Meet The Faces Behind Crateful Catering
We’re Andre Marotti and Emanuele Ponzo, proud owners of Crateful Catering.
We look forward to sharing our story. We hope that you will enjoy getting to know us better.
Andre and I are both from Rome, Italy, where great tasting food, using top quality ingredients as well as elegance and style define the environment that we grew up with. We realized that having a high-end catering business in LA would allow us to use all of these talents, interests, and a passion for offering delicious food that looked amazing and turn it into one of the best catering services in SoCal.
Crateful started operations at the end of 2015, so it’s now been three years that we’ve been running the business. Both of us have had several successful businesses before. Of course, we started this one as an adventure because it was a passion project of ours. We made plenty of mistakes before slowly growing into a solid business that consistently offers the best products and presentation in the market. We were even awarded the Best of Beverly Hills Golden Palm award which we’re very proud of and means a lot to us.
While we do run a very successful business, we like to keep it small enough so that we can be involved in every event to make sure our clients always get the best of what our creativity and skills have to offer. This is probably what sets us apart from the others because we never want to compromise on quality and always work with passion.
We believe in customizing each client’s specific need using a ‘boutique’ approach in which having a personal relationship is at the center with great food all around. When we see the smiles on people’s faces when they taste our food and look at our presentations, it gives us an immense sense of satisfaction.
Behind this seamless experience, we have a great team working hard to meet our clients’ needs. We attribute our success to sheer team effort and hard work.
When we are not at work, Andre is a waterman who is always looking for the next swell, and I am an ex-professional soccer player and still enjoys playing.
We have enjoyed sharing our story about the things which matter to us and how they influence the way we do business.
