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.

Tasty food and amazing service
We LOVE Popolo! The food is amazing and the service was outstanding. From the moment we booked, the staff at Popolo has been attentive, detail oriented, and so kind. I love how easy it was to get a quote started online. We were also able to rent all of our linens, flatware, plates, and glassware through Popolo! Monica was so helpful with finalizing all of the last minute wedding details! The day-of food service went off without a hitch and I receive rave reviews from our guests. I still dream about the mashed potatoes and tri tip! I highly recommend Popolo catering for your next wedding or special event.Sent on 06/11/2019

Outstanding Food and Service
We are extremely satisfied with the delicious food and amazing service from the Popolo Catering owners and staff as they showcased their talent at our daughter's wedding. From our initial encounter at a wedding fair and on through the tasting, planning, and finally the wedding itself, the service was highly professional and very personal. The family style table service was by far the best way to get hot, tasty food to over 130 guests quickly and efficiently. Throughout the reception we heard compliments about the great food that was served. We were thrilled that they were an integral part of making my daughter's dream wedding a reality!Sent on 05/30/2019
