Suzanne Smith

It all started in 1978. Suzanne Smith and another parent thought the 420 students in Saints Peter and Paul School deserved something more than a sack lunch everyday. For six years, once a month during the school year, the two mothers came to the school and cooked a hot lunch for the students. In 1982 a woman asked Suzanne if she could do a rehearsal dinner for a wedding.  She said she could and Food for Thought Catering became a full time business.

“Fortunately I had a mentor,” said Suzanne. “The owner of the popular Swiss Bells restaurant in Wheat Ridge took me under his wing and showed me how to manage food and control costs.”  Today Suzanne caters everything from small intimate dinners for just two to events for up to 250.  What is her favorite? “I really love taking a meal to older people or those recovering from an illness.  My staff loves those very special occasions such as graduation parties and rehearsal dinners.”
