Jeremy & Karla


Hello Friends! 


We are Jeremy & Karla and we founded Carmelita Catering Co. to share our love of food with Northwest Arkansas. Now, we are blessed to share our talents with you  by serving our own family recipes.

Our love story..


Jeremy and I met on an online dating site on 11/11/11 and we got married 9 months later. I knew I had found someone very special when after winning a game of Loteria (Mexican bingo, in Mexican Bingo we yell out Loteria, which means "I won the lottery!") Jeremy got in one knee and proposed! Check out the Facebook video!  A few days later he surprised me again by asking my daddy for my hand in marriage in Spanish! After this, I knew it was game over for me, I had found the one!

After 20 years of service as a US. Marine, Jeremy retired and he founded Devil Dogs BBQ in San Diego, CA. It was during this time, that I saw a passion in him I had never seen before. I saw how his food connected us to our clients in a very special way. He is his passion for sharing his food with others that inspired me to give life to Carmelita.  

Now our hope is that our food continues to create beautiful memories for you and your loved ones for many years to come. 

With love,

Wedding Catering

I have nothing but GREAT things to say about Camelita Catering Co. They were responsive, getting back to me within minutes of my first inquiry, their communication was excellent, and best of all...THE FOOD WAS AMAZING!!! Their presentation was beautiful, and having them onsite making the food was an experience. Weeks after the wedding and I am still hearing about how great the food was!! Thank you, Camelita Catering Co, you made our event something really special!!!
