Loree’s Catering: Something Special For Everyone
For the last 30 years Loree Ogan, chef and owner of Loree’s Catering, has fulfilled and exceeded her to her customers’ needs by staying in tune with the latest trends in the food industry. By listening to her customer’s needs she has built her company upon creating an individual, unique experience for each client.
Local customers from Ridgefield, Redding, Newtown and Bethel, as well as clients as far as West Virginia, clamor for her innovative cuisine, exceptional service and creative presentation. Using the freshest ingredients from local farms such as Holbrook Farm in Bethel and Short Farm in Sandy Hook makes food flavorful.
Catering For All Occasions With a Personal Touch
Loree’s caters events as small as an intimate dinner for two, and as large as corporate events for ten thousand, Ogan said. The largest event she ever catered was for 18,000 at the opening of Macy’s store at Pentagon Plaza in Washington D.C. Loree’s Catering has been featured in local newspapers such as The News Times and The Newtown Bee, as well as the nationally known trade journal, Cater Source. “Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous” host Robin Leach hired Loree’s to cater one of his events. Clients are referred by word of mouth or by attending a party or event she catered.
Last Saturday alone Loree’s had three different events booked in one day. The morning began at the Bethel Cycle, located at the newly renovated Bethel train station. The owner, Greg Pelican, hired Loree’s to create a breakfast spread for their bikers who were being filmed for a TV commercial. Later on that same day, Loree’s catered a funeral. The day ended on a happier note as two local residents celebrated their engagement with an outdoor poolside barbecue.
Bethel residents Brandy Hughes and Sean Hargraves were recently engaged and celebrating with family and friends. Sean’s mother Pat hired Loree’s to cater her son and future daughter-in-law’s engagement party.
“I hired Loree’s because I wanted good food and I didn’t want to have to think about anything. Loree took care of not only the food but also the bartenders, the servers and even the tent, so I could relax and not have to worry about anything” Pat said.
Loree’s takes care of ordering equipment, supplies, tents, tables, flowers, cakes and personalized touches that makes the day even more special. Weddings and events are held at Tarrywile Mansion or Hatter’s Park in Danbury, the Alexandria Room in Newtown or many other locations that Loree’s partners with.
In addition to their busy catering services, Loree’s café serves up freshly baked breakfast choices such as homemade muffins, croissants and morning buns. For the health-conscious Loree’s creates all-natural energy drinks and smoothies. Classic favorites such as egg sandwiches and Belgian waffles are available as well.
