Calling yourself "Marvellous" is nothing short of pretentious, unless of course, your last name is "Marvell". Then perhaps it's OK to be the...
The Marvellous Catering Company
Jack loves to cook and loves to feed a crowd even more. He and his wife Jeannine were busy raising their 7 kids and in there spare time volunteered his culinary talents to their church events and friends weddings. Within a few years he knew this is what he wanted to do professionally, so they built a kitchen in the basement of their house and Marvellous Catering was born. For 10 years Jack cooked and hauled food out of that basement, while Jeannine (the social butterfly), marketed the business to anyone who would listen. Seeing the growth of the business and knowing that the neighbors would not tolerate much more, they built their dream kitchen complete with a hot kitchen and bakery, on Columbia Lane in Provo.
Today Jack and Jeannnine spend their days watching over the business, going to the movies and enjoying their 22 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild.
Robynn is the oldest of the Marvell children and "self appointed" boss. For many years she lived out of the state and hoped that some day she could work with her family. In 2004 she moved to St. George, Utah and started her own small catering business. After observing the growth of the Provo business, she took a leap of faith and joined her family. She now uses her creativity working with customers, planning weddings and other special events.
Robynn and her husband Tom have two grown sons, a teenage daughter and one grandchild.
Todd is the 2nd to the oldest. He is our "foodie" and music aficionado. He worked for many years in a commercial bakery, that experience has been very valuable to our business. He is now our head chef, tirelessly creating 1000's of meals everyday. He never turns down an opportunity to travel and try local fare.
Todd and his wife Jodi, who currently works in our office, are the parents of five children.
Jeff is number five of the seven Marvell kids. After graduating college, working as a custom cabinet maker, he was finally sucked into the vortex of Marvellous Catering. Starting out as our purchaser, Jeff has discovered that he really belongs in the hot kitchen. He is enjoying his new position as our prep cook and is looking forward to learning more recipes.
Jeff and his wife Chelsea have two children.
Jed, the youngest, is the Marvellous Catering Super Hero. He runs the fastest and can lift anything in our kitchen! On every clock in our kitchen is written "on time every time" and we are, thanks to our expeditor, Jed. He also acts as our HR department and handles all of our staffing needs. His dedication to our company is immeasurable as we move forward with the second-generation leadership.
Jed and his wife Jessica, who keeps our books in order, are the parents of three boys.
