Uncle Darrow's Catering is a division of Uncle Darrow's Inc., a Los Angeles based corporation engaged in the restaurant and confectionary business. The company was originally founded as a confectionary manufacturer in 1988, using traditional family recipes that were handed down over generations.
Uncle Darrow's entered the restaurant business in 1994, when an opportunity arose to acquire the balance of a restaurant lease. This gave birth to the Uncle Darrow's Cajun/Creole Eatery originally located at 5301 West Venice Blvd., in Los Angeles. The ultra-casual, open air eatery featured Southern delicacies such as file' gumbo, fried farm raised catfish, jambalaya, red beans and rice and of course po' boy sandwiches, all at down home prices.
The tradition continued, with the opening of our next location at 2560 S. Lincoln Blvd., in Marina Del Rey in January 2001. The Company prepares the majority of its products out of a 1,200 square foot commissary in Los Angeles. Uncle Darrow's also offers competitive prices to the wholesale market.
Because of our commitment to excellence, we are constantly striving to develop ways to be on the cutting edge, so that we can identify the needs that are going unfulfilled. Our "blueprint" plan encompasses many innovative and clever ideas, which we strategically implemented to make the most of those opportunities that measure up to the standards we have established for Uncle Darrow's.
The entire Uncle Darrow's family shares this vision and carries forth the ideas that continue to serve as the impetus for the unbridled growth that we have come to accept as the "UNCLE DARROW'S WAY OF LIFE!"

Legend has it, many years ago during a time in history when mere survival was synonymous with good living, and the word entrepreneur was not in vogue, a candy company was born in a little river parish town down in the bayous of Louisiana, and operated out of a small cottage. As Uncle Darrow’s put it, “Ya jus’ do whatcha gotta do”.
This story is now being regarded as one of AMERICA’S SWEETEST SUCCESS STORIES, and has been recognized as a great family tradition. It’s believed the Uncle Darrow’s story started in the late 1800’s when this plantation field hand began using discarded sugar from a local sugar mill to make a sweet treat for his kids. Because the candy was such a fine delight, fate saw fit to match his self-styled product with the mouths of the multitude, thereby creating a lasting celebration of confectionery genius.
Uncle Darrow combined the best blend of nuts and other natural ingredients in preparing this gourmet delight. Experience contagious enthusiasm when you turn back the hands of time and relive pleasurable moments from the past through Uncle Darrow’s products. We've taken a simple idea and made it special, and from that special idea, we’re making it unforgettable. Now let's fast-forward to February 1, 1988!
From the inception of what seemed to be a grandiose idea over a decade ago, a small group of committed entrepreneurs have struggled to keep their dream alive. Actually, the idea was simple and merely entailed taking a dormant part of their heritage and bringing it back to life in contemporary times as a vibrant business entity.
We at Uncle Darrow's have turned this venture into adventure. All of us here have been endowed with the "vision". But, we are never overwhelmed by the grandeur of our vision.
