    catered to the wealthy

    Hello everyone
    I'd like to ask about the phrase "catered to the wealthy" in the following sentence:

    He had come across an article in a small journal that catered to the wealthy.

    Does "catered to the wealthy" simply mean "for the wealthy" i.e. designed for the wealthy?

    Re: catered to the wealthy

    Yes, it fits the desires of the wealthy.

    As I read the sentence, I think it means that the journal was full of articles that the wealthy would find interesting.
