Chef Dave’s Catering is now JSL Catering. This follows the exit of chef David Frank in April 2019.

David Frank’s brother and president of JSL Catering, Larry Frank, announced the rebrand in an email Aug. 15. The name is derived from the initials of Larry Frank’s children, Joey, Sam and Louis, as well as standing for “Just Say L’Chaim.”

“They say change is good,” and in our case, also very exciting,” Larry Frank said in the email. “We hope to say ‘L’Chaim’ with you many times over the coming years.”

Adding Los Angeles chef Haim Leibowitz to the team, JSL Catering will be able to do small dinners to banquets serving more than 500 people.

JSL Catering will cater a deluxe kiddush Aug. 31 at Green Road Synagogue in Beachwood. On Sept. 15, the company will also cater a buffet dinner at Young Israel of Greater Cleveland in Beachwood. Reservations will be accepted at The catering company’s menu will also be posted and updated on its website.

“We appreciate everyone’s patience during our transition and look forward to seeing you soon,” Frank said.
