Hello from

Local Gourmet Catering

Local Gourmet was founded by Chef Wayne Schilleci Jr. Chef Wayne is no stranger to the food service industry. He founded his Schilleci's concepts in Kansas, then moved back home to Houston, and recreated the brand, which still exists as Schilleci's New Orleans Kitchen, in Market Street of The Woodlands.


Founded Schilleci's

Schilleci's was originally founded under the name Schilleci's Bakery Deli & Catering. The concept changed twice. Once to Schilleci's All American Cafe and then to Schilleci's Po Boy Shop.

Schilleci's New Orleans Kitchen

Schilleci's Po Boy Shop was so extremely successful, that the Schilleci family expanded the concept, and relocated it to Market Street under its new name, Schilleci's New Orleans Kitchen.

Local Gourmet

Chef Wayne Schilleci missed being in the kitchen, returned to his roots, and founded Local Gourmet Catering by Chef Wayne Schilleci.
