Serving School Meals

Under his leadership, it led to the opportunity to exclusively prepare fresh meals daily, undertake concession responsibilities, catering for safety meals, manager meals, board meetings and holiday gathering for over 500 employees of Kimberly Clark in Fullerton. With the family motto of providing quality foods for everyone to enjoy, this led to the introduction of serving school meals to charter schools.

Daughter Gaby Tiscareno
2007 was a time of change for both Gaby and the family business. Gaby needed to switch gears from working full time to focusing on her eldest son who had been diagnosed with ADHD. She knew she had to supplement her income along side taking care of her family. Her parents were growing their small catering business at a new location, a private venue, Westminster Manor. They invited Gaby to join the Tiscareno’s family business. It was then that she was able to create a system of working from home for her parents and taking care of her son. Over time her son had shown tremendous success with his therapies and Gaby was able to enter the workforce once again. Networking and growing the brand Tiscareno’s Catering and Events quickly became Gaby’s passion. Creating memorable events for clients, entertaining new menu concepts and aligning with influential people in the event industry proved to be just what Gaby and the family business needed. Gaby has aligned Tiscareno’s Catering and Events with some of the most sought after venues in Southern California and has grown a fantastic network of industry professionals to give her clients the best possible experience while planning their event. Although everyone in the family plays their part in keeping the business moving forward, you’ll mostly be greeted by Gaby when entertaining an order or taking part in a food tasting or venue tour.
