A bris and other special occasion is a milestone event, one of which lifetime memories are made. It deserves to be planned to absolute perfection, with meticulous attention to every detail.
“I’m here for my customers to help them with whatever they need,” he says. “I am present at every simcha that I cater, overseeing every detail from beginning to end. We cater at different venues throughout the Five Towns, Great Neck, Long Island, Manhattan, Brooklyn, as well as in homes. My customers know that I will be there and that every aspect of the catering will be outstanding.”
Neither snow nor sleet nor hail—not even the demands of a hectic erev Pesach schedule—will deter Joel from being present at a bris or event he is catering. Such was the happy situation last erev Pesach when Gotta Getta Bagel did a stellar job of catering the bris of a precious baby boy. (Mazel tov and much nachas to the parents and family!)
