When owner John Bagge started Twelve Baskets as a restaurant in 1976, eating and buying locally was simply his way of life after growing up on a 1000 acre grain farm in Minnesota. Bellevue professionals loved the local health food cafe and soon began asking for their food to be delivered to their places of business. And Twelve Baskets Catering was born a couple years later in 1978.
Once the local eating ethic became a selling point, the company didn’t need to reinvent itself – it has been offering local-food catering to Seattle and Bellevue for almost four decades now. Adding flavor to philosophy, the company’s team contributes decades of combined culinary expertise to Twelve Baskets Catering. Their commitment to delicious food is a significant addition to the company’s sustainability equation.
We have catered thousands of events over the years and have just as many happy customers with thank you cards, online reviews and repeat business to prove it. Whether you need an elegant dinner for 20 to 30, a beautifully and creatively presented hor d’oeuvres buffet wedding reception for 350, an outdoor company picnic with something for everyone, or a casual lunch for your corporate meeting, Twelve Baskets Catering is a great choice. Twelve Baskets’ team of professional caterers and event specialists is based out of Kirkland, Washington and travels around the Seattle-Tacoma area to help make your wedding or party a smashing success.
