Welcome to Thrive Catering Co.
Once upon a time our business name was Catering by Gail. After operating as Catering by Gail for 8 years, in 2018 Chef Jered & Lisa Evangelos decided it was time to bring their own brand to the table. Lisa and Jered worked with, then eventually bought the business from founder Chef Gail Williamson. The Evangelos' are so thankful for all the opportunities the name Catering by Gail brought their way and are excited to finally have a name all their own that really communicates who they are and what they do.
To Thrive is to grow or develop, to prosper, flourish and succeed. We are in our ninth year of catering. We believe we continue to do these things as caterers, chefs, servers and event staff. We look forward to continuing to serve you with the same high standard quality of food, service and staffing that Catering by Gail has always been built upon, as Thrive Catering Co.
What our clients think!

We got married July 20th and I can’t express more wonderful things about Thrive Catering Co. Being we were engaged for almost two years my mind changed a lot and Lisa was an absolute delight to work with. The food was absolutely amazing and I have gotten so many compliments on how great it was. Our gift opening was full of “did you taste that chicken” comments. By far the best meal we had in a long time. Thank you for being a part of our day and providing excellent service from start to finish. We hope to have the opportunity work with you again.

It was absolutely FANTASTIC! Everyone raved about the chicken...Our plates at the table were all 'clean' after lunch!!
Chef Jered's service was incredible - everything was delivered on time and hot! Flavor and quality of food was excellent - the wild mushroom sauce was to die for!! It was enjoyed by everyone, as evidenced by folks gobbling up everything. I had several comments after the lunch about how great the food was. As well, Chef Jared also 'saved' me by throwing in some squares for dessert---something I had forgotten. It was greatly appreciated.
We had a couple of people that weren't able to make it...........so we do have a few leftovers.....but I fear a fistfight among staff to 'claim' those for lunch today (hee-hee). All in all, please pass on our thanks to Chef Jered for the wonderful meal! We DEFINITELY will be using Thrive Catering again for our staff functions!

The whole team was incredibly helpful from start to finish, answering all our questions and keeping us organized. They were accommodating to guests with dietary restrictions and were patient with us as we made changes along the way. We couldn't have asked for a better team to cater our wedding! The food was delicious, ready on time, and cleaned up before we knew it. I have nothing but praise for Thrive Catering!
Thrive Catering did a fantastic job for my wedding! Many guests have approached me to tell me how excellent the food was. Lisa was fantastic to work with. I can't tell how much it means to me that I was able to have a properly cooked gluten free meal on my wedding night. If they were unable to do this I would have been extremely sick all night. I also didn't feel at all like I was missing out on the delicious glutinous food everyone else was enjoying because mine was so delicious! I can't thank you guys enough for this. I would recommend Thrive Catering Co. to friends and family or anyone looking for some fantastic food at a good price!

I wanted to send along a little thank you for the exceptional service and delicious meal that you prepared for our Christmas Banquet. I have never gotten such rave reviews about any caterer we have used in the past, so you can bet that you will be the first one we think of whenever the need should arise in the future.
