Welcome to Chef Mario's Personal Chef Services!
Welcome to all of our new Subscribers!
Hi!! My name is Holly and I am the general manager and Pastry Chef here at Chef Mario's. We are so excited to see all of you signing up to our Website! You will be the first to know when the menus go live each week! I promise I won't bombard you with continuous e-mails that are full of nothing! Trust me, my time is precious, just like yours! So, if I send you something, it is totally worth your time!
We are so grateful for your support and business! We are working ever so hard to keep our doors open and our kitchen buzzing! Chef and out kitchen staff are continuously working to make each week tasty and wholesome, as well as beautiful. After all, you eat with your eyes before you ever get a bite in your mouth! We want it to look as good as it tastes!
I am so glad you have found us and are giving us a try! Please remember that I am just an e-mail away if you have any questions!!
In exciting news, the E-Commerce Platform is actually in the works!!!! You have no idea how excited I am about this! I know it will make ordering easier for All of You and make the administration end for me so much quicker... leaving me more time to get in the kitchen and do some Sous Cheffing and Baking. Watch for additional Ala Carte goodies in the coming weeks. Baking is my passion and one of my areas of expertise. I can't wait to show you!

Finding the New Normal with Covid-19
The world of Catering is in a bit of an upheaval right now and we are rolling with the punches here at Chef Mario's. We do understand that many of the extreme measures we are taking now are temporary, but we take them seriously because we care about the Health and Well Being of our Staff and Clients.
What exactly does that mean?
Well, to us it means we respect the increased safety and sanitation measures that are required at this time and look for ways to keep doing what we do best, which is making delicious food for our clients.
We are having to adjust our staffing, scheduling, delivery options, set-ups, pricing, and pretty much everything! Please read below to see how our main business lines will be changing temporarily.
Temporary Adjustments to Business Operations
Personal Chef Delivery Service
Our Personal Chef service has become our mainstay now that the Corporate Catering and Private Catering Opportunities have shifted and no longer offer many opportunities for us. Personal Chef is where Chef Mario got his start so many years ago and something he has done as part of his business ever since! So, it was an easy transition!
We started an on-line ordering platform available on our Website (see above) that gives clients the opportunity to order from a weekly menu in quantities of their choosing. We offer delivery service for orders over $79 and a discount if you choose to Pick up the meals from our kitchen!
We have determined that our Cafe will remain closed for the time being. We will reevaluate in September. We are terribly sorry for any inconvenience this causes our customers, but the level of business is not enough to support remaining open. Thank you for understanding.
Our Corporate Catering will start back up again soon, but will be limited at this time. We will be working first with our Premier Clients (who have been with us for years.) And, then will open up catering options for new clients as time passes.
Options are limited to Individually packaged meals at this time. We do have both Hot and Cold options. Pricing has changed with these new guidelines and with the increase in food prices we are experiencing and with the increased packaging required for the individually portioned meals.
New Menus will be posted within the next couple of weeks.
Private Catering will also be limited, but we will take inquiries on a one-off basis. As with Corporate Catering, new menus will be posted in the next couple of weeks.
