For more than forty years, Leiters' Fine Catering, Inc., has provided high quality food, outstanding service, and a commitment to excellence to clients throughout the Washington County area and beyond. This family-owned and operated business initially started as a root beer stand in 1947. Based on the Dual Highway at the Richardson's Snack Bar, the business was owned by Sam Leiter, his sister and brother-in-law.Sam assumed management of Richardson's in 1949.
With a new building addition in 1960, curb service was added to the thriving business. Whether purchasing a tasty sandwich and a root beer, or simply hanging out with friends, Richardson's was a popular spot for all ages. In 1968, the already successful business branched out into catering, a venture that has since evolved into the full-service event company that Leiters’ Fine Catering is today.
Samuel Leiter and wife Virginia "Be" Leiter left Richardson's in 1976, continuing to cater from a diner on Pennsylvania Avenue in Hagerstown. In 1982, the Williamsport Volunteer Fire Company offered their banquet and kitchen facility as a home base for Leiters' Fine Catering, Inc. In 1988, Dave Leiter, the second generation, became a full-time employee, utilizing his knowledge of the food business from his previous employment at Richardson's Snack Bar. Teri,Dave's wife, joined the catering team in 1994.
Currently, owners Dave and Teri Leiter provide services for a wide variety of events ranging from intimate dinner parties to memorable, one-of-a-kind wedding receptions and large corporate picnics. Leiters’ takes pride in working with clients to expertly design events that fit their unique vision, ensuring that menus, rentals, staffing and décor are personalized and equally pleasing to both the eye and taste buds. Thanks to the unyielding foundation and positive reputation set by Sam and Be Leiter, present-day owners Dave and Teri, as well as the four Leiter children, Becki, Jeremiah, Jessica, and Samuel, keep this third generation, family-owned business going strong. The Leiters' Fine Catering, Inc. mottos are "It is Our Pleasure to Serve You," and "One Call Does It All!" --snip--
