Chef Dane Catering began as My Personal Chef in 2000 after years of privately catering to the many requests of friends and family. Chef Dane worked with individual clients, providing meal services with in home preparation as the focus for many years. As time passed, the business focus shifted to social and corporate catering. To support this evolution, in 2016, Chef Dane Catering launched with the artisan built event concept and a new kitchen to meet the increased catering requests.
