And the opening of Love at First Bite Catering in Huntington Beach, California.
Love at First Bite Catering, which has become a leading local catering business, celebrates 35 years of success this year. To commemorate this significant achievement, they hosted a gala party at Rainwater Gallery in downtown Huntington Beach combining this celebration with their official ribbon cutting event.
Attended by representatives of the offices of US Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, Assemblyman Travis Allen (74th District), Assemblyman Matthew Harper (74th District), State Senator Janet Nguyen (34th District), City of Huntington Beach Mayor, Barbara Delgleize and of the Huntington Beach Chamber of Commerce, this event was widely recognized and supported.
"It really is remarkable when a business can sustain itself for 35 years - it doesn’t always happen," stated Patrick Brenden, Former Chair of the Chamber of Commerce and City Councilman for the City of Huntington Beach. He continued, “ You have poured your heart and soul into this business and that’s what it takes to make a business successful.”
Starting as a two person, family owned business in 1982, Love at First Bite Catering now employs a staff of 50 and last year provided customized catering for over 1,000 events. For this celebration, they created an extensive menu showcasing their catering expertise. As stated by Patrick Brenden, “We all have had the opportunity to sample your food here today and it’s fantastic. Everyone agrees with that.”
“It’s really exciting to be celebrating our 35th anniversary with our fabulous staff, loyal customers and such an exalted group of dignitaries,” states Stacy LaBrake, Co-owner of Love at First Bite Catering. “But be assured, this is just the beginning. Huntington Beach is a fabulous city and we look forward to being part of the philanthropic and social scenes here for many years to come.”
The owners and employees of Love at First Bite Catering are well known for giving back to the community. John LaBrake, Co-owner and Head Chef of Love at First Bite Catering states “Our main goal is to give back to local schools and kids athletics teams. If we can help keep the kids engaged and off the streets, then we are playing a small part in keeping them out of trouble.”
When asked about their specialties, Stacy LaBrake commented, “Comfort food at an affordable price - that’s what we do best. And BBQ is in big demand for us at Love at First Bite Catering. In fact, we have created our own Ace LaBrake ‘almost famous’ BBQ sauce that has proven to be a huge winner amongst our many clients.” And those lucky enough to attend the 35th anniversary celebration and ribbon cutting event, took a bottle of this fabulous BBQ sauce home with them.
