From Past… to Present

The Messina name was first introduced to the foodservice industry in June of 1961 when Andy Messina fulfilled his lifelong dream of owning a restaurant with his father. Andy Messina’s Restaurant and Catering Company, located in Kenner, was only the beginning for the Messina family.In 1991, Andy’s son, George, became the owner of Messina’s Inc. It was George’s vision to expand the trusted family restaurant business to new levels with greater opportunities.
