Pearson's Catering

Pearson’s Catering has been serving Delicious Details to the Central Florida area for over
15 years, and we’re bringing our fresh approach to Pearson’s Cafe in downtown Orlando!


My name is Kim Pearson, Executive Chef & Owner of Pearson’s Catering and Pearson’s Cafe. I love to cook, have great passion for people, and enjoy when people love what they eat. I am a Florida State University graduate with a degree in retail merchandising & a Johnson & Wales University, magna cum laude, graduate with a Culinary Arts degree.

My culinary career started at the Ritz-Carlton Buckhead, Atlanta, Georgia. After working under French chefs, I broadened my professional skills by working in a variety of restaurants. I also helped open the café at Florida Hospital’s Celebration Health, where I designed menus, produced special events, and taught children’s cooking classes. My credentials & references are outstanding & I have been serving the Orlando area since 1994.

Stop by our Cafe, located in downtown Orlando, next to Citrus restaurant on North Orange Avenue! We’re known for our house made top round roast beef, and turkey cranberry gourmet sandwiches, as well as great coffee offerings from local roasters like Downtown Credo and Chef Bob’s RS&H Roasts.

My name is Dan Shier, Co-Owner of Pearson’s Catering and Pearson’s Cafe. I have over twenty-five years of experience in sales, marketing and management. I am originally from Pittsburgh, PA and I attended both Rio Grande College and Middle Tennessee State University. I joined the Pearson’s Catering team in 2011. In my spare time, I enjoy golf, water sports, professional football and spending time with Kim.
