OUR TEAM

MAKES THE DIFFERENCE

Family members and loyal employees make up the core of Messina’s team. It’s no accident that our core team has been with us for more than 15 years. We take pride in attracting and retaining the best of the best because we know that personable, well-trained team members are the secret ingredient in catering success.

We are proud to be a family-run company with George and Stacey Messina overseeing all aspects of Business Development. George serves as CFO and Stacey serves as VP of Sales and Marketing. Their son Andrew serves as Director of Operations.
