The History of Hoag’s Catering & Celebration Hall
Hoag’s Catering had a humble beginning as a small delicatessen on West High Street in Bellefonte, PA. The small deli was purchased by William J. Moerschbacher after he returned from the Army in 1947. Mr. Moerschbacher had previously worked at the deli while he attended high school.
Older son, Bill Junior and younger son Skip, each have held partnership in the business over the many years. A keystone of excellence in customer service, paired with a great “quality to value perception” are philosophies that have kept the business thriving & expanding, even in the most difficult of economic climates.
In 1994, Skip moved the catering business to its current location in State College, and established Celebration Hall. Perched on a hillside with views of Mount Nittany, Celebration Hall is a convenient and attractive banquet facility – headquarters to Hoag’s Catering. The banquet hall features six private rooms, when combined form two large rooms which can seat up to 250 guests each. Celebration Hall features banquet rooms with working fireplaces, natural lighting, an atrium lobby with a built in bar, plus outdoor balconies, a picturesque water garden, and plenty of free on-site parking.
Hoag’s Catering & Celebration Hall features both composed and customized wedding packages for all budgets and needs, as well as a full line of rental equipment. Whether you are looking for a full-service sit-down dinner or buffet, a casual backyard barbecue, customized wedding cakes, or tents, tables & chairs, allow Hoag’s Catering to be your one-stop wedding shop.
