A 25-year hospitality saga emerges with new purpose.
With over 25 years in the hospitality business and after successfully leading her catering business to a full-fledge event services company, Jennifer Delaye, CEO of The JDK Group, endured a personal metamorphosis in her business and personal life.

Following her profound revelation and subsequently scheduling a meeting that Delaye has defined as “fate”, she realized that it was time to take her founding business principles, customer-centric approach, and core culture to new heights.

Recognized for setting the new standard for full-service catering and events in the Central Pennsylvania region, it was no surprise to her team that Delaye would pursue her element and embrace change with the thought of something new.

Propelled by passion, tenacity, and tremendous courage— a new brand of hospitality services was born in 2012.

Métalaye Enterprises, Inc. (pronounced met-a-lay) derives from the word metamorphosis and CEO, Jennifer Delaye’s last name.
