About Us

Creating Memorable Events

Dunn Events started out over 40 years ago as Dunn Catering by Alfonso Cates Dunn. He shared his cooking talents with friends and family initially as a hobby. As his skills became more in demand and his customer base grew, he decided to turn it into a lucrative business. He was later joined in the business by his wife Louise Latisha, and together they became one of St Louis' most sought after caterers. Later, their children and grandchildren joined the family business continuing to ensure quality food and service to the community. In 2012, their son, Derek Dunn, expanded the catering business to include event planning and consulting and changed the name to Dunn Events. Derek is committed to serving his customers 100% whether it's for a small dinner party or a large convention. You can count on him to meet your event needs. 

Versatile Service

Over the years, the Dunns have catered to many individuals, businesses, community organizations as well as famous celebrities and politicians. Some of their catered events have included Mayoral Conferences, The Miss Universe Pageant, Pope John Paul II, Stevie Wonder and 3 United States former Presidents.
