About Belgio’s Catering
Tim and Tom Belgio were just 30 and 25 respectively when they decided to move forward with their dream of owning their own business. The appeal of a catering business originated early on during their early working days at the Naperville Centennial Beach. During those years, both brothers worked their way up from bathhouse attendants / maintenance workers to supervisory positions. Tim eventually helped manage overall Centennial Beach operations while Tom worked as concessions / maintenance crew leader. In that capacity, both brothers were responsible for customer service, supervising staff, managing daily operations and learning how to handle varying needs and varying crowds. They learned the challenges of staffing and food ordering based on crowd demand and realized that those types of challenges appealed to them.
Tom later went on to apply this knowledge as the manager of a local Naperville restaurant and during that time, met their future executive chef, Raul Armenta. Tim went on to develop his business knowledge by starting and running his own computer software business. After a few years, the brothers merged their respective start-up business knowledge and restaurant knowledge to found Belgio’s Catering. Tim and Tom Belgio opened the doors of Belgio’s Catering in February 2000.
