Christopher F. Ives


Over 30 Years Experience

New Jersey’s Sir Ives Caterers, headquartered in Monroe Township in Middlesex County, was founded in 1981 by professionally-trained chef, Christopher Ives.

Trained at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, RI and the illustrious Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, Chris eventually launched his own NJ catering company after working as a general manager opening restaurants in new hotels throughout the metro New York City area.

Still under his management today, Sir Ives includes off-site event planning and full-service catering for both formal and casual weddings, corporate meetings and business events and special occasions.

A catering philosophy focused on quality, service and experience

Chris says that providing clients with outstanding catering quality and service will always stand the test of time, whether you are seeking home catering or off-site catering at the destination of your choice.

“Helping clients plan and enjoy catered meetings, events and celebrations has always been my passion,” Chris says. “My team has been with me for a long time and we still get excited to plan and manage every wedding, special occasion and business event.”

“Sir Ives is New Jersey’s top off-site caterer because we are 100 percent reliable, have integrity and care about satisfying every client ─ from brides and grooms, to meeting planners and families celebrating bar mitzvahs and sweet 16s,” Chris explains.

Sir Ives proudly gives back to New Jersey

In addition to providing fresh and delicious cuisine for discerning clients, Sir Ives Caterers is always ready to step up and help the communities it serves. After Hurricane Sandy, Sir Ives delivered thousands of meals to first responders and families left homeless throughout Ocean County and Monmouth County.

Chris says there aren’t many locations where his team has not catered events ─ from racetracks and high rises to oceanfront weddings and corporate annual shareholder luncheons, Sir Ives has played a key role in creating delicious and memorable occasions.
