Chef Serge and Mary Krikorian started out with a small carryout and delivery pizza restaurant known as Sergio’s Pizza in 1994. They grew that business into a well-known local hotspot, which eventually led them to their first catering business, Dinner’s Ready Catering.
The catalyst that led to Serge and Mary opening a catering business was a request for catering made by a mother at their eldest’s son’s baseball game. Inspired, they launched this unspoken dream with only a 1,200-square-foot space that had just one stove, one oven, and one cooler.
Today, their catering space encompasses 10,000 square feet, including a professional kitchen, office spaces, and a warehouse of decor items used to elevate the visual presentation of the team’s delicious art.
Almost every business has a set of Core Values that are posted on the walls and put in the employee manual and then forgotten about by everyone who works there.
At Vibrant Occasions, we try to live our Core Values on a daily basis in the most positive ways possible. Our goal is to create an AWESOME WORK ENVIRONMENT where staff are recognized as Vibrant’s most valuable asset. We are happy people making people happy.
At Vibrant Occasions Catering, we foster an environment that attracts and retains exceptional staff who are passionate about what they do. Our Culture Club embodies the principles of Heart Leadership, recognizing that our most valuable asset is our staff. We celebrate their contributions to the company and to one another, fostering a sense of belonging and purpose.
We firmly believe that when our team is happy, it translates into unforgettable experiences for you and your guests.
We also cater banquets, fundraisers, private chef events, and pretty much any other type of gathering you can imagine!
We also have a mobile kitchen available that can travel anywhere in the state to provide high quality menu items such as steak, lobster, and other things that lose quality when prepared off-site.
We love action stations where our team can interact with guests as well!
We recommend starting to choose your caterer and menu anywhere from around 8 months to a year before your wedding date. There are a few things that come first- the date & the venue for sure!
My title is the “Director of Community & Vendor Relations” but my team refers to me as the “walkie talkie!” Two things that I love the most about what I do- my team, and the connections I get to make.
I get to participate in community events, I’m active with 3 different Chamber of Commerce offices in Central AR. I get to meet with vendors and learn ways we can improve & help each other be as sucessful as possible.
My team is absolutely what keeps me coming back every day. We truly care about each other as whole humans. Having a safe & encouraging environment to foster these relationships is incredible.
