Opening a small business can be a risky venture and it takes a lot of hard work and dedication to keep it going.

Staying in business for 25 years is a real accomplishment in the business world.

Absolute Catering is marking a quarter of a century providing catering services to both private parties and corporate functions.

The company recently moved to a new location on Highway 10, just north of Orangeville and has expanded with a new store front open to customers. 

“We’re celebrating 25 years,” said owner Beth Vincer. “We have a kitchen in the back but our new endeavour here is the store front.”

The new location has the bonus of being more visible to people passing by on the highway.

Absolute Catering serves a variety of customers who need catering services for many different events.

“We do lots of corporate events, lots of weddings. There’s a lot of people who call and pick up food or we drop it off. We do baby showers, and just about everything. The nice thing about us is we have standard menus. I always recommend something I like and customers catch on to that,” she said of helping clients decide what type of fare they can have at an event. “We do an excellent butter chicken that’s just hit the market. They love us for our versatility and our freshness. What is really popular is our Greek menu.”

Ms. Vincer got her start working at several restaurants in the area.

“I started at the Millcroft Inn in Alton. I was in the pantry. I did catering at another location.”

She took a break to start a family then got into catering as her own business.

“I did start off in the kitchen and I really liked catering because I could do what I loved and all of a sudden I was talking to people. I loved meeting all the people. I found my perfect niche.” 

In the new store front there is a variety of frozen dinners and an assortment of baked goods on display. Ms. Vincer said the plan is to branch to having an assortment of fresh products as well. 

Absolute Catering is located at their new location on Highway 10, across the road from the Mono Plaza.
