Our Story

King Cole Catering was started by Vernon Cole in 1996 and continues to operate with the same family values in mind today.

After 20 years of success serving the community with delicious, homecooked food at a fair price, Vernon proudly passed the business reins to his daughter Taylor in 2016. Together, father and daughter have grown King Cole Catering into a multi-faceted company, with a core business of providing full-service wedding, corporate, private event and takeout catering to customers throughout southern Manitoba. As a top caterer in the province, Taylor has evolved the business even further to accommodate events of any size, hiring additional staff and recruiting even more family members to be a part of the King Cole Catering team.

“Our business has grown and evolved over the last 25 years,  but our commitment to our customers has never changed.  We will always deliver simple, fresh and consistent catering, at a fair price.”
– Taylor Cole, Owner

Our Promise

At King Cole Catering, we want you to love our food as much as we love creating it. We believe that a meal is much more than a few items on a plate – it’s an experience for your guests, an opportunity for meaningful conversation with family and friends, and a special moment to be savoured and enjoyed. 

We know that when you hire us to cater your event, you’re trusting us to make it special. Our promise to you is simple: you will get our best, every time. That means quality food within a budget you can afford, great service from staff who are passionate about their work, and the personal touch of a family business that cares about you and our local community.

Fresh Ingredients

Simple and delicious, we select only the highest-quality fresh ingredients. Our handcrafted meals are made-to-order and delivered hot and ready to eat.  

Family Values

We cook for you the same way we do for our own family. Our crowd-pleasing recipes are curated from traditional family favourites, and are all made with love.

Friendly Service

Our team members love what they do, and it shows! Don’t be surprised when we go out of our way to make you and your guests feel special.

Our Team

Taylor Cole

Owner

Taylor may have taken over the family business in 2016, but she’s been working for King Cole Catering ever since she was 13-years-old. With a background in hospitality and marketing, a degree in Communications and a diploma in Public Relations, Taylor is most passionate about enhancing the customer experience and taking the family business to new heights. Under Taylor’s leadership, King Cole Catering has introduced new lines of business, expanded to offer more menu options and services to clients, and has continued its legacy as one of Manitoba’s top choice wedding and event caterers.

Geoff Kitt

Head Chef

Geoff has worked in the food and beverage industry most of his life. He attended George Brown College in the Hospitality and Culinary Arts program and went on to work in some of Canada’s best restaurants, including Mercer Street Grill in Toronto, Bishop’s in Vancouver, and Sooke Harbour House near Victoria. He moved back to Winnipeg to open Fusion Grill as the Owner and Head Chef, providing guests with a unique casual fine dining experience. Geoff brings his culinary expertise, passion for great food and love of cooking to every dish he creates at King Cole Catering.

Aidan Cole

Sous Chef

Aidan grew up in the family business just like Taylor, helping to cater events from a young age. Aidan has a degree in history and has worked as a cook at the University of Manitoba and Gusto North, while also helping Taylor run the family business. Creating the barbeque side of King Cole Catering (King Cole BBQ) was Aidan’s brilliant idea, and he takes great pride in smoking meat, testing new recipes and preparing food for clients.
