The visionary owner and the pulse of TaDa!

Before becoming a caterer, Shelleylyn Brandler's passion for food and extravagant parties was legendary. A welcome to one of her famous affairs became a much-coveted invitation. With the encouragement of her family and many friends, Shelleylyn began her foray into professional catering by founding TaDa!

As word of mouth spread about Shelleylyn's unique vision, TaDa! rapidly became the caterer of choice for many in the entertainment, music, and sports industries. Her journey has taken her from catering discrete tete-a-tetes for some of today's biggest stars in Hollywood to feeding a cast of thousands on North America's largest rock and roll tour.
