One cold “Rain City” day in Seattle, 14 year-old Kenneth Rogers and 10 year-old Jeremy Bryant (childhood friends since 1974), carefully followed the recipe for banana bread on the back of a Bisquick box, and proudly served it to their families. That milestone marked the beginning of many childhood discussions of future goals and dreams to one day own and operate a successful catering company in the Pacific Northwest.
In 1999, Jeremy and Kenneth achieved their lifetime goal and opened New Century Catering. In addition to operating their world-class catering company, Kenneth and Jeremy briefly ventured into the restaurant industry and owned and operated 43rd Street Café,
before ultimately deciding to focus 100% of their time and energy on catering.
Being proud Seattle natives, Jeremy and Kenneth subsequently decided to change the company name in 2010,
in honor of their birth city – famous for its rain; hence, Rain City Catering was born!
