La Prima Catering celebrated its 25th anniversary on Thursday, June 28th with a festive outdoor event and recognition of seven employees who have been with the company since its inception. The event took place by La Prima’s organic garden at the company’s corporate headquarters in College Park, MD.
“We are thrilled to celebrate 25 years of growth and success,” said La Prima President Dave Evans. “From our beginnings as a small sandwich shop and corporate takeout catering business, we’ve expanded into a company that now includes five regional kitchens, elegant special events catering, a healthful school lunch program and a large corporate catering division.”
“We are also proud to honor seven hardworking, dedicated employees who have been with us since day one,” Evans added. He presented each employee with a certificate of appreciation and other gifts.
College Park Mayor Andrew Fellows, clients, friends and employees attended the catered event, which also included horseshoes, bocce and other games on the lawn, as well as tours of La Prima’s kitchen and organic garden.
La Prima’s organic garden is just the beginning of the company’s ever-growing commitment to sustainable practices. In addition to using eco-friendly, recyclable materials, La Prima composts more than 1,000 pounds of food waste each week. Through the new Seeds to Celebrations initiative, in cooperation with Open Book Farm of Myersville, MD, La Prima will cater a grown-to-order, farm-to-table wedding reception in late September.
