It was such an honor and  privilege to get to know Phyllis and Teresa during our meeting!  Beautiful souls that are down to earth and dedicated to continuing Fran’s legacy.  I also had the pleasure of having a wonderful lunch prepared by Phyllis and Teresa.

Hartford Girl: How was City Fare Catering created?

Phyllis + Teresa: City Fare Catering was started by Franseca Reale.  Fran, along with her sister, Phyllis Reale Risley and, Teresa Preziosi, opened City Fare in Hartford’s South Green Neighborhood in 1988.  Subsequently, Fran founded and served as Creative Director of the Children’s Culinary Institute of Connecticut in 1992.  In January 2011, we lost Fran to breast cancer. Today we offer catering and private dining (forty max in our store front location).  City Fare continues to give back through fundraisers, donations, children culinary classes, and volunteer work.  We take pride in our community and are always looking for new avenues to keep ourselves “busy.”

Hartford Girl: Why did you choose Hartford?

Phyllis + Teresa: Fran loved Hartford!  We’ve been in this very location for the past 26 years. Our hope is to continue Fran’s legacy by sharing her love of cooking and community involvement within the Hartford community.  City Fare has such a great space. It’s just a struggle now. We hear it time and time again that  people do not want to come into Hartford for various reasons.  We would love to do meals to go again, but it’s just location, location, location!

Hartford Girl: What is your biggest challenge with running City Fare Catering in Hartford?

Phyllis + Teresa: Culturally for music and arts, nothing happened in Boston or New York unless it happened in Hartford. It was like if it happened and survived in Hartford, it could happen and survive anywhere. Things are no longer the same. When Fran had the meals to go, Hartford was definitely alive!   There was foot traffic from doctors from Hartford Hospital, attorneys and judges. It would be wonderful if we had a second location for foods to go.  That would sustain our catering business.

City fair services are awesome and they doing really great job and would like to appreciated with them rather most students lack confidence in themselves, hence they cannot produce any good assignment paper. Moreover, the slow learners are more disadvantages and especially if they are dealing with a tutor who does not care about their performance. But those who have commitment and dedication, they are good to go.
