Occasions Catering in Englewood, Colo., announced that they will be taking over Tony’s Catering full-service catering operations. Tony’s Catering in Denver, a division of Tony’s Meats & Market, will continue to offer limited-service catering to its clients as well as pick-up and drop-off.
“We are thrilled to be associated with the Tony’s brand and to produce events for their great clients,” says Jeremy Bronson, president and co-owner, Occasions Catering. “Tony’s clients can take comfort in knowing they will receive our trademark personal touch service, leveraging our 46 years of experience and growing catering operation.”
As of March 13, Occasions assumed all of Tony’s full-service clients. After the two companies have completed the transition of current clients, they will look into deeper partnership opportunities that weigh the strengths of the two Denver businesses.
“Our number one concern is ensuring that our clients receive the same care, quality and service we have cultivated over the past 39 years,” says Daniel Rosacci, CEO, Tony’s Catering and Tony’s Meats & Markets. “Occasions Catering is a partner that we know will fulfill that promise.”
Tony’s Catering will aid Occasions during the transition, and Occasions Catering Executive Chef Chris Meier and his team will manage all culinary processes in the Occasions kitchens.
