About Conroy Catering

Conroy Catering began very simply about 30 years ago. A young man named Jack had just graduated from restaurant school. A young woman named Beth had just earned her degree in psychology. The world was full of possibilities, and Jack and Beth were determined to explore them. They decided to pursue their dream of running a catering business together.

They had no employees. When they needed extra help, they turned to friends and relatives. Their base of operations was a truck they drove from event to event. It was a humble beginning, yet Jack and Beth made sure the important things were right from the start:

They worked hard and pursued perfection. Their ingredients had to be the finest, the recipes extraordinary, the service exquisite. As their resources grew, they invested more and more in perfecting their work. They insisted on the best equipment, the best suppliers, and the best employees. Their reputation grew. It became clear that Conroy Catering was different. It was truly exceptional.

In time, Jack and Beth married. As their relationship changed, so did their business. They focused on developing exclusive venues where they could host clients on their own terms and better control the quality of every aspect of the event. They set up shop in two elegant, historic properties that offered ambience to match the Conroys' extraordinary food and gracious service. They continued to grow and excel.

Today, Conroy Catering employs more than 100 professionals who share Jack and Beth's dedication to exceptional quality in food and service. They offer clients remarkable events in timelessly elegant settings. As they have from the beginning, they work hard and focus on the details. They pursue perfection in every moment, with every client.

No matter how simple or elaborate your plans, Conroy Catering is the company to rely on to make them real -- experienced, professional, and always exceptional.

    My husband and I fell in love with Knowlton Mansion from our first visit and our wedding there was absolutely perfect. Everyone we dealt with was responsive and fantastic. We worked with Lori through the planning process and she made it such an easy and nice experience. Eileen, our day of coordinator, and Dee, our wedding day attendant were incredible as well. Eileen made sure everything was set up exactly how we had pictured it and Dee was incredibly attentive during the wedding, making sure we had anything we could want.

    Our wedding was gorgeous and exactly what we pictured, all of the guests commented on how unique the venue was and how delicious all of the food was. That, combined with the great staff who worked with us to make our wedding perfect truly made this a perfect day. I'd recommend Knowlton Mansion to anyone looking for a magical, unique venue for their wedding.

    My husband and I had looked at dozens of venues before stumbling upon Knowlton Mansion through a message board discussing local venues, and it was the best thing that could have happened to us. After our initial visit, we knew immediately that this was the perfect venue.
    Everyone we encountered through Knowlton and Conroy Catering were extremely professional, helpful, and accommodating. Lori was our rep throughout the booking process up until the day of. She was readily available to answer any questions and was extremely knowledgeable of not only Knowlton weddings, but any wedding process.
    We chose a December wedding, which meant that the mansion was decorated with wreaths, garlands, trees, and other holiday decor. It really added to the space and made it that much more special. The history of the venue and all of the details throughout the mansion really added an amazing character that you really can't get in a typical wedding hall-type venue.
    From the catering aspect, we chose the stations option, which was, in my opinion, the best option. Our guests loved having so many options to choose from for their meals and made the night go so much faster in terms of the flow of events. Everyone absolutely loved the food options and were amazed at the attentiveness of the entire staff. We also chose a cupcake tier instead of the normal wedding cake, and it was a huge hit.
    On the day of the wedding, we had two staff members assigned to us, a maitre de and a coordinator. Our maitre de was Dee, and she did such a great job making sure that we had everything we needed throughout the day. Our coordinator was Jeannie. She was so amazing and accommodating for anything we needed throughout the night. She made sure that everything was taken care of exactly how we planned it. She and Dee were amazing coordinating with our vendors and made our evening absolutely perfect!
    My husband and I would 100% recommend recommend Knowlton Mansion and Conroy Catering for any event!

    Some of my favorite venues are those that are unique but still in the city - and Conroy Catering fits the bill. Glen Foerd is my absolute favorite and Knowlton and Laurita Winery are wonderful too. All are catered by Conroy and their food is amazing. They have custom designed menus for my clients and really listened to them to achieve their perfect wedding. The staff is professional and wonderful and the consultants are wonderful and easy to work with!
