How We Started
— Name, Title
Hirotako Catering was created in 2015 out of a passion for amazing food and service. The then two-man operation saw rapid growth after booking its very first event—catering for an Anime Convention in Los Altos Hills, CA and its 200 guests. Through word of mouth, a lot of hard work, and a commitment to producing winning partnerships (we tailor our menu each time to suit the theme of each convention uniquely), Hirotako has become one of the most beloved convention catering companies in the San Francisco, Bay Area uniquely tailored to service pop-culture conventions.
Our founder/executive chef started as a merchandise vendor 11 years ago in 2005 selling handmade specialty toys and plushies at anime conventions throughout CA. He eventually graduated and pursued his passion for the culinary arts; however, he never forgot his love for the fandom world so in 2015, Hirotako was born. He realized that there was a massive gap in the quality of food available at these conventions and being such a big foodie, he dedicated himself to closing that gap by providing specialty menus specifically tailored to fans using the unique themes of each convention. It was an instant hit, and Hirotako has been non-stop ever since.
