Boxcar40 was born in September 2018 when Chef Paul Suplee intersected his passion for the culinary arts and his desire to bring scratch-American foods (ok, we do have a few cheats) to the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

A star was born; and not the chef. The experience. The buzz. The excitement. The dream that is Boxcar40!

Our mission is to execute events in which our client feels like a guest at their own party. With a penchant for innovation, the finest ingredients and warm hospitality, boxcar40 has quickly become one of the Eastern Shore's premier caterers. As a full-service catering company, we offer professional staffing, bartending services, rentals and event coordination.

We'd love to chat and create a culinary experience your guests will truly delight in. We promise you an event that people will talk about for a long, long time.

Take a gander at our menus. And if you decide to sit for a tasting, you will see that it's even better in person!
