The Roy-El Catering Family

Roy-el Catering was established in 1987 by Quentin & Sherry Nungesser – and it remains a family owned & operated business to this day. Their son & daughter, Marty & Brea, were both running events by the time they were teenagers & have been actively involved ever since. Marty manages all of our large special events & corporate contract accounts.  Brea completed a degree in Fine Arts at Webster University & currently runs our business office & event planning, as well as her contract accounts.  Several of the third generation are now contributing on events as well, and are certainly a great asset to the Roy-el family.  Sherry & Quent are still active in the business as needed, but are confident in the capabilities of the next generation and are looking forward to enjoying a little more time off. 

All of our food service managers are licensed food service handlers through the state of Illinois.  We have an excellent Health Department rating for the past 34 years from St. Clair County.  All staff and equipment is fully insured.  Is your caterer licensed & insured?

Roy-el started out with one very unique rotisserie grill and the idea of being able to grill large quantities of meat without losing quality. The demand for their grilled and barbequed meats surpassed even their expectations, and in a short time they had to move to a much larger facility, invested in two more grills, added a mobile kitchen, and several more vehicles to keep up with their growing business.

Roy-el has been serving up great grilled and barbecued meats as well as many other wonderful entrées and great fun ever since. Company picnics complete with games and clowns, corporate events, weddings, birthdays, open houses, golf tournaments, whatever the event, Roy-el Catering can take care of your needs. They have done upscale dinner parties for as few as 12 people and large corporate events serving over 7,000 meals in a single day!

Roy-el has also added an emergency services division with the ability to feed several hundred to several thousand people with their mobile kitchens.  These kitchens are fully equipped and self contained and can be on the road within a matter of hours.

Roy-el Catering maintains memberships with the Chambers of Commerce in Belleville, Mascoutah, Millstadt, O’Fallon, Red Bud & Swansea.

Roy-el Catering was voted Reader’s Choice #1 Caterer in the Belleville News Democrat three times!

What our Customers Have to Say....

The Art of Catering

Catering has been a way of life for my family for over 34 years.  Serving delicious food to fabulous people is in our blood.  I’ve spent a life time learning this business from the generation before me & enjoying the many friends I’ve meet through catering their events.  I hope that we can help you plan your next event!

The Art of Great Food

I was very young when my parents started Roy-el Catering so I basically grew up with the business. After college, I pursued my major in photography while still helping Roy-el when needed. As the business continued to grow, I became more involved with Roy-el helping people plan their perfect event. I love helping people make their event special and making sure everything is exactly like they want. It makes my day to receive a call or thank you note saying how perfect everything, especially the food and our staff was. I look forward to helping you with your event.
