SCOTCH PLAINS Union Catholic is very excited and proud to announce a partnership with a new food vendor, Four Seasons, which will provide breakfast and lunch for students and faculty during the upcoming school year.

“We are very excited to announce our new relationship with Four Seasons,’’ said Union Catholic Assistant Principal Dr. Jim Reagan Jr. “They come to us highly recommended and we look forward to working with them.’

Four Seasons was established in 1988 by brothers Joe and John Basile, who grew up in Staten Island. The family owned business, which operates out of Marlboro, NJ, also includes Joe’s wife, Lori, and John’s wife, Maria.

“It all began with two brothers and a dream to change the negative stereotype that is associated with and attached to school cafeteria food,’’ said Lori.

The Basile family is thrilled and delighted to be working with Union Catholic, which is the 16th private school Four Seasons has partnered with in the tri-state area.

“We’re ecstatic,’’ said Lori. “It seems like a wonderful place. The people are very friendly, the kids we’ve met seem great, and the Principal, Sister Percylee (Hart) is so impressive.’’

Joe Basile said Four Seasons, which has brought its own experienced kitchen staff, including a chef to Union Catholic, has a simple motto.

“We don’t serve anything that we wouldn’t eat ourselves,’’ said Joe. “That’s our motto everyday.’’

What separates Four Seasons from other food vendors?

“I think we come with a little more variety and fresh and homemade things,’’ said Joe Basile. “And it’s the quality of our food products and the level we want to serve it at. We make sure our food is as fresh as possible for everyone. It will be changed out for every class. It won’t ever be something that has sat out from two classes ago.’’

As for breakfast, Joe said there will be a hot breakfast everyday consisting of different kinds of sandwiches, French toast, scrambled eggs, pancakes, home fries, and there will be muffins, cereal and pastries.

In a press release, Four Seasons wrote, “we are happy to partner with Union Catholic to bring fresh, new culinary choices to delight the senses and enhance learning. We hope that our scratch cooking on site, use of fresh wholesome ingredients, and a custom-tailored menu will encourage students to eat in the cafe. Students will be served quickly and efficiently giving them more time to gather with friends on campus and enjoy their selections. We are happy to introduce homemade smoothies- prepared with fresh fruits and vegetables.’’

For added convenience, Four Seasons will accept credit and debit cards, apple pay, android pay, and cash, and they are also open to food suggestions.

Welcome to Union Catholic, Four Seasons.
