As you may have read in the Lancaster Newspaper, Upohar has merged with Catering by Christina, and I now have a new business partner! And we make a good team.
In October, we announced that Christina Maldonado, chef/owner of Catering by Christina, would join Upohar as a business partner. After working side-by-side for many years, and collaborating occasionally, in January 2017 we will be one company.
This merger has greatly expanded catering services and our global repertoire. For our customers, this means that you can now experience Upohar in many different ways, through:
- Christina’s Criollo — this is our stand at Lancaster Central Market (formerly known as Catering by Christina) where we serve authentic Puerto Rican cuisine, featuring Christina’s family recipes
- Global Flavors Catering — our catering branch features both global and traditional American cuisine, and a wide range of services
- Food Truck — we can travel to many more events now
- Restaurant (coming in 2017)
This partnership has also allowed us to increase our capacity. We were able to move out of the shared commercial kitchen where we had been working, into our own catering kitchen. And this month, we have been able to cater two huge events, each with more than 400 guests. Both are significant milestones.
We are excited to do more events next year from our new space!
