Fresh, Local Flavor
What sets us apart from other caterers?
Plenty, but here's a good place to start. We purchase goods from local farmers and suppliers whenever possible. This is a core practice that has been at the center of our culinary and business philosophies throughout our careers.
We do this for several reasons:
- Our guests experience the freshest ingredients possible.
- The relationships we build with other local businesses help strengthen our community.
- We want to help protect our environment. Buying locally means that goods have less distance to travel, cutting back on greenhouse gas emissions and reducing the volume of packing material needed.
We fulfill this mission while at the same time keeping our prices as low as possible. When you choose to work with Glass House Catering, you're sure to be pleased with every element of your catered affair. Our experience and care give you peace of mind knowing your event is in the best possible hands.

"I want to express my particular delight at the work the Glass House did for our three-day program. Not only was the food exceptionally good, but the staff members were remarkable-discreet, attentive and competent without ever calling attention to themselves. They, and the excellent food, added to the three days in a way that is unusual. I'm very grateful that we had the opportunity to work with them."
~Abby Stewart, ADVANCE Program Director
