Our Story

Our catering company, Simply Delicious, has a unique and inspiring story that began with the vision and passion of our founder, John Mauro. With over 35 years of experience in the restaurant industry, John had a deep understanding of the culinary world and a desire to create exceptional dining experiences.

John's journey took a significant turn when he met Denise Kapulka, a long-time friend and fellow industry professional. Recognizing their shared love for food and hospitality, John and Denise decided to join forces and form a partnership that would shape the future of Simply Delicious.

With their combined expertise and a shared commitment to excellence, John and Denise set out to establish a catering company that would go above and beyond traditional expectations. They believed that catering was not just about serving food but about creating memorable moments and providing exceptional service.

As Simply Delicious began to take shape, John and Denise also acquired Elms Cafe, a local eatery known for its delicious food and warm friendly atmosphere. This acquisition allowed them to expand their offerings and provide a unique blend of catering services and a charming cafe experience.

With their team of talented chefs, event planners, and service staff, Simply Delicious quickly gained a reputation for its innovative menus, attention to detail, and personalized approach. Whether it was a wedding, corporate event, or private party, the company's commitment to quality and creativity shone through in every dish and every interaction.

Over the years, Simply Delicious has had the privilege of catering for a diverse range of events, from intimate gatherings to large-scale celebrations. The company's dedication to exceeding expectations and creating unforgettable experiences has earned them a loyal clientele and numerous accolades within the industry.

Today, Simply Delicious continues to thrive under the leadership of John and Denise. Their unwavering passion for food, commitment to excellence, and genuine care for their clients have become the driving forces behind the company's success.

As they look towards the future, John and Denise remain focused on continuous growth, staying ahead of culinary trends, and providing unparalleled service.
