A Word from the Owner

Ursula den Herder


Thank you for taking a break from your busy schedule to visit with me here—I’d like to take a brief moment to share our story with you.

Each day at Abby’s Catering, we consider it a pleasure and privilege to continue our reputation of preparing the finest, impeccable cuisine and culinary presentations for our aviation customers, corporate offices and deli patrons, whether they are traveling on their corporate, private, or executive aircraft, eating in their board rooms or enjoying a hot cooked meal with us in our facilities.  A true desire to meet your catering needs is what motivates our family to carry on this tradition to our loyal clientele.

My aviation career began in Europe when, while employed at an advertising agency, I was asked to coordinate a television commercial being filmed inside a Lear Jet.  It was during this time that I met the pilot who eventually became my husband, and as a stewardess, we logged many hours in the air together, traveling worldwide aboard several types of narrow and wide-bodied private aircraft.

Many years of valuable, in-flight catering experience allows us to anticipate the needs of all our Abby’s Catering customers and flight crews.  We are experts in the areas of food safety, packaging, transport, protocol, as well as the presentation of American and International cuisine being served in-flight, offsite and within our facilities.  As our company grows, we are structuring and have structured additional divisions, namely, Abby’s Corporate Catering, Abby’s Deli & Take Out, and Abby’s Management Services, to meet the diverse needs of the public.

Every delicious meal that is prepared is done with your satisfaction in mind.  I have such joy when I receive a telephone call, email or letter from a customer expressing how much they enjoyed their meals.  Ultimately, this is what it is all about!

For over three decades, our purpose has remained true and unwavering.  Our mission is to provide the best food containing the healthiest and freshest ingredients, and create a memorable culinary experience, whether you are relaxing in the comfort of your aircraft, having a business luncheon with clients, or stopping by our delicatessen on your lunch break.

On behalf of my dedicated family and employees, we sincerely appreciate the rich history of your years of patronage that has made our ventures a success.  We absolutely love what we do!  If you are considering a caterer, please let us have the pleasure of being introduced.  Thank you and I look forward to having a conversation with you soon.
