Our Exclusive Catering Story

reception_center_with_logo-1.jpgOriginally founded in 1955 in Brooklyn, New York, Jacques Exclusive Caterers has grown to become the tri-state area’s complete caterer for all your party needs, serving the New York metropolitan tri-state area with facilities in Staten Island, NY and Hazlet, NJ, along with our full-service reception center located in Middletown, NJ.

After growing up enjoying the smell of fresh home cooking, and with years of work experience from our original Brooklyn office, I decided to bring Jacques to the New Jersey.During this time, the catering age evolved from wedding receptions of cold cut platters to catered reception dinners with hot entrees.Jacques is one of the original pioneers responsible for bringing fresh quality foods into your home, thus coining the term "off-premise catering". Whether it's for a traditional family gathering or an elaborate seven-course sit-down dinner with china and wait-staff, Jacques has evolved to bring you the utmost in style and elegance for every occasion.

Since our first office in New Jersey opened in 1981, Jacques Exclusive Caterers has expanded to its current office space in Hazlet to provide our excellent cuisine to your home, office or at any location you choose. In addition, Jacques Reception Center in Middletown has been hosting the finest weddings, corporate events and special occasions since opening in 2000. Our full service on-premise banquet facility is perfect for weddings, Bar-and-Bat-Mitzvahs, or any special occasion and follows the same traditions, service and quality you have come to expect from our company.

This new facility has undergone a multi-million dollar renovation project, boasting a ceremonial garden with cascading fountains, soaring ceilings with imported Italian chandeliers, and an expansive lobby with beautiful granite floors. Our completely renovated reception center will take your breath away and make your special day one to remember forever! We can accommodate your every need, from intimate dinners for 50 guests up to gala receptions for 450 attendees. You're invited to call us any time at 732-671-0700 to schedule a private tour.

Today’s generation has continued the tradition of providing the same authentic Italian cuisine you remember, as well as a variety of Continental and ethnic cuisines. Jacques now offers over 70 specialty items as well as holiday dinners for Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years Eve and a variety of holidays, as well as the ultimate wedding receptions either on-site in our beautiful reception center or at an off-site location of your choice. With four generations of culinary expertise, our food is top quality and our service is outstanding.

What New Jersey Clients Are Saying About Us

"Overall me and my know wife were happy with our wedding. Food quality was well above our and our guests expectations and service from our servers was five star, nothing you wouldn't see from a top notch resturant. On the bad which isn't that bad is they are pretty hard to get in touch with during week, and we never got any calls from them during the weeks leading up to our wedding." Read More
