New Full-Service Commissary and Event Planning Location Expands Orlando Operations to Better Serve West Coast Businesses and Clients
Tampa, FL – (April 14, 2016) A former warehouse and office space located near I-4 in Tampa has been fully remodeled to accommodate the growing demand for Puff ‘n Stuff Catering and Events’ services by clients located on Florida’s West Coast.
Puff ‘n Stuff, a premier, full-service catering and events company that has been operating from its Orlando-based headquarters for more than 30 years, opened its new 32,000-square-foot facility located at 5804 Columbus Avenue in December.
The renovated space includes a large, open kitchen that overlooks a Chef’s Table that is comparable to a dining room setting in an upscale restaurant. It provides a perfect place for Puff ‘n Stuff clients to sample menu items selected for weddings or special events. The space can also be reserved for private functions or local fund-raising events.
The complex encompasses office space, a commercial bakery, 3,000 square feet of refrigeration and the latest technology available to commercial kitchens. In addition, there is an on-site commercial laundry, gasoline and diesel supplies for the company’s fleet of delivery trucks, back-up generators to ensure power during emergencies and industrial-quality dishwashing systems designed to handle the inventory of dishes, glassware and silverware used for intimate catered meals to major events accommodating thousands of guests.
“As business has continued to grow we knew it was time to make the commitment and the investment to add a second location in Tampa. We are now able to increase production and still provide outstanding customer service,” said Warren Dietel, Puff ‘n Stuff CEO and owner.
Puff ‘n Staff was started as a small pastry shop in San Fernando, Trinidad by Susie and Glenn Dietel in 1971. After relocating to Florida, they re-opened in Central Florida in 1980. Warren Dietel purchased the business from his parents in 2003 and gradually built it into Central Florida’s premier catering operation and a full-service event company.
Puff ’n Stuff Catering and Events has been creating memorable events in Tampa since 2010. Recent high profile events include the Republican National Convention that was held in Tampa in 2012 and the 2015 opening of RH (the new brand of Restoration Hardware stores) at International Plaza.
