Meet Our Team

Since its inception in 1929, All Occasions Catering has maintained a reputation for providing a personalized dining experience with unique and delicious food options. But what exactly makes All Occasions Catering so great?

The people!

Mark Andersen

Owner

All Occasions Catering is owned and operated by Mark Andersen, who has been passionate about food since he can remember. His family was in the food business, so he grew up with an appreciation for good food provided by people with a passion for quality service.

My mission was simple, really. I wanted to offer a superior product and great service, but I also wanted to give people an experience. And I think the way you accomplish that is with great people who work hard, who care about the food and want to deliver a memorable product and service.

Megan has been working in the catering industry in various capacities for many years, but she’s most grateful for having had the opportunity to learn from the exceptionally talented team at AOC. Megan is a big fan of a night in and loves reading and watching movies, although she’s too much of a chicken to handle horror! She also enjoys going to weekly bar trivia with friends.

She has always enjoyed watching everything come together for a wedding and helping to reduce stress for the couple on their special day. She is a self-proclaimed nerd, and in her free time likes to play a variety of video games. Her passion though is crocheting, and she has made everything from stuffed animals to blankets and hats and scarves. Rebecca and her mom spend the year crocheting and collecting items to donate to Hope House in Waukesha.

Samantha Mackay

Executive Sous Chef

Sam enjoys the chaos of working in catering. She loves being creative, whether that’s creating new menus, inventing unique dishes, or developing improved process and efficiencies. When she’s not busy in the All Occasions kitchen, you can find her outside in the sunshine. She enjoys going to music festivals and concerts, stringing up her hammock between the trees, playing video games, and hanging out with her cats. Her favorite quote: “Every day is a new day.”
