About Us


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,Barbecue, 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.
