We are honored to have been voted Best Caterer again by New Orleans CityBusiness readers! Each year, New Orleans CityBusiness readers cast votes for their favorite businesses in the New Orleans area, based on their own experiences. Messina’s was selected by readers in 2017, 2018 and 2019.
The awards were presented on June 3rd at the CityBusiness Reader Rankings cocktail awards ceremony celebrated at The New Orleans Museum of Art. George, Stacey and Andrew Messina were all in attendance to accept the award.
“We are proud to be celebrating 58 years of catering in New Orleans this year,” said Messina’s Owner & President, George Messina. “As a third-generation, family-owned and operated business, we are extremely honored to receive this award for the third year in a row.”
We owe a great deal of our success to our incredible team,” said Stacey Messina, Messina’s Owner and VP of Sales & Marketing. “Family members and loyal employees make up the core of our team, many of which have been with us for over 15 years. That loyalty and expertise is what keeps our customers coming back.”
The Messina’s Catering & Events Difference
Messina’s Catering & Events has 58 years of excellence in culinary, beverage and staffing for off-site catering, festivals, corporate catering, private residence catering, weddings, crawfish boils, Mardi Gras coronations, balls, and debutante events. Consistency in quality, attention to detail, repeat customer satisfaction, accolades, and increased revenues each year has proven over the years that we are a leader in the food and beverage industry.
Messina’s is proud to be a family-owned and operated company with exceptional team members. We generally operate with 130 part-time and 20 full-time employees year-round. During peak season times, we could employ as many as 200 skilled team members. Family members and loyal employees make up the core of Messina’s team. It is no accident that our core team has been with us for over 15 years! We take great pride in the ability to attract, train, motivate and retain high-quality team members.
Many local caterers must rely on temporary staff members to service their large clients. These temporary staff members are often not trained at the same level as permanent catering staff members. Messina’s is proud to be able to regularly utilize our own highly-trained professional staff to service clients.
Messina’s Special Event Venues
In addition to being a recommended caterer at some of the most prestigious New Orleans special event venues, Messina’s also owns and operates our own special event venues. These venues include Messina’s Runway Café, Messina’s at the Terminal, Messina’s of Kenner and the brand NEW The Rooftop on Basin. The Rooftop on Basin, New Orleans’ newest rooftop venue, just recently celebrated its grand opening in May of 2019.
