A Recent Thanksgiving Dinner Review: Just a thank you for the most wonderful food! My cousin and her dad said you were great and they sure were right. I was sick but my husband brought our dinners home. Your food was so good I guess my family decided this will be our new tradition. YouMary C.
What began as just an idea in 1971 has blossomed into one of Western New York’s finest catering operations. Celebrating 45 years of operation in the Tonawanda’s, Jack and Mary Ann Cohen, owners of Mr. & Mrs. Catering Service, Inc. turned over the reins of operation to their eldest son David on September 1st, 2004.
Jack & Mary Ann are stepping aside with pride, although Jack feels that David will be calling on them for occasional help. “We wish David the best for his future and congratulate him for his accomplishments and determination.” They are excited that a family member is carrying on the tradition of “hot foods served hot” or “from the oven to the plate.”
David is proud of what his parents have accomplished with their business. He boasts that he will continue to keep the tradition of hot foods first and foremost in the buffet line, something that his parents prided themselves in doing. His goal is to beat his parents’ record of serving 600 people on a sit-down dinner in 18 minutes by doing it in 14 minutes or less. Serving 400 people with eight buffet lines is a tradition for Mr. & Mrs. Catering.
“I am not really taking over, I am just moving forward. I am excited for the opportunity that my parents have given me, and can assure them that I will not let them down.”
