The Story of Outpost Catering


The Outpost Catering is an award winning catering company that began in the early 2000’s. It all started when Doug Cooper established Sgt. Preston’s Catering after the success of Sgt. Preston’s of the North. Doug saw a demand for catering services and began providing catering out of their downtown location. The demand for catering and business took off and they quickly outgrew their space. In April 2001, an opportunity arose to purchase the current Banquet Facility and they were able to provide a full kitchen and catering facility to meet their growing demand.

Delicious Food

Our event was a true success. Everyone always looks forward to the cookouts from The Outpost. I overheard some of the staff members raving about the food. I also enjoy working with the staff. They are always friendly, respectful, ready to assist and helpful. I can always count on them serving the guests as needed without hesitation. Of course as a facility manager, I am thrilled when they leave the kitchen clean and organized. Thank you for always doing a great job at Dauch.
