John Johnston: Owner and CEO
After years of working various positions in the Country Club world, John decided to open his own company. Because of his expertise and profound understanding of special events, AYS catering quickly rose to success.  His rare talents and ability to adapt have sustained that success. John has made working with AYS a guarantee that your event will be beautiful and paramount. On the personal side, John enjoys being with his family, working with the local Rotary club, and travelling.

Alice Oldenburg: Co-CEO and Creative Dynamo
Alice began catering kids parties decades ago. Her creativity with décor, menus, activities, and marketing fueled the success of her business. Several years later, she met John and the business ideas began to flow. A partnership was inevitable for these two. Alice brings her own flair, style, and finesse to AYS catering. She is the major creative force behind the beautification of our events, as well as our up-to-the-minute menus. As business partners, John and Alice fit like two puzzle pieces. In her personal life, Alice loves to spend time with her daughter, stay active, and experience other cultures.

Charan Cooper: Office Manager
Charan is an extremely well-rounded employee. Her understanding of our company is sharpened by her many years of experience working as a restaurant brand manager and 15 years of direct sales experience. Charan helps with many of the behind-the-scenes aspects of a privately owned food-centered business. Charan’s eagerness to help everyone and her versatility make her an irreplaceable part of our team. Family is first to Charan, and in her spare time she likes to go on dates with her husband, and spend time with her daughter and grandkids.

Josefina Sanchez: Executive Chef
Josefina (“Josey”) has been a chef for over 20 years in hotels, country clubs, and catering. She is an absolutely astounding force in the kitchen. Josey is enormously dedicated and diligent in her craft. Josey loves to cook, and catering offers her the chance to do that on a large scale while keeping her on her toes with different menus. We joke that she has an iron stomach, because nothing phases her! In her spare time, Josey likes to work in her garden.

Danielle Oldenburg: Assistant to CEO, Event Captain, Nutritionist
Danielle has undertaken almost every position here at AYS catering. Seeing all aspects of the catering business has made her an expert in the field. Having Danielle on your event team is yet another guarantee that your event is going to be first-class, from the behind the scenes work like polishing silverware, to the front of the house feng shui of your event. While working for AYS, Danielle completed two degrees in nutrition. In her personal life, she loves to spend time with her diverse family, boyfriend and dog, while staying active and travelling.
