Spring and New Beginnings

Welcome spring a wonderful time of new beginnings and here at Preferred Sonoma Caterers we are thrilled to be starting the season in our brand new facility. After 2 years of plans, permits & building we have unpacked and moved in to our new home at 416 East D Street

Let me tell you it is incredible! We have worked hard to keep the style and frame work of the circa 1911 building while bringing in all of the new and modern touches that a catering company needs. From our redwood wall to the hand finished floors the facility is beautiful. As you walk in the front doors there is such a feeling of space, air and light, that gives us room to breath and grow. The kitchen is working out splendidly, we have added another cooking station, so we have plenty of space but can still work as the group we enjoy being. The brand new refrigeration is up and working, there are no more worries of the Friday night brown outs from Downtown.

We have posted more pictures of the new building on our smugmug page

The space is filling quickly, but we know there is still room to grow. All of us are looking forward to our upcoming event with Petaluma Ecumenical Project on May 1st, A Taste of Summer. I have enjoyed creating a number of new items for this special event.

  1. Amber, the new space is gorgeous! It was so nice being able to see it last weekend- and to visit briefly with you- I know it is that time of year again. I so wish I lived closer so I could work in such an amazing kitchen (or at least pop in and order some of your amazing food- and Mom's cookies of course). I am so happy for you and your team.
