Our company grew from its humble beginnings in 1996 as a simple casual catering company when Ingrid interviewed and hired Cade as the executive chef. As it turns out, she was interviewing for two positions: chef and husband! They quickly started dating about three weeks later and married three years later. But enough about the sappy stuff!
Cade & Ingrid quickly realized they had a passion for high-caliber events and sought to surround themselves with like-minded individuals to complement the team. The company grew rapidly, but they never veered from what was important: great food, professional yet approachable service, and spectacular presentation. Their aim was never to be the biggest caterer. Instead, they aimed to be the best.
Their passion for creativity and innovation led to the decor division, which highlights everything beautiful in an event, including soft seating, floral accents, detail enhancements, and design. When this division launched, the company could now provide a unique service to their clients by integrating fantastic food in a curated environment.
We have put our stake in the ground that we are passionate about creativity. Every menu and look is carefully curated to ensure our events are unique to our clients. Our hallmark: we are constantly creative, and experiences are always reimagined. You won’t find another company that can create such customized experiences.
Many years later, as Ingrid & Cade reflect on the company’s history, they attribute the growth to the team that works with them tirelessly, day in and day out. Everyone that works for the company has a passion for the industry. Without this team, creativity and culture wouldn’t be possible.
