Founded in our hearts more than 20 years ago.

As a family owned business, Essential Catering Solutions, Inc. has always committed to supporting our community with our time and financial donations.

We believe our food and our service is life to all in this and surrounding communities. We regularly give food to our local shelters who feed the less fortunate right here in our city and county. Lighthouse Ministries has been our chosen recipient for the last three years and counting. Our company as a whole and our team participates in community fundraisers and actively engages in non-profit activities, and supports these organizations in word and in deed. 

We believe we are blessed beyond measure as a company and as the people within it because we choose to give of our resources, time and gifts that God has given us. We provide discounts and work with shoe string budgets and often provide our catering services free of charge to non-profits helping others in the same way.

Our founders Dorcas L and Darrian R Crumbley, Sr., have always had open hearts to give both financially and of their time and have instilled this into their son's who are growing into the future leaders of this organization. Dorcas has served as past board chairman of Florida Dance Theatre, a local fine arts non-profit that teaches dance to many who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford it, at nominal or no charge, and together she and co-founder and husband, Darrian have given more than a quarter of million to local charities and non-profits here in the local area.
