Our Story

Groovin’ Gourmets is a full-service caterer based in Richmond, Virginia. We are dedicated to providing memorable and delicious cuisine, impeccable service, and professional styling for everything from today’s corporate lunch delivery to tomorrow’s seated dinner reception.

Since Groovin’ Gourmets founder Brandon Bruce first started catering boxed lunches out of his home kitchen back in 1999, our goal has been to exceed client expectations. Today, we’ve grown into a full-time catering business with two new managing partners—Michael Calkins and Scott Halloran–a full-time staff of 30+, and a commercial catering kitchen. We’re still exceeding our clients’ expectations, and we’re more committed than ever to wowing you and your guests with our unwavering dedication to food, service, and style.
