Sally's introduction to culinary arts began at Dover High School with her instructor David Coons. She developed a love for cooking and creating her own dishes. With the opportunity to work under Lorrie Grossman, a local kosher caterer in Dover, her education in Kosher style catering began. She started her own business and honed her craft doing Kosher and Non-Kosher events ranging from 25 to 500 people. As early as 2012 Mezzanine Catering LLC was born. Mezzanine has since opened a production kitchen in Dover on Dover Point Road.
Sally grew up in Dover, NH and married her husband Chuck, also from Dover. They raised 2 sons, Zach and Eli.
It’s no great mystery where Zach developed his passion for food, with some of his fondest memories coming from spending time in the kitchen with family. Following high school, he attended Johnson & Wales University, graduating with degrees in Baking and Pastry Arts, Food Service Management, and Entrepreneurship. After college, Zach managed several different restaurant concepts, before finding his way back to the family business full time. he is excited to be a part of Mezzanine’s continued growth and is looking forward to expanding on what Mezzanine has to offer.
Zach lives in Lee, NH with his wife Jessica, son James, and dog Etta. When he’s not catering, you can probably find him at the local ice arena coaching youth hockey.
A Seacoast native, Brittany traces her love of cooking and creating to her Grandmother’s kitchen. She still recalls fond memories from watching her cook family dinners and even getting to help her with some of her special treats. After high school Brittany began working full time in the kitchen and attended Le Cordon Bleu in Cambridge, graduating in 2017. With an externship at the Joinery in Newmarket and several years experience at The Galley Hatch, Brittany joined the Mezzanine team in early 2019.
She brings a passion for great food and commitment to fresh seasonal products. When not in the kitchen, you can find her with her wife Kristy bringing their dog Archie on the big next adventure.

One of her favorite parts of the planning process is bringing in couples for their food tasting, where she gets to interact with them on a more personal level. It is important to Victoria that her clients feel listened to; she gives very careful time and attention to each wedding, ensuring that all catering expectations are exceeded when the special day arrives.

Growing up, locally on the seacoast of NH, Bethany lived a mile from the beach and spent hours outdoors, as a kid, playing in the sand. Summer is still her favorite season!
Upon graduating from UNH, with a dual degree in English and Early Childhood Education, Bethany taught Kindergarten for 5 years before she and husband, Josh, started their family. While she stayed home to raise their three children, she kept busy, by nannying, tutoring and completing her Master’s in Education.
In mid-2021, Bethany joined Mezzanine as event staff, working weddings on weekends, and quickly discovered how much she loved working with the team! When an administrative position came up, she jumped at the chance to play a larger role in the company. Bethany brings strong communication and grammar skills to the team as well as a willingness to help in any way, when needed.
When not “on the clock”, Bethany enjoys baking, a nice glass of wine, and not being in charge of ‘what’s for dinner’. As she loves the summer, her favorite things to do are visiting the lake or ocean, nature walks and eating ice cream with her husband and three children, Ava, Jonah and Tessa.
