RE & Sandy's Catering Company was created in 2015 out of a passion for amazing food and service. With over 70 years of experience in the food industry between them and the unique influences of their families, they share a devotion for helping you plan the perfect meal for your special occassion, large or small.
R.E.'s experience began as he grew up learning and helping his mother and grandmother create homemade, made from scratch, recipes that have been passed down through the family for generations. He later moved on to work with his father at their family business to learn the family trade. Finding a passion for food and a love for working in the industry, R.E. took his talents to Colorado where he worked at a premier resort learning from three experienced chefs to better his abilities.
Missing home, R.E. returned to southern Illinois in 1984 where he began managing the kitchen from 1984 to 2014 in Giant City State Park, where he met Sandy, and the story of their catering company begins. R.E. and Sandy Bridges have been married for over 28 years.
After leaving his position for health reasons in 2014 and numerous requests for R.E.'s home cooking, R.E. & Sandy's Catering Company was born. With R.E. unable to work, Sandy, armed with his favorite recipes built a commercial kitchen and is now serving the same, homestyle meals and custom BBQ sauces and dressings that people have grown to love.
Let us help you plan the perfect meal for your next occassion. We extend an unforgettable stress free experience with homestyle cooking and picnic style catering that you won't forget.
