Founding partner Vincent Marra has spent a lifetime in the hospitality industry. Reared in his family’s restaurants, it was no surprise when he enrolled in the prestigious culinary arts program at Johnson & Wales University. After a brief sojourn to academic life to earn additional degrees in English, Philosophy, and Education Vince returned to his culinary roots.
?For more than 20 years he held prestigious positions in world-class hospitality organizations. Certified as an Executive Chef by the American Culinary Federation at age 27, Vince has split time between 5 diamond resorts, national chain restaurants, and hospitality consulting.
Vice President of Sales Travis Schamerhorn is a man of many talents. Navy Intelligence Specialist, Insurance Salesman, Computer Hardware Technician, Hospitality Educator, and Post-Impressionistic Artist are all career paths travelled by Travis.
Energized by his lifelong passion for hospitality & a personal promise to re-invent himself before turning 40, Travis fled the security of his corporate marketing career for the rigors of culinary school and the challenges of restaurant ownership..
Vince met Travis while working on a consulting project at a major hotel, Vince knew that he had found the ingredients for a promising partnership. The rest, as they say, is history.

Simply the best
Vince and his team at GHI have been so accomodating and helpful throughout the whole process. Personable and friendly, we have only ever had a positive experience in our communication with them.Sent on 05/29/2020
We had to reschedule our event due to COVID-19, and we recieved nothing short of professional, 'no-pressure', service. All we had to do was let Vince know and the rest was taken care of.
Prior to confirming GHI as our caterer and DJ we attended a tasting at their premises in Atlanta- the food was exceptionally prepared, extremely tasty, and there was no problem if we decided to swap something out. It was so tasty we even took boxes home to let people try!
Overall we are extremely pleased with GHI's performance as a vendor, and they recieve our highest recommendation for all catering/DJ/coorination needs.
GHI Catering's reply:You & Jack are dream clients. Thank you for taking the time to do this. We can't wait to serve you!

GHI prepared a delicious selection for us at our wedding, and were very open to any changes we wanted to make with the menu. Quick responses to all our questions, and did an exceptional job setting up and breaking down during the event. Their staff was beyond friendly, and I don’t think I ever saw them without a smile on their face! We hired our wedding coordinator with GHI as well, and it was the best decision we made. She was there for all our needs, and had our wedding running like a well oiled machine. She communicated with all the vendors, and when we walked in for our introduction, it was magical seeing our vision come to life.Sent on 01/05/2020

Gotta Have It Catering made our rehearsal dinner dreams come true! The service was impeccable and the food was absolutely amazing! They even embraced our Coca-Cola theme with different types of decorations, coke floats, and desserts.Sent on 08/14/2019
The servers and bartenders were attentive and very helpful. The food was hot and tasted fabulous. Our guests were going back for seconds and thirds.
Vince, Travis, Doug and Courtney worked closely with us to capture every detail and request. We were extremely happy with the service and the food and it was the perfect way to kick off our wedding weekend.
GHI Catering's reply:It was our pleasure to serve you. Your families & friends were very warm & nice to the staff. Thank you for these kind words.
