Our Background…


City Core Catering started in 2001 as a small cafeteria-service business based around delicious home-cooked food.

Over the years it has evolved through the efforts of a great team and fantastic chefs into a company that provides groups big and small with delicious, freshly made staple foods for any occasion.

Specializing in Corporate, BBQ, and Wedding catering, City Core strives to provide familiar favorites with a flair in service and presentation which stems from the dedication and pride of our team.

Gary Hovey is a Red Seal chef, starting young in his field and beginning with apprenticeships under some of the finest local European chefs.

Gary worked as a Sous Chef, University Instructor, and Head Chef before deciding to begin his own catering company.

From the beginning Gary has focused on his philosophy of ‘doing things right’; no short cuts, making food with high quality ingredients, and offering foods that people already love without any ‘fancy surprises’.

Katie Hovey, Gary’s daughter, joined City Core over a decade ago, taking the service and presentation to the next level. Katie is dedicated to making every event special, and exactly what the client envisions.
