Business Overview

Our Story

Left Coast Catering believes that “sustainable” is not just a catchword but also a way of doing business – sustainability in everything we do, from our buying practices to our employees and long-term relationships with our valued clients. We strive to source ingredients locally, paying close attention to what we buy, from whom we buy, and the distance products have travelled. It is this same ethic that explains why many members of the Left Coast Team have been with the company for over a decade, and we guarantee that our commitment to quality and consistency is something that you will not only taste in our dishes, but also see in every detail of your event, party, or luncheon. Most importantly, our pervasive attitude that “this is fun” allows the Left Coast Family to throw you the kind of party that you’ll remember year after year.
