Creative Full-Service Caterer in Fort Lauderdale

Design imaginative events that delightfully inspire, create memories and build connections.

Founded in 1988, Joy Wallace Catering has been cultivating creative plates and producing innovative event experiences for over 30 years.

While catering has certainly evolved since our inception, our goal has always remained the same: Design imaginative events that delightfully inspire, create memories and build connections.

We do this in a few ways:

We hire the best talent.

We source fresh ingredients locally for bold flavor.

We always challenge the status quo, using imagination to innovate.

Our award-winning team is always at the forefront of catering service and innovation in Fort Lauderdale, Miami and nationally—with the recognition to prove it. You can trust us to help you produce an event you and your guests will remember for a lifetime!

Creating Inspired Connections with Events in Ft. Lauderdale

Our team is like family. And when you host an event with us, you become a part of that family! We believe that every event is meant to create intrinsic connections that make a difference. Through hearing your stories, understanding your vision and getting to know you and your guests, we aim to create connections before, during and after your event.

We come together with local Ft. Lauderdale event venues like Bonnet House Museum & Gardens, Living Sculpture Sanctuary, the NSU Art Museum and more to help plan an event that will create inspired memories and meaningful celebrations!


Our menu items are designed with explosive flavors to tickle the tastebuds of every guest on your list. Using locally sourced and sustainable ingredients, you can expect fresh and creative cuisine every time.


We believe food should look as good as it tastes. Our visionary chefs plate each meal as if it were a work of art. And for them, it’s their way of expressing their passion and fervor for their trade!
