Fresh. Local. Homemade.
Every day is a new day at By Jen and Jan. All of our meals are prepared from scratch using only the freshest, highest quality ingredients. We’re proud to use Ontario farmed meats and local produce as often as possible.
We truly have a passion for food. Where it comes from and how it’s prepared are key ingredients in our recipes. We value simplicity, honesty and wholesomeness, and rely on these principles to bring you inspired dishes from all over the world.
Who We Are
By Jen and Jan started as a dream by two friends who met in the Culinary Arts program at George Brown College. After working in a variety of kitchens across the GTA, the dream became a reality and we opened our first location in Vaughan in 2008. As the years went by and our client list grew, we were able to build our own state of the art, high capacity kitchen in the North York Area.
We have been in business for over 10 years and in that time we’ve catered a wide range of events. Our food has been enjoyed in boardrooms, on film and television sets, at cocktail parties, weddings, bridal showers, baby showers and dinner parties. From 20 people to 2000 people, we have catered them all!
With our dedicated team of experienced catering professionals, By Jen and Jan offers a personalized experience for both full-service and drop-off catering to corporate and individual clients in the GTA and surrounding area.
We create inspired food that is totally catered to your event. We are happy to work with you to plan a menu that is creative, versatile, and above all, adaptable to your needs.
By Jen and Jan’s core values of honesty, integrity and loyalty form the framework of our success. Our service philosophy is about supporting our customers and community through donations and event sponsorships. We believe in giving back to the communities that have embraced us.
