What They Say
Our Team
Marshall & Tasha Peters
Owners & Chefs

By Design Catering is owned by Marshall and Tasha Peters. They have enthusiasm and the expertise to exceed your expectations.


Here’s a quick bit about them. Marshall is from Washington D.C. and comes from a military family. The melting pot he lived in helped shape his love for cooking. He graduated from Johnson and Wales and off he went spending his twenties bouncing down the east coast from Maryland to Charleston, landing in Jacksonville in 2000.


Tasha spent her childhood traveling with her military family. The ethnically diverse military community was a great place to get exposure to cuisine that fuels creativity now. She also came to Jacksonville in 2000. The two met while managing for the same restaurant, and fell in love.


By Design Catering brings all the life and professional experience full circle. We love to collaborate with our clients to give them the perfect menu we can. The team at By Design Catering will take your inspiration and vision and design a menu that will wow you and your guests. By Design Catering always loves it when guests challenge us with the newest trends or something inspirational for them. The relationship between By Design Catering and our clients is the most important thing. We know planning an event can be very stressful. It’s been proven that hiring us helps relieve that stress.
