about your job?
My clients... there's NOTHING better that a bride walking into her celebration and saying "this is just so much better than I ever dreamed of"... who doesn't want to be a part of that?

If you had to describe yourself in one word, what would it be?
