About Us

Chef Serge Krikorian and his wife, Mary, started Dinner’s Ready Catering 19 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.

Serge and Mary Krikorian and Family

In 2002, not long after being approached by a mother at their son’s baseball game, Serge and Mary Krikorian decided to expand their hospitality service by opening their catering kitchen in a 1,200-square-foot space with just one stove, one oven and one cooler. At the time, they owned the popular carry-out and delivery pizza restaurant, Sergio’s Pizza. 

Today, their catering space encompasses 5,000 square feet, including a professional kitchen and a warehouse of decor items used to elevate visual presentation.

While growing their business Serge and Mary had three sons who grew up working for the family business and continue to help out when their schedules permit.

Vibrant Occasions Catering is not only family owned but is family oriented. It’s important to Serge and Mary that there be a work-life balance and for their employees to be treated as family. Some of the staff have recruited their family members to join the team as well!

Serge and Mary’s commitment to their customers, as well as their employees, has allowed them to grow their business and become leaders in the catering market in Central Arkansas.
