Where Culinary Art Meets The Imagination…
What separates 1st To Roll Catering from other catering companies, is not only their delicious and healthy cuisine, but that they are a boutique production catering company that is family owned and operated. That means you get treated like family, not like a customer! They take great pride in their company, from preparation to presentation. On top of that, the chefs are extremely accommodating and very respectful to the entire crew. The cuisine is always farmer’s market driven; only using the highest quality, fresh, and local ingredients. You will NOT be disappointed!
