From the President, Gerald Abrams:

Abrams grew out my desire to own and manage a family restaurant in Edgecombe County, NC where I was born and raised. In 1974, my family and I had the opportunity to purchase a small restaurant in Tarboro serving southern cooked food. My son Jerry was almost 3 years old. Since that time, we now have 6 Abrams restaurant locations to serve you.

We began catering in 1974 to small groups which soon became larger and larger . We still cater to small groups because they are the people who have made us what we are today and we are grateful to them and will continue to serve them. We can accommodate groups up to 40,000 people, three-shift catering and events at multiple locations on the same day. We can offer everything that you would need for your event under one company. Take a look around our website to see what we have done for thousands of people. It is our pleasure to be of service to you and yours.

As we catered to groups, we soon learned that they were interested in having entertainment for those attending so we began our Amusements Division in 1974. Our catering and amusements operations are located in Tarboro, NC. It is still a family owned and managed business. My wife, son, two sisters and sister in-law all work with the company. My brother was part of the business until he recently retired.

We have many devoted, experienced and competent employees who have helped us to grow into one of the largest and most respected in the Southeast United States, catering mainly in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia but occasionally going to Rhode Island and Florida.

As the marketplace and our company grows and changes, one thing remains constant - our personal vision to provide our customers quality food and service.
