John & Marisa


Marisa has spent her life in the food business. She learned early on the gratification of a good meal. Her recipes are created from her love of food, relentless experimentation, and an adamant refusal to serve anything that doesn’t meet her very high standards. She has a passion for food itself, its history and its relationship to the cultures associated with it. That passion has carried over into the world of plant based catering where she has discovered the joy of cooking for not only vegans, but for those who still have misconceptions about what a plant based meal can be. Our clients are always welcome to work directly with Marisa to create a menu that is perfect for them.

John has worked in the event industry for the last 20 years. While working for a large NJ catering company, John learned the many facets of off-premise catering. His expertise lies in event sales, coordination and management. He believes there is nothing more important than the sincere honest relationship you create with your client… and communication is the key to all of it. John takes pride in the attentiveness and genuine care he gives to all his clients. Events are a fun, creative and happy business.. He feels it’s his job to listen to the vision of his client and help bring that vision to reality.

John & Marisa have know each other for over 30 years. They have been best friends, business partners and now, life partners. They combined their passions and talents in 2018 to create Green Cart Catering – New Jersey’s only exclusively plant based catering company – knowing it would be challenging and not sure if the industry was ready… but ready to rise to that challenge!
