Anna Marie & Mese
Family...Why we do it!

In 2008 Mese and Anna Marie Ugapo started catering as a way for Mese to leave the drudgery of a 9 to 5 job where he was simply put, miserable. He shared with Anna Marie how he wanted to live passionately and work in something he actually enjoyed.
 
Anna Marie having been raised in a catering family (3rd generation) and knowing her husband's love of food suggested they start a catering business.  
 
In only 8 short years Gwen Marlowe Foods & Catering has become one of Southern California's most sought after large group event caterers, catering events as large as 2,000 guests multiple times a year!  
 
With passion and true enjoyment of their craft Mese and Anna Marie have created a standard of high quality food and service that has become synonymous with the name Gwen Marlowe Foods & Catering.

When coming up with a name for our company we went through many options most of which were terrible!
 
Eventually we thought about the WHY behind what we do.  After that it came pretty easily.  We took the first names of our two oldest daughters Marlowe (our oldest child) and Gwen (our second oldest daughter and third child overall) and we felt that 'Gwen Marlowe" rolled more smoothly out of our mouths than 'Marlowe Gwen' and the rest is tasty food and great service history!
 
Marlowe is followed by Mason, Gwen, Jules, Tau and bringin up the rear is our little bundle of sunshine baby Anna Marie Amelia.
 
If you have ever enjoyed our services you can thank these 6 wonderful souls.  They are the reason behind every choice we make and the WHY behind our great efforts to improve, progress and succeed.

We Service All of Riverside, San Bernardino, Orange and Los Angeles Counties.  Will Travel To Other Locations For A Nominal Fee

Events

Here we highlight a few of Gwen Marlowe Foods & Catering's events we have serviced over the years
LuLaRoe Convention 2015, 1000 Guests
 
Easily the fastest growing clothing company in America today, we were extremely grateful to be chosen to provide food, beverages and desserts to their fashion consultants and guests.  Over a 2 day period our kitchen staff cooked over over 500 lbs of pork, 500 lbs of chicken, 200 lbs of corn, 200 lbs of rice, 200 lbs of rice noodles, 600 sandwich wraps, 100 gallons of lemonade and much more to feed the happy and completely satisfied guests.
 
Redlands "SummerFest" 2014 to Present, 1500 Guests
 
When catering for high school age guests it is a fine line to walk.  You have to come up with something that the staff will approve AND something the students will actually eat.  We chose our delicious and always satisfying Street Tacos with our housemade Chipotle Sauce and Green Goddess Cilantro Sauce.  Missioin accomplished.
 
LuLaRoe "Be The Magic" Event, January 2016, 300 Guests

Held at the beautiful ARTIC in Anaheim, CA. LuLaRoe once again hit it out of the ballpark!  Tray passed appetizers and desserts were served as well as food stations and several beverage stations featuring our Signature Hot Chocolate and Sipping Vinegars.  Shrimp Cocktail Shooters, Smoked Salmon on Cucumber, Bacon Wrapped Dates, Key Lime Shooters, Chocolate Mousse Shooters and many other options made for a great evening of amazing food and great company.
 
PropsAV - Multiple Events, 2008 to Present, 400 - 800 Guests
 
Since 2008 one company has stood by and supported us, PropsAV.    They are the most sought after company for audio/visual, lighting and sound for any and all events in southern California.  It is only natural that they would offer food to clients looking for a one stop company for their event needs.  They could have chosen any caterer and any caterer would have been ecstatic to work with PropsAV.  They chose Gwen Marlowe Foods & Catering. They keep us busy almost year round mostly in April, May and the holiday season.
