Popolo Catering is the largest catering company in Central California. Based out of San Luis Obispo, Popolo Catering has the vehicles and equipment to travel up and down the Central Coast to execute dinner buffets, plated dinners, and family-style dinner services.
Leon and Kathleen Castillo run Popolo Catering with care. They are involved daily to ensure the quality and standard they’ve built are constantly carried through with each client’s event. Leon has been operating Popolo Catering for the last 16 years and has built unique Catering Meal Packages that give our clients the flexibility to customize their order with a specific menu, services, and rentals to fit their event needs. Catering meal packages come inclusive with two appetizers (upgrades available) and a choice of bread or tortillas to go with their meal.
Leon has also created a Free Quote Estimate feature on our website that allows clients to build a custom quote with our catering meal packages, additional services, and rentals. It is a shopping-cart-like feature that will give you an estimate of how much your order will cost. This helps our clients familiarize themselves with our menu, services, and pricing and is another great way to start the inquiring process.
Two core values that will be immediately recognizable is our transparency and commitment. Popolo Catering has a team of amazing individuals that care about what they are doing and want to see each event executed to meet our client’s vision.

I was married out of town and had to rely on email communication to plan for my wedding. Popolo Catering and Monica were extremely responsive and made planning so easy. The food was delicious and I felt it was a true bargain for what was provided. I would highly recommend the catering services! They truly cater to your every need!!Sent on 11/01/2019

Amazing food & service for a phenomenal price!
First off, Kathy and Leon were an absolute joy to work with! They treated us like family throughout the planning process and were always willing to offer suggestions and recommendations based on their extensive experience (which I heavily relied upon). To top it off, they were also not afraid to point out where we could save quite a bit of money without compromising our vision - something I truly appreciated! The food was fantastic and the staff even accommodated a last minute request when it came to the cake cutting. Thank you so much Popolo Team!
P.S. I highly recommend their beef brisket and chicken formaggio dish! A guest favorite at our event!Sent on 09/28/2019
