Catering Central was the team we hired for our Christmas Party in Indian Creek, Redwood Shores. The food was incredibly superb! Marcos prepared a delectable menu per our request for traditional Christmas fare, and we were surprised to discover how truly sumptuous each dish was! Our guests have been raving ever since!
Word also has it that our corporate office has heard of the success of the event brought on by this impressive array of gastronomic delights. Working with Marcos was a bree...
When you are looking to cater an upcoming event, consider the difference between meal plans and ala carte menus. At Catering Central, we are all about building quality meal plans that provide a structured theme to your event, rather than simply providing food. We believe that food can transcend simple nourishment, and become a vehicle for making memories.
Ala carte menus can definitely provide interesting bits and pieces for guests to nibble, but there are some major drawbacks for both the client and caterer. These kinds of menus create chaos and frustration in the caterer’s employees, as there is no flow. In addition, the foods are chosen based on taste preferences alone, rather than seasonality.
As we have said many times before, a themed meal is a delight for everyone involved. When the food has a theme, the event feels cohesive, and catering staff have a tighter grasp on what it is they’re serving their customer. Combined with the knowledge that we are providing the freshest food possible, a themed meal is hand designed to the nth degree – so you can focus on enjoying the occasion.
If you need catering for an upcoming party, corporate event or special occasion, we would love to work with you to make it happen. We do Private Party catering in the San Francisco Bay Area, Corporate Catering in Silicon Valley (94404), and events all the way from Mountain View to San Francisco. If you’re looking for catering when it comes to parties, events and gatherings – call us today on (650) 961-3300.
Here at Catering Central we pride ourselves on providing well-planned meals for our clients. Today we feature four ways in which we excel at creating meal plans that blow our competition out of the water.
Each part of the meal has been selected to compliment the others, with all elements working in one accord. Themed meals are a symphony of flavors dictated by a particular ethnic cuisine, giving your guests a meal they won’t forget.
We diligently provide choices for all types of dietary needs and preferences. For example; vegetarian, gluten free, vegan, and dairy free guests will always have something delicious to eat.
We serve what nature makes available during the season – giving you the best produce that can be obtained.
- Incredible Salads
Salads are easily the most overlooked part of a menu, and our salads are anything but boring. Specially selected to fit the mains to which they have been paired, our salads offer distinct flavor profiles. For example, our California menus have salads with avocado and quinoa, and our BBQ menus boast a wide range of fresh veggies to suit your plate.

Your kitchen is a place where new inventions come pouring in, but there’s something so satisfying about getting back to basics. Many kitchen items perform one function only, yet these five things can be upcycled and reused day after day.
If you enjoy a steaming cup of pour over every morning, you’re likely to be using paper filters. For a little more than the cost of a box of paper filters, you can pick up a cloth filter that does the job day after day. Rinse, hang out to dry!
Pasta sauce, peanut butter, olives and salsa all tend to come in glass jars. When you’re done with the product, remove the label (with the help of Goo Gone or Eucalyptus Oil) and reuse the clean jar.
Bags from Grocery Stores
Whether you’re finding uses for disposable bags at home (e.g. garbage liners, storage) or reusing cloth bags at the store, there are global benefits of being mindful of waste.
Salt and Pepper Grinders
When you purchase whole salt and pepper at the grocery store, they come in grinders that many throw in the trash after one use. Simply take off the lid, and refill.
Food Storage Containers
Bringing your own food to work or school is good for your wallet and waistline. In addition, you cut down on waste when you reuse the containers in which you store food.
If you need catering for an upcoming party, corporate event or special occasion, we would love to work with you to make it happen. We do Private Party catering in the San Francisco Bay Area, Corporate Catering in Silicon Valley, and events all the way from Palo Alto (94301) to San Francisco.

Client Holiday Party Success!!
MH Podell Property Management
We use Marcos and Catering Central for 100+ person company lunches every so often, and our employees always have good things to say! Marcos does a consistently quality job, on-time, and the price is right. We have ordered something different every time, and it's all been good. If you have a group to feed, they will work with you from menu selection through billing, definitely recommend!
Company Event is a Success!!
I've had Catering Central do two events here at Tesla. Marcos went above and beyond to make sure that both of my events were a success. His food also matched their excellent service throughout the whole planning - from picking out the menu, to working with our budget, to the day of the event and even afterwards. Enzo also was very professional and was on top of things on the day of.
I can't wait to use them again for other events.

Quality Food and Service!
Came across Catering Central website while looking for caterers to bring lunch to our office every week. Our employees are typically very picky but Marcos' meets or exceeds our expectations every time. Everything is always fresh and hot. We only have about 40 or less employees but the portions are generous and it's nice to have friendly people delivering who make sure we are satisfied with our order. I highly recommend Catering Central for any event!
