We started from humble beginnings…

A one-woman operation, that began in 1992 by our namesake Colette Coffman, focused on cakes and small catering jobs, delivering the finest products and services in the industry. Before long, Duane Greenleaf became co-owner & word spread that Colette’s expanded to meet customer demand with our wonderful cuisine & impeccable service.

We handcraft menus, source locally and customize creative cuisines according to specific event needs, styles and desires. At Colette’s Catering & Events, we are known for putting a twist on classic dishes and enjoy creating our own take on traditional favorites. We start with your vision, add our planning expertise, our knowledge of the latest trends in exceptional, innovative cuisine with our passion for food, style, entertainment and design. We have a real passion for food, people and celebrations and pride ourselves in creating an amazing experience from start to finish. We know that food is at the center of every great party. Colette’s believes that the food should speak for itself and nothing brings people together like a great meal!
