City of Tampa Selects Main Caterer

The City of Tampa just recently chose Providing By The Family as a preferred event caterer for the River Center at the brand-new Julian B. Lane Riverfront park.

The 2,880-square-foot location features floor-to-ceiling glass home windows that open up to a covered balcony as well as offers a scenic view of Tampa florida within the 25-acre park located downtown at 402 W Laurel St.

” We are honored to win this agreement, and also we take our collaboration with the City of Tampa fl very seriously,” stated Wedding catering By the Family members owner Steven Gonzalez Sr. in a news release statement.

Catering By the Family members is precisely what it seems like– a family-owned as well as -run catering company passed down from generation to generation.
Steven Gonzalez Sr. assumed possession from his papa, who began the business as a small sandwich shop back in 1976, where he began operating at age 16, and currently the kitchen is led by his boy Cook Steven Gonzalez Jr. and Eric Champagne.

When the wedding catering business took off in 1982, Gonzalez Sr. claimed he didn’t have a lot of understanding regarding it, but fell in love with it doing different events such as college graduations, weddings, vacation events, birthdays, company lunches and even divorce parties.

” I began tiny as well as from there one company customer resulted in an additional, and also another, and another, and also the enjoyment of being able to go into these beautiful houses, as well as communicating with visitors was a lot more enjoyable than being in a sandwich shop or dining establishment room.”

Gonzalez Sr. claims growing up half Italian and also half Spanish, everything was based around food, so it’s no shock his heritage is stood for in the food selection with Italian as well as Latin dishes. Now the little sandwich shop has actually developed into a high-volume wedding and divorce catering procedure. It has expanded its offerings to French cuisine, charcuterie and Creole food.
