How we got started

Founders Dennis McGinley and Jim Gass confessed to having been exhausted by the daily pressures of trying to run large restaurants and catering facilities. So, in 1997, they launched a new concept that they had been developing for some time. Corporate Caterers was born.

They established simple, straightforward house rules for Corporate Caterers: 

  • breakfast and lunch catering, five days a week with no weekend commitment
  • a corporate clientele only, no private parties or evening engagements
  • a closely-knit, well-trained staff to assist with every order

And the business began to grow and grow.

In 2007 the company launched locations in Florida and Georgia. Very soon, we sold franchises in Texas and Ohio. Expansion continued for the next 10 years.

In 2017, we brought Greg Halton on board to assume the role of CEO. His mandate was to take the company from its grass roots level to a national franchise leader. Larry Powell, one of the first franchisees in the system, agreed to join Greg’s team as VP of Franchise Sales and Development, and together, Greg and Larry launched their growth strategy.

Today we’re the leader in our industry. And we’ve expanded our operations to over 15 states with many more on the horizon.
