Susan Gage began her catering career creating parties for friends from her home in suburban Washington. A self-taught chef, Susan initially catered with several friends in her local community, using her home kitchen as a base. She started her own company in 1986. Today, with no advertising other than the reports of many satisfied clients, Susan Gage Caterers is a seven-day-a-week enterprise with more than 2000 parties yearly and $12 million in annual sales.
The company, located in Oxon Hill, MD, now operates out of a 20,000 square foot facility which includes a full commercial kitchen, sales offices, warehouse, a fleet of vehicles and more than 90 full-time employees. Susan Gage continues to rely on those qualities that made her business successful from its start in 1986 – extraordinary food, meticulous planning, and thoughtful, professional service.
The company’s slow and careful growth over the years has allowed it to give the same attention to detail to parties for more than one thousand people that it gives to intimate dinner parties. Susan Gage Caterers works with the best florists, musicians, tent companies and party planners to assure that all facets of your event will be well-served. Our team of professionals is dedicated to providing a level of quality that is unmatched in the Washington, DC area.
