Welcome to SandyJames!
The name SandyJames is derived from decades of fruitful collaboration between former partner and culinary associate Sandy Kuba and current proprietor James Bartle. If you've been a resident of West Palm Beach within the past ten years, you may recall our humble beginnings at the corner of Southern Blvd. and Dixie Highway. During the summer of 2007, we proudly outgrew ourselves and were invited to take residence at the National Croquet Center in West Palm Beach. Currently, not only are we the exclusive caterer at the NCC, but we are also the most sought-after caterer from Vero Beach to Miami.
