The Salt & Sugar Co. Keeps Catering Clean with Organic, Natural Ingredients

By Kelly Church

Jesse and Alisha Nemeth are a Troy, MI married couple, parents and the owners of The Salt & Sugar Co., a catering service that focuses on fresh and local ingredients. With about 75% of their menu being certified organic, and the rest coming from the most natural sources available, The Salt & Sugar Co. won't use unnatural ingredients.

"We are a happy, little family focused on eating fresh, local, natural and organic ingredients," the couple said. "We aim to serve our community by giving them the very best and providing an alternative to eating locally in a more natural sort of way."

The Salt & Sugar Co. offers private chef services, catering, event planning and a food trailer. The catering and trailer menu includes fresh salads, pasta salads, soups and dinner entrees. Dinner plates come with chicken, pork, salmon or prime rib and two side dishes. Catering menus are typically crafted for 25-125 people but can be for as many as 200.

Jesse has been working in the culinary industry for 14 years. Over the years, he held high positions in restaurants specializing in wild game, steak and seafood, until he was ready to open his own business. The main driver behind The Salt & Sugar Co. was helping Jesse find relief from his grueling schedule.

"My husband was working extremely long hours and our family desperately needed a change," Alisha Nemeth said. "We brainstormed ways to have our own business that he could work at full time, and spend more time as a family and from there the idea of The Salt & Sugar Co. was born."

The company started as a cottage food business and Alisha made freshly-baked goodies out of the couple's home. After spending some time working on Jesse's days off from his work as corporate executive chef of Morton's Steakhouse, the duo had built up enough of a reputation and client base in order to make this their full-time business.

"Chef Jesse's love for food, enthusiasm for life and his strong desire to please his clients is the perfect combination for any client looking for a once-in-a-lifetime personal chef experience," Alisha Nemeth said. "Chef Jesse won't disappoint."
