About Us

Welcome to Simply Foods

Our Story

Hi! We are owners Katie, Jason, Ryan, and Josh. Thanks for checking out Simply Foods!

Simply Foods is a full production food service company with roots from a family business, primarily focusing on catering, meal prep and delivery, and providing school lunches. We met at our kitchen at YVR Prep and found that we all had uniquely complementary backgrounds and skills as young entrepreneurs and parents – coming together to form this team has been an incredible experience.

Each of us has school-aged children. When we create and serve our food, we also think of how we would want to feed our own families. Now that we’ve established this new partnership, we have been able to expand our reach and grow our operations. Making and sharing food that we love means everything to us, which is why accessibility is our mission and reason to be.

In a short amount of time we have grown to become a family of 15. Meet the lovely people behind our computer screens, phone lines, kitchen counters, and steering wheels.

Our Roots

Our kitchen and office spaces are located in Burnaby. We prep, cook, and pack next to 60+ other locally-owned food companies at our commissary kitchen at YVR Prep. Working alongside these businesses provide us with an endless bound of inspiration; a wonderful daily reminder of the importance of community.

Our Timeline

We were humbled to be named one of Vancouver’s top catering companies after 25 years of prioritizing flavour, quality, health, and excellent service. We as entrepreneurs, event planners, logistics professionals, business developers, and chefs thank you for choosing us as your preferred caterer.

Flavourful, Vibrant Ingredients

Simply meals are made with fresh ingredients blended in tender meats, earthy vegetables and legumes, topped with various herbs, spices, and seasonings. Our food is free of preservatives and artificial flavours with no MSG. You’ll recognize everything that is in our food.

Service with Integrity

We as food service providers take our responsibilities seriously and recognize the importance of your trust when we feed your families every day. You can trust in our quality, processes, and passion for food when we make your order.

COVID-19 Adjustments to Events Services and Precautions

We have taken the necessary precautions as per local government recommendations and have worked directly with Fraser Health to establish safe food preparation and transportation procedures.

To ensure the safety of everyone involved, we are currently not offering serving or equipment rentals nor on-site in-person cooking for events. As a temporary measure, we are offering a special menu with pre-cooked hot meals in large catering warming trays and take out boxes. Meal delivery and pick up will be contactless.

Please email us for further details or visit our page here for our COVID-19 Safety Plan.
