Dear Valued Customers:

The health and well-being of our customers, team and community is our highest priority. We continue to monitor the current global situation we continue to monitor COVID-19 updates and pro-actively update our policies in order to best protect our team and those around us. Here are some of the steps that we are taking to promote health & safety.

To Support our Customers:

Pacific Coast Catering offers our delicious meals in lunchboxes or lunch bags, to help our clients looking to reduce employee contact. We would be happy to work with you to provide menus based on individually wrapped lunches if this is something you or your company is looking for. Please call or email to find out the great ways we can help during this time.

To Support our Community:

Pacific Coast Catering is dedicated to following all of the prevention measures recommended by our local and provincial health authorities. Some of the steps that we are taking include ensuring that all areas of our workspace are rigorously cleansed, proper hand washing hygiene is carried out, and contact between staff members is limited. We have a COVID-19 response team that is working around the clock to make sure that all surfaces are sanitized multiply times each day, and we have restructured our spaces to ensure that staff members are practicing physical distancing at work. All our team have up-to-date information on how to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and we perform health checks with all employees and visitors before entering our facilities.


Our facility is closed to the public and all visitors are signed in, monitored and ask to follow our strict hygiene policies including using sanitizer upon entry.

We are dedicated to ensuring that our drivers follow these strict guidelines outside of our facility as well, and must sanitize all vehicles multiple times per day, in order to care for the health and safety of everyone that we are in contact with.

As a small business, we are dedicated to continuing to provide you with excellent service through these difficult times, and we appreciate your continued support.

All the best,

The Pacific Coast Catering Team.

ABOUT US


Listening, talking and making crazy good food since 2006.

We began in 2006 as a corporate catering company. Over the years, we got to know our customers,

we listened and talked to them, and they started to invite us to cater their weddings, galas, cocktail parties as well as boardroom lunches.

This is how our business grew.

We are committed to creating menus that are globally inspired, locally sourced and crazy good.

The truth is we love what we do—be it building an event from scratch, basking in the Pacific Coast sunshine flipping burgers,

or getting the whole team involved in serving a group of a thousand people or more.

The leadership team—Ron, Breck, Paul, Mel, and Russell—is excited about the future and committed to continuing to serve you.

Our business is run family style. Like family, we stick around, we know each other, and we know (get to know) our customers.

Together, our leadership team has 60 years of continuous service, and we look forward to doubling that number in the years ahead.

We are grateful for the remarkable support we have received from our amazing customers, who we have served, over the years.

While we leverage technology to offer conveniences like online ordering, we still believe in the value of answering the telephone.

Come to think of it, listening and talking to our customers is what got us invited to cater your weddings, galas, cocktail parties and boardroom events.

That, and our crazy good food! Let’s keep talking and eating.

Sustainability


At Pacific Coast Catering we pride ourselves on doing our part when it comes to sustainability practices.

New clients often ask us what we do with the leftovers and other

waste that inevitably accumulate at the end of any event and in our

production kitchen. It can be summed up in just three words: recycle,

re-use, compost.

Less than five percent of our waste becomes garbage. Any leftover

food that is still safe to eat, according to FOODSAFE guidelines, is

distributed to a food mission in the Downtown Eastside. Or, if it is

still packaged, to a food redistribution centre.

All paper, glass, metal and plastic waste is collected for recycling,

while refundable pop and juice containers are held for collection by

charitable groups.

Anything that may be safely cleaned – such as plates, other tableware and metal flatware – is thoroughly cleaned and re-used.

We also plan all events carefully to minimize waste and make sure all

fruit and vegetable waste from events and from our kitchens ends up as

compost.

For our corporate drop-off services, 90% of the containers we deliver are compostable, while the remaining 10% are recyclable.

And, we support BC’s food producers by sourcing our fresh ingredients locally, whenever possible.


Community


While our support for local communities includes sustainable

practices, and local food sourcing, it does not end there. We support a

number of local charities, both through cash donations and contributions of food items.

We also believe it is important to reach out to the world. So, for

several years, we have been sponsoring underprivileged children in other countries, helping them to obtain healthy food, safe drinking water and educations to provide for their futures.

  • Dalit Freedom Network
  • BC Farmers' Markets
  • International Caterers Association
  • Quest Outreach
  • Union Gospel Mission
  • United Way
  • Vancouver Executive Club
  • Wish Drop-in Center Society
