Meet Paola Petrella of Two Peas Inc. in Van Nuys

Today we’d like to introduce you to Paola Petrella.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
The amazing journey began in December 2005, right after Chef Paola gave birth to her second child.

Chef Craig and Paola Petrella partnered in 2006 to launch their very own high-end meal delivery service & boutique catering business, TWO PEAS INC.

What started with one client quickly boomed into many more! Today we are proud to be considered LA’s finest meal delivery service. We have grown solely through word of mouth and the amazing recommendations of our day to day clientele.

Two Peas Inc. is a Catering & personalized meal delivery service company, that creates healthy & delicious food based on our client’s specific dietary guidelines. What sets us apart is our unique approach to cooking and menu design as well as our very personal customer service.

Chef Craig and Chef Paola Petrella, were both trained under Chef Norman Van Aken, one of the most respected and acclaimed chefs in the country. In fact, that is where the Two Peas met!

Chef Norman instilled only the highest standards of cooking. This mentality is applied day to day in the Two Peas kitchen.

Today, we provide our convenient and healthy services all around LA and to the most exclusive and demanding clientele.

We make healthy eating accessible for everyone in Los Angeles. Delivering daily to everyone’s doorstep, office or film set. We love to make people’s life better with our delicious services.

From foodies, for foodies.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It certainly has NOT been a smooth road.

Nothing great comes smooth….

As opposed to many other start ups, Two Peas started with bare bones and no investments.

The economic drop of 2008 made it almost impossible for us to continue. We persisted and continued our path by offering our clientele only the best meals and customer service attention.

We learned many lessons along the way.

These lessons have only taught us to perfect our craft and get even stronger at the game.
We realized that the only thing that mattered was our integrity in serving our clients, our product and nothing else.

Creating a new concept with new ideals is never easily understood or accepted.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Two Peas Inc. story. Tell us more about the business.
Our company, specialized in all things delicious.

Whether it is a simple catering order or a large gala, our main focus is making it delicious.

We provide several different services,

Healthy Meals Personalized and delivered daily.

Full Service Catering service, making it easy and accessible for anyone to have a party in their home or work, without worrying about anything.

We are known for preparing delicious food and several signature times that have become staples at our events.

Most proud of never giving up and providing services to the most elite clients in LA.
We cook for the biggest Hollywood stars, athletes, moguls, and all kinds of beautiful people that simply want amazing food at their fingertips. Proud of training my team from scratch and instilling a great passion for cooking and the hospitality industry with in all who form part of our team.

What sets us apart is that we do not provide a conveyor belt experience. We personalize each request to our client’s specific needs. Our clients feel right at home with us. Some of our clients have been with us since we first open doors in 2005. Till this day, we pamper them daily. That is something to be proud of!

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I do not believe in LUCK or Bad LUCK.

We believe in the almighty God. He has brought us through this journey for a very meaningful reason.

To HELP and SERVE others.

Serving others must be done with sincerity and not interest.

Chef Paola and Chef Craig are both extremely talented.

With only their trust in GOD they have been able to maintain strong through the struggles of owning a business.

    Chef Paola & Chef Craig,

    I am so, so very happy and excited for you and your continued success! In all honesty, though, none of this surprises me . . . you are simply the best and I’ve always known your persistence would be rewarded on many levels.
