At Jay’s, we give every one of our events special attention. With over four decades of experience as Southern California’s premier caterer, we can truly do it all—and everything we do, we do with an unmatched level of expertise. Whether you are planning an intimate dinner or a grand gala, we possess the passion and the manpower to tailor our services to your needs. Our company prides itself on being an all-inclusive caterer. Our key services include:
•A comprehensive culinary crew that loves to bring that “wow” factor to your guests through improvised culinary demonstrations, sugar spinning, station carving, and other interactive cooking activities.
•Jay’s Rentals—a branch of our company devoted exclusively to rentals—can directly provide you with essential event items like tables, chairs, chafing dishes, and linens. Our rentals are competitively priced and will make your planning process much simpler.
•We are licensed to offer full bar services and are masters of innovative mixology. We love to create signature drinks for our clients that reflect them and their event.
Our order and setup choices include:
Delivery orders. Perfect for a casual, small occasion. Our delivery staff is always on time and can bring both hot and cold cuisine right to your venue.
Pickup orders. If your order is small enough to fit in your vehicle, you can pick it up from either our main kitchen in Garden Grove or Ellie’s Table in San Clemente. Our team is available to load your cuisine into your car and handle all the heavy-lifting.
Executive set-ups. Let us set everything up so you can actually be a guest at your own party! Our executive delivery staff members are experts at on-location setups. They will make sure that your cuisine and equipment are flawlessly arranged and ready to go on time.
Full-service events. We have a complete wait-staff that is available to handle every aspect of your event, starting with the setup and ending with the night’s cleanup and equipment dismantling.
In addition to the above services, three cornerstones set us a head above our competitors.
We offer the highest quality cuisine with the most innovative flair
Every day, our Chefs de Cuisine use the freshest ingredients available in their imaginative and from-scratch recipes. They fuse the best aspects of world cuisine to bring food to your event that rivals fine restaurant dining. When you taste our food, the idea that catering is inferior to restaurant cuisine will be a thing of the past.
Our company’s size is an asset
Our 36,000 sq. ft. premises empower us to make both small and large events unforgettable. Many catering companies are limited as to what they can produce because of their kitchen sizes, but Jay’s has over 4,000 square feet of kitchen space. We have an extensive bakery in our headquarters that is equipped to bake scrumptious treats for up to 5,000 people per event. We may be a big company, but that doesn’t interfere with the quality of our food or the personal interest we take in every client. Our goal is to utilize our size to make your event everything you want it to be while making you feel like family.
Our Event Specialists are knowledgeable, passionate, and experienced
Our Event Specialists not only take the headache out of the event planning process; they make the process pleasurable. They put your vision into tangible terms, guide your decision-making, and hold your hand through every step of planning. They are also a tremendous resource: if Jay’s doesn’t provide something that your event calls for, our Event Specialists can acquire it for you because of their extensive networking abilities and experience in the industry.
Furthermore, we offer event design and layout assistance. Our talented Rental Sales Manager, Claudio, can map out your venue and turn any space into a dream event.
When it comes to servers, we never use a staffing agency. Instead, we thoroughly train our staff ourselves to ensure that they will deliver above-and-beyond event assistance. Our team members understand the ins-and-outs of servicing a special occasion.
With our in-depth and diverse services, you can rest assured that Jay's is the caterer for you!
