to Twin Oaks Caterers
Oaks Caterers opened it’s doors in February of 1989,
with two generations of off premise catering experience
under his belt the founder Luke Pelligra (Dad) opened
Twin Oaks with a partner Pete Manero. We were officially
Twin Oaks Caterers, Butcher and Deli with a retail butcher
shop run by Pete, the catering operation run by Luke
and the deli run by Grace (Mom) and Rose (Pete’s wife).
It wasn’t long before the kids got involved, I (Mike)
was a recent graduate from the Culinary Institute of
America, sister Sandy was around to help, and brother
Rich had just graduated from high school a few years
earlier and was eager to get involved. It wasn’t long
before the catering operation was in full swing.
After a few years it was time to expand the catering
operation and we decided to close the retail portion
of the growing business and put all of our resources
into off premise catering. Fast forward 15 years and
Luke & Pete are retired, Mike and Rich have taken
the reigns and Twin Oaks Caterers is well established
a s one of New Jersey’s Premier off premise catering
family involvement has changed, we now have a great
staff that we consider family and they care about the
business and it’s customers as if it was their own.
For over twenty years we have strived to make every
event special, always improving menu’s, presentation
and excelling in customer service.
If you’re a long time customer, we thank you very much
for your years of continued support. If you’re a new
client, we ‘d like to welcome you to the family and
you can be assured we will do our very best to make
every event as special to you as they are to us.
