Who Are We

Chef Serge Krikorian and his wife, Mary, started Dinner’s Ready Catering 20 years ago.  Having catered thousands of events over the years as Dinner’s Ready, they launched Vibrant Occasions Catering — a new name that more accurately depicts the level of food and service provided at your weddings and social events.  Vibrant Occasions will cater to all of your guests’ senses and provide a memorable dining experience.

Our sister company, Dinner’s Ready Express Catering, is perfect for your corporate or drop-off catering needs when you need great chef-prepared food brought to your event without any extra services or with only back-of-the-house service.  Under the leadership of founders and owners Serge and Mary Krikorian, along with their amazing staff of professionals, Vibrant Occasions Catering continually strives to establish long-lasting relationships with our clients by treating them the way we would want to be treated.

How It Started

Chef Serge and Mary Krikorian started out with a small carryout and delivery pizza restaurant known as Sergio’s Pizza. They grew that business into a well-known local hotspot which eventually led them to their first catering business, Dinner’s Ready Express Catering.

The catalyst that led to Serge and Mary opening a catering business was a request 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 5,000 square feet, including a professional kitchen and a warehouse of decor items used to elevate the visual presentation of the team’s delicious art.

Serge and Mary’s values of integrity, innovation, excellence and family have created loyalty among many employees, customers and residents of Central Arkansas. With the ongoing support of the community, Serge and Mary were able to open their premier wedding catering business — Vibrant Occasions Catering.
