We are heading into our 40th anniversary season and have been featured by Business in Vancouver with a walk through our history in Vancouver and our unique approach to event planning and catering. Read some excerpts below and see the full article here.

Susan Mendelson started the Vancouver-based catering and event-planning company in 1979 with just one small shop – one of the first catering companies of its kind in the city. At the time, clients would bring in their own dishes and take food home. Even then, it was enterprising and sustainable.

“The idea was, the client was actually the ‘lazy gourmet,’” explained Kevin Mazzone, general manager of The Lazy Gourmet. That meant clients could take the food home in their own dish to pass it off as their own.

The business model caught fire and took off.

“It was at a time when people were not eating as well as they are now. This was a way to get really good, high-quality dishes for the family,” added Mazzone.
