About Chef J.R. Laub

Laubster’s Catering is the physical manifestation of the ingenuity and dedication of owner, J.R. Laub. With a degree in Sports Management from the University of Florida, J.R. began his career in 2005 with the Daytona Cubs - the minor league affiliate of the Chicago Cubs. He was charged with providing a nutritious lunch and dinner to 60 athletes every day, while working within a somewhat meager budget. J.R. loved his job - forming close friendships and spending time with star players such as .

In turn, the baseball players LOVED his cooking - so much so, that when one of his Cubs got traded to the Blue Jays - he didn’t want to give up J.R.’s delicious meals. On the day that the player returned to Daytona to play for the opposing team, he called J.R. personally and requested one of his delicious cheeseburgers. While J.R. was thankful for the compliment and wanted to help his old friend, it just wasn’t feasible for him to provide his services for a single lunch. Instead of conceding, the player called back a short time later to let him know that he had checked with the entire team, and that they “were in.” J.R. cooked for the whole visiting team that day, marking the very beginning of his catering services. Once word got out about his nutritious and mouth-watering food, it wasn’t long before each opposing team began calling ahead requesting to be fed.

Encouraged by the incredible reviews from all of the players, along with the support of his family and friends, J.R. decided to expand his catering business once the baseball season ended. Laubster’s Catering is now available to serve all of Volusia County and its surrounding neighbors. The experience and connections that he’s gained along the way have molded J.R. into an amazing chef, and an efficient, reliable caterer.
