When George Jewell founded George L. Jewell Catering Services (now Jewell Events Catering) in l967, he had already honed his exuberant and innovative style through years of experience in traditional dining service. He was schooled in hotel management at Acton University and Oxford, in his native England. He gained indispensable skills and knowledge while apprenticing at some of Europe’s finest hotels, including Brown’s in London, George V in Paris and The Grand Hotel in Rome. Working for the elite London caterer, Searcy, heightened his interest in and knowledge of off-site catering. Working first out of a small florist shop, Mr. Jewell began serving afternoon tea sandwiches to his clients who would come to the shop to discuss their orders. The first event he ever “catered” was a tray of hors d’oeuvres he prepared and delivered himself.

From that first hors d’oeuvre tray grew a multi-million dollar company, now operating out of a 40,000 square foot facility, with a fleet of vehicles and enough in-house equipment to serve a formal sit down dinner for 2000 people. But after almost 50 years in the industry, George Jewell still engages in his hand-on management style and continues as the spokesman of the company. His impassioned enthusiasm for special events and his dedication to excellence set the tone for the entire company.
