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 and 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 they have selected. 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.

PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT! Popolo's food is amazing!! We hired them for our wedding 6/10/17 in Paso Robles and I had several people raving about the food. But more than that, Popolo made the entire process so much easier on us. The whole staff is extremely helpful, and Leon (the owner) is completely down to earth which actually helped make me stay calm. I knew that he understood what we wanted and and the fact that he was so easy to talk to made me confident that everything would be great! And it was! The staff was professional and amazing. One server even came over to us with a tray of appetizers while we were taking photos which I really really appreciated. Then Leon personally served us our meal at the reception so that we could just relax.
If you want GREAT food from a professional, helpful staff at a reasonable price you have to go with Popolo! Thank you so much Leon, Kat, Abby, and everyone else!

Delicious Food & Service
We loved having Popolo cater our wedding. The food was exactly what we wanted - DELICIOUS! Our guests were raving about the tri-tip and the mashed potatoes. Working with their team was a breeze. They made it very easy and stress free to make adjustments and changes as the deadline approached. The pricing was also very reasonable. Would definitely recommend them for a wedding or any other event!Sent on 11/27/2018
