Gallucci's Catering - Adrielle and Jeff Flinders
Gallucci’s Catering was founded on October 8, 1988 by Ronald Gallucci. Located in the back of a small delicatessen in Tacoma, Washington, the catering company started by producing boxed lunches for schools and offices throughout the city. Several years later, Ronald Gallucci grew the company to offering the finest in catering and specialty foods and has grown into a premier catering company. Gallucci’s Catering is on the list of most of the finest venues throughout the Puget Sound and surrounding areas. In August 2013, at age 49, Ron Gallucci lost his life to a heart attack. It was very tough on family, friends, and all of those that knew this great man. The company continued to operate under the reigns of Ron’s wife, Treia Gallucci.
In March 2015, Adrielle Flinders purchased the company from Treia Gallucci. Adrielle had previously worked along side Ron for six years, shadowing him and learning everything he had to offer. Gallucci’s Catering continues to offer the same quality of food presentation, food quality and service. Having catered over 1800 Weddings, 1700 Luncheons, 700 Christmas Parties and 850 Corporate Parties, Gallucci’s will produce a truly memorable experience for any business, social event or wedding.

Celebrity Cake Studio
Celebrity Cake Studio is a boutique cake shop that specializes in artistically designed wedding and occasion cakes. It is family owned and operated by Odette and David D’Aniello and Mary Ann and Lance Quitugua along with cousin Wallace Bolo, the “Baker Supreme.”
Odette and Mary Ann are third generation bakery owners who literally grew up in a bakery and often joke that instead of a silver spoon, they were born with a silver spatula in hand. It is with this expertise and their love for the craft of cake decorating that Odette and Mary Ann opened their first retail bakery in 1999 in Lacey, Wa. In 2004, the family purchased The Cake Studio, Tacoma’s premier cake boutique. The two stores consolidated to become what is now Celebrity Cake Studio.
Retaining the best of both shops, Celebrity Cake Studio has customers raving about its delicious made-from-scratch products, attentive customer service and beautifully designed made-to-order cakes. It is now the most highly recommended cake shop in South Puget Sound and has recently been voted Best Cakes in Western Washington.
