“At Mossman’s Catering, we love to serve and we realize that our relationship with you is all about trust” -Rick Mossman

OVER

60 Years of Catering Excellence

Rick Mossman started in the restaurant and catering business the old-fashioned way — by washing dishes, even though the apron his grandfather gave him was taller than he was. Rick watched in amazement as his grandfather catered food for hundreds of people in the Civic Auditorium, now known as the Rabobank Theatre. He was even more stunned when he saw his dad cater food for 7,000 people in one day in a town over 100 miles from Bakersfield.

Needless to say, Rick grew up around good food and plenty of it. Mossman’s employs cooks with over 250 years of experience, meaning Mossman’s Catering can take care of your party from 1 guest to thousands of guests. Rick, Jerry, and Amanda not only want to meet your standards on your big day, but they also want to surpass your needs so that you have an unforgettable time. To do that for every customer, Rick established four unique guidelines.

01. We'll handle the details so you can have an amazing time.

At Mossman’s Catering, we understand that these special occasions are some of the most critical moments in your life, so we don’t want you to worry about anything on your big day. Rick and Amanda will set up a brainstorming Meeting with you first to learn all about your special day, and then, they’ll turn that information into a custom menu with a custom budget fit just for you. They focus on asking tons of questions like “How do you envision your party?” to anticipate all your needs before your event.

02. You can always change the number of guests you reserved.

We have fresh food available 7 days a week. Each week we feed over 3,000 people in our restaurants. So, if something unforeseen happens, and every once in a while it does, you can lower or raise the count of the number of people coming to your event Right up to 24hrs before your party begins.

03. We dont run out of food.

Rick and Jerry have a bunch of friends in the catering business who make fun of Rick for serving ‘too much food.’ It bothered him, but he couldn’t change that about his catering style. So, he brags about it instead. Because we always send more food than we need to, we guarantee that we will be able to serve 5% more guests than you guarantee. Please offer 72 hours to change your guest total.

What People Are Saying

“HOLY COW! The beautiful setup was expected after seeing so many great photos, BUT… I was unprepared for the genuine niceness and accommodating personality of this group! The chef came out, helped with the menu, and even came over to my event to ensure everything was set up perfectly. The food was so good that my guests couldn’t stop talking about it. The service, the setup, the professionalism, and the cost were not only acceptable but over the top. I can’t say enough times how pleased we were with all the little extras Mossman’s put into every aspect of our shower food and drinks. Thank you so much!” – D. M.
