Wally and Janet Collins along with their two daughters, Erica and Jessy, organized Collins Catering & Events in Orlando, Florida on June 13, 2007. In August of 2008, the Collins' bought what was once known as Gooding's Catering from the Gooding's Corporation. Wally created Gooding's Catering in 1996 under the Gooding's Corp. and made it one of the largest catering companies in Central Florida.
The Collins family has over 40 years of combined experience with catering events and in the food & beverage industries. Some of that experience comes from catering events for the Champs Sports Bowl, the Capital One Bowl, the Children's Miracle Network Classic at Walt Disney World, the 1999 - 2009 WDW Marathon Weekend, the Orlando Magic, University of Central Florida, and many, many more.
