Our Origin Story

Our story dates all the way to 1955 in Brooklyn, when our parents first opened the doors of their catering business, mainly serving weddings and receptions in the area. They earned the respect of customers throughout the borough of Brooklyn and all of New York City, thus beginning a family tradition of excellence.

As adults, even now, it all makes sense—we can still vividly recall the smells and tastes of the freshest home cooking from our childhood home. Our parents would also frequently bring us to their original catering office in Brooklyn, which shaped the outlook and philosophy about food and catering we still hold to today. Early on, we knew that people want really fresh, really flavorful cuisine that tastes, looks, and feels like home and brings on a sense of abundance and joy.

As time moved on from the traditions of the 1950s, the sophistication of brides and grooms and their guests also increased. Gone were the days of cold deli trays, and in came a desire for unique, sophisticated dishes reflecting many different tastes, cuisines, and cultures.

It was during this time of fascinating transition that today’s Jacques leadership staff took over. As the demand for new catering options spiked—including hot entrees served fresh at many different locations—we were prepared to answer that demand with high-quality off-premise catering.

In 1981, we moved from our Brooklyn office to New Jersey so that we could operate out of a central location that was convenient for all of our customers in the region. Not long after that, we expanded into our current office space in Hazlet, giving us a more solid presence in NJ.

In 2000, we entered into the venue business, opening our beautiful reception center in Middletown, NJ. We offer a full suite of services for New Jersey brides, grooms and event hosts.

It is our absolute pleasure to share our time, effort, and values with our clients, who believe in quality, service, and overall imaginative experiences just as much as we do. No matter where our story takes us next, we are confident that we will still enjoy sharing those beliefs with others for decades to come.
