Rocky Top Catering, formerly Rocky Top Hospitality, has been devoted to hospitality in the Triangle since 1998 when Owner Dean Ogan opened his flagship restaurant in Raleigh, NC. Since that time, Dean has developed nine successful restaurant concepts from Raleigh to Fayetteville, developed special event venues 1705 East and Cross+Main, attained two exclusive catering arrangements at the Blue Zone at Kenan Stadium and the NC Museum of Natural Sciences, and grown Rocky Top Catering into one of the largest catering companies in the Triangle area. We have achieved great success in these ventures due to our commitment to local leadership, focusing on food and service trends, and listening to customer/client needs.
In 2018, we purchased and upfitted a 17,000 square foot warehouse and kitchen space in North Raleigh, which now houses our state-of-the-art catering kitchen, tasting rooms and corporate offices. This expansion allows us to provide even more catering options, such as on-site team building events, chef experiences and private client tastings.
Our Rocky Top Catering team takes a tailored approach to each and every client we serve. Our professional and friendly staff make your event unforgettable – from planning to execution and every step in between. We work seamlessly with vendor partners to ensure that your event is everything you want it to be and more. To best serve our clients, our team members specialize in certain areas – corporate, weddings, social events, venue management and so forth – to ensure you get the expert attention you deserve.
Philanthropy is at the core of Rocky Top Catering’s corporate values. As a locally owned and operated company, we believe strongly in giving back to the local community that supports the company and its employees. This commitment to giving back is instilled throughout the company, from the corporate office staff, to the management team, all the way to its frontline employees. The company continues to find new and creative ways to give back, from volunteering and serving food at local meal centers for the underserved and homeless, to packing and distributing personal care bags for the homeless. Our success is due to the support of our local community, which has embraced our love for “all things local” and our passion for providing quality food and exceptional guest experiences. Our desire is to give back to the local community that has supported us for the past 20 years. And besides that, it’s just the right thing to do. Plain and simple.
