heycater! was founded in autumn 2015 with the mission of revolutionising the B2B catering market. The idea was born when our co-founder Therese Köhler wanted to organise catering for a photo shoot - which turned out to be extremely difficult. It had to be easier to order high-quality catering according to your own wishes.
Today, over 2,500 active business customers and 500 catering partners work with heycater! in the largest cities in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. We have made it our mission to make business catering easy, fast and absolutely uncomplicated.
We give companies easy and flexible access to great catering while removing the complexity for first-class catering providers. For our caterers, we are the „digital back office“ that facilitates the planning and handling of catering and enables additional sales.
