Catering/Chefs/Craft Services [MOVIES]

When going to the movies, I feel I own that movie till the last credit rolls. Im that guy every usher hates because I dont move till its completely over. Trust me, I know Im an asshole. Now what I've been doing is looking to see who does the catering or cooking on each movie I see. The one I thought that had the best name was StarGrazing Inc. They did the new "IT" and "Poltergeist" from what I remember (both terrible remakes). I did a little research and found other companies online that did catering for movie productions.

Cinema Catering
Cinema Catering
Riding In Cars With Boys 2001
Divine Secrets Of The Ya-Ya Sisterhood 2002
Radio 2003
Jersey Girl 2004

I mean really shit movies to be honest with you. Dont get me wrong if I had a company that did anything associated with a production I would brag pretty hard.


I also went back to check some old movies, to see the names of the chefs/catering companies.

Gala Catering [Found From T2 Credits]
Gala Catering

Robocop 1987
Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade 1989
Terminator 2 1991
Heat 1995

Also this company does almost every Adam Sandler movie, seriously. They did Funny People, Grown Ups, Dont Mess With The Zohan, Click, 50 First Dates, Longest Yard, Mr. Deeds, Little Nicky and so on and so on.


TomKats Catering [Found from Gummo credits]

City Slickers 1991
What About Bob 1991
My Cousin Vinny 1992
A League Of Their Own 1992
Mrs. Doubtfire 1993
The Green Mile 1999

Personally I think this company has done the best blockbuster movies. Not only that, they documented their time on the sets. Thats the coolest thing in my opinion, seeing the behind the scenes on the set cooking food.

I really enjoy this kinda thing, so I will continue to sit through the entire credits to see who catered/cooked for the cast and crew on the movies. While doing this long ass post I found a Documentary about a Croatian chef who started a location catering company. Really enjoyed watching it. Give it a chance.
