They curate dishes that are gluten, nut and lactose-free, as well as meals suitable for vegans and vegetarians if required. Jose and Cristina strive to utilize fresh, organic farm produce to ensure quality and flavor.

    Fantastic caterer for business events!

    Melendez Catering offers a high-quality experience! Very accommodating for our business event. All of the guests were very impressed with the spread and the food was extremely fresh and delicious. Jose is willing to work with you to craft a menu specifically to your liking. I noted the care that went in to setting up the space to make the food look as appealing as it tasted. We will definitely be hiring Melendez Catering in the future.
