Our Story


I first would like to Thank You for taking the time to visit my site. My name is James McCarthy and my love for creating food began at an early age delivering unique dishes to my friends and family. It brought so much joy to sit back and watch people’s faces light up from the fresh flavors I was combining together. Listening and responding to their feedback has brought me to where I am today. My culinary journey then blossomed when I enrolled at Cape Community College along with working in a well known Sports Bar and Grill in Millville, NJ. That is where I met the love of my life Katie. She was a waitress/bartender and I was the kitchen manager. We both had such a love for food and challenged each other to come up with new and creative dishes. That is where we derived dishes based on Tex Mex BBQ, Italian and Asia Fusion. Soon after I thought back to that joy I would see on my family and friends faces after they would have one of my dishes and I wanted to take my passion further. I became a culinary teacher at Millville Senior High School. I wanted to take my drive and passion of food and instill it to young kids to hopefully inspire them to push their limits. My love for business ran deep within me and Bolt Catering was formed. While delivering authentic meals with fresh ingredients for our events, Katie always remained focused on the quality and presentation creating the perfect balance. Katie soon after followed her passion and studied Health and Physical Education and became an elementary teacher in Millville. Life at this point was super crazy and hectic, having a business working full time and being blessed with three beautiful kids Benjamin, Elliana and Penelope and we absolutely loved every minute of it!

With our combined knowledge in the food industry and Health/Physical education we finally have launched our newest edition of Healthy Meal Prep for the person on the go. We create each week a curated selection of healthy meals to offer for that person or family that is on the go or simply wants a gourmet healthy meal. Thank you once again for visiting Bolt Catering and we hope one day to be a part of your memories at your special event!

Happy Eating,
The McCarthy’s
