About Us

about us « home

Catering by Design is a boutique catering company created by the husband and wife team of Jeff and Kathy Windt. Our focus is on quality food (nothing prepackaged or instant is served), custom events, and attention to detail with exceptional service. Jeff and Kathy are personally involved with every event that they cater, showcasing their professionalism and passion in the smallest details for each event.

Jeff is a classically trained Executive Chef with over 23 years experience in private country clubs, fine dining, and upscale casual restaurants. His passion for food and extensive culinary background make for a perfect fit in our multicultural city.

Kathy’s focus is on detail and creativity, making your dream become a reality. Her continual search for fresh new food and event trends, has positioned Catering by Design as the leader in cutting edge catering for Southeastern Minnesota.

Catering by Design believes in giving back to their community. The primary focus of our community support goes towards “Join the Journey”, which is an annual walk for breast cancer awareness. Breast cancer can affect our mothers, sisters, wives, friends, and loved ones. The money raised stays in Rochester, MN and goes towards programs and projects that promote breast cancer awareness and provides support to individuals on their breast cancer journey. Catering by Design not only financially supports “Join the Journey”, but we are proud of our employees who volunteer their services to support this cause.
