Partners David Ashley and Laura Lyons started the company in 1999 with a mission to bring restaurant caliber cuisine and service to a catering industry accustomed to hotel banquet standards. Their restaurant ownership and management backgrounds enabled them to think outside of the "catering box," leading to the development of such catering firsts as large-scale multi-ethnic stations menus.

Global Gourmet has emerged as the San Francisco Bay Area's leading full-service catering company on the strength of our commitment to deliver restaurant-caliber food, impeccable service, trend-setting design and attention to detail while meeting your budgetary requirements. We have served the creative needs of corporate clients such as Google, Apple, Facebook and Cisco Systems, organizations including Bridge School, Earth Justice and the Stanford Alumni Association, and have partnered with premier event planning organizations to ensure the highest quality food and beverage catering service programs possible.
