Our Story

Born and raised in the 19th ward in Rochester, Lorraine was the third and youngest daughter of Dolores and Vincent Serpe. She graduated in 1978 from St. Agnes High School where she cooked for the sisters, nuns and one priest, Father Cushing.

Lorraine went on to Nazareth College to get a bachelor's degree in Business Administration and Management. After graduating in 1982, she started Lorraine's Lunch Basket. This was located at 121 Park Ave. Lorraine stumbled upon entertainment catering when Chuck Mangione played at Eastman Place several years ago. Her company was the backstage caterer. This started the launch of the business Lorraine's Coastal Catering in 1990. This was when she started traveling with the Grateful Dead. She then relocated to 8311 South Clinton Avenue, where she sat twenty-two people.

In 1994 Lorraine married her best friend, David K. Miller. God has blessed them with two beautiful children, Paige and Bryce, who are an important part of the staff serving in a variety of ways to assist their hard working mom. Lorraine's main commissary is located at 777 Culver Road where she and her husband have a restaurant/party house where all of their memorabilia is displayed.

In 2006, Lorraine became a forerunner in the gourmet frozen food business. She has created her own line of gourmet dinners with seniors and caregivers in mind., Her philosophy is that "when you reach a certain age in life, all you want for is good food".

This became so popular that their team developed meals for diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol and high blood pressure. They received their U.S.D.A. inspection number and continue to produce thousands, which you see in grocery stores today.

We welcome you to our home and may God bless you and your family.
