The mother-son team of Barbara Cotter and Derek Grillo contribute a blend of considerable talents to Struck Catering. In 1979, Barbara infused the Struck Café in Worcester with her creative spirit, expressed through the ever-changing menu choices, chair styles and plate designs. The family business prospered, and in 2001 evolved into the successful off-premises catering service it is today. A collaboration of complementary skills, Barbara and Derek work side by side, providing contemporary cuisine to their Central Massachusetts patrons. Together with their professional staff, Barbara and Derek ensure clients, and their eager guests, relish every Struck Catering event with freshly prepared, hand-crafted choices, artful presentations and discreet service. Central to Struck Catering's philosophy and mission is giving back to the community they serve. Whether it is fighting hunger, battling cancer or supporting the city's youth, Struck Catering is proud to take part in such worthy and fulfilling endeavors.
