After leaving Miami’s prestigious Miami Club, Joy Wallace started a small catering company to treat South Florida with the kind of inviting hospitality she is loved for.  The launch of the company began with a 1,000 seated dinner for Exxon mobile in 1988 and with its success, Joy began making a change in the way South Florida experienced catering.  As the company continued to grow, A Joy Wallace opened three additional divisions.  A Joy Wallace Design was added in 2000, adding a second layer of services to our off-premise business and opening a relationship with South Florida’s premium hotels.  In 2003, the company secured contract catering services with the famed Vizcaya Museum and Gardens to operate their Cafe and Shop.  In 2004, Joy formed their Disaster Relief Services division, landing several catering contracts in Florida and the Gulf Coast.  Today, A Joy Wallace is one of very few catering companies with full turnkey site capability in the state of Florida, helping those in need when disaster strikes.

Today, the company is comprised of over 60 full time employees and over 150 part time employees.  A Joy Wallace averages over 450 events annual between off premise catering/design, on premise design and events at the Vizcaya Cafe & Shop.
