In an effort to bring you the most trendy and tasteful combination of exceptional food, service and event orchestration that only 28 years of experience can bring to the table...their mission is your 'vision'. Following a near fatal bout with Bacterial Meningitis in 2009, Jerri turned to writing and is publishing her book CATER$AVVY "Secrets of the Trade Revealed" in late summer 2013. She and other caterers from all over the US share secrets of the industry and a how-to approach of opening and operating a catering business. A percentage of book sales will be donated to Meningitis research and awareness.
