Professional catering teams serving Los Angeles, Washington DC. and San Diego


When Executive Chef Nick Brune and his wife, Emily, started Eco Caters, they launched their organic-food catering company in Southern California – one of the most competitive markets in the U.S.

More than a decade later, Eco Caters is thriving on both the West and East Coasts. With established catering teams in Los Angeles and San Diego, as well as Washington DC, Eco Caters has earned a reputation for excellence in high-quality, sustainable catering.

Thoughtfully prepared food

Proving that there is an appetite for gourmet food elegantly prepared with fresh, organic and sustainable ingredients, the professionals at Eco Caters continue to explore new ways to delight their clients. Catering menus are based on the best of what’s available locally and in season. Most importantly, every menu is chef-driven and designed to the client’s taste and preferences.

Impeccable service and incredible-tasting food start with people who want to share the good – for their clients’ guests, their communities and the earth.

To help make every phase of your event come together beautifully, we offer recommendations to select vendors in the communities we serve.
