Our Amazing Staff
Who is Gayle.....
Born and raised in the Tacoma-Gig Harbor area, Gayle Orth has always had an intense interest in beautiful and delicious food. Self taught, Gayle’s experience in the field of the culinary arts has created a solid reputation of excellence. She began her catering career with a vision and untiring determination. With a fierce passion for quality and an uncompromising view of customer service, Gayle has built her business into one she is extremely proud of. Gayle and David, married for more than forty years, are the parents of two grown daughters and doting grandparents to three beautiful granddaughters, a great grandson and soon to be second great grandson!
Who is David....
David Orth? Where would Gayle Orth Catering be without him? A commercial real estate broker for more than twenty years, David was always the support behind the scenes for Gayle. Several years ago, David, after much deliberation, decided that he would join the catering company full time and retire his broker’s license. His financial background and business experience have been invaluable to the success of Gayle Orth Catering. David and Gayle very much enjoy working together as a team, not only professionally, but personally as well. They love nothing more than to end their hectic days, at home in the kitchen, preparing a meal and relaxing.
Gary Harris, came to us from Florida 4 years ago and is our one-man wonder! When he’s not chopping, peeling, slicing or sautéing, he keeps the Gayle Orth Catering kitchen spotless. Gary is a great off-site server, a work horse on packing in and setting up events and his eternally sunny demeanor and can-do attitude are much appreciated. Respectful, generous and possessing a great sense of humor, Gary is a very important and valued member of our team.
