CULINARY BLISS. MAJESTIC LOCATIONS. UNFORGETTABLE EVENTS. Those are the pillars on which THANK GOODNESS IT’S SOFIA CATERING was founded in 1989. Since then, the brother/sister team of Sofia Riley and George Marinos have taken TGIS Catering from a 1,000 square foot kitchen in Long Beach to the forefront of event planning and catering in Southern California. At TGIS, we believe every event is an opportunity to savor outstanding cuisine, experience innovative designs and leave your guests anticipating.
