Leaving the corporate world; she managed a popular, high volume, local diner for 14 years.
Scott, a native of the Philadelphia 'burbs, started cooking in an old fashioned diner. Moving on to hotel restaurants he started learning other aspects of kitchen management. Attending Johson & Wales Univeristy and acquiring a culinary degree, he worked in several fine dining hotel restaurants before stepping into the world of corporate contract dining. For the next 20 years, he has managed multi-million dollar kitchens for some high profile clients; acquiring skill in kitchen management & design, operational logistics & solutions, and marketing.
Having lived in Alvarado since 1997, and, having experienced the growth in the areas surrounding Alvarado, they realized there was a lack of caterers locally. Though there were restaurants that cater, there were no caterers that could provide a diversity of menu options and catering formats rolled into one package. The couple decided, in 2015, to create D'caterers
to fill that niche.
has been providing catering services with the help of their son, Sean; from private home parties, weddings at local venues, to interactive "cooking classes" at local businesses.
is a member of the Burleson and Alvarado, Texas Chambers of Commerce.
