We execute flawless, memorable events by combining exquisite food with the highest level of customer service. We have been a premier caterer since 1986.

Established in 1986, in Old Town Gaithersburg, The Prime Choice began as a family owned butcher shop. After a taste of success the three Shepard brothers David, Douglas and Richard boldly branched out when they purchased the shabby but chic old restaurant next door. Clients enjoyed the freshly prepared menu and personalized service and David Shepard especially enjoyed the interaction with his clients. David, the adventurer took the family business one step further and began The Prime Choice Caterers. The new catering company’s first client was IBM.

Continuing the legend and success of the family business, in 2003 Brian Shepard joined in the excitement as Catering Director. For decades David Shepard, Executive Chef, and his professional staff have been providing Montgomery County and Metro DC with cuisine abounding with flavor and flawless service.

Corporate clients engage our services, from the early morning go getters, to the late night oil burners. We prepare sumptuous breakfast buffets, lunches and dinners for training seminars, board meetings, corporate picnics, and holiday celebrations.

Social clients find us fabulous for their wedding receptions, bridal/baby showers, bar mitzvahs/bat mitzvahs, anniversaries and other special celebrations Whether you crave a fine, formal meal or a light bite, The Prime Choice menu’s showcase everything from succulent Pork Loins to tender Sea Bass. And if it takes more than one trip to satisfy your guests, we are happy to see them return to the various creative cuisine stations.

The Prime Choice is committed to planning and executing flawless, memorable events by combining exquisite food with the highest level of customer service. We have been a premier caterer since 1986. Our professional and creative staff will take your ideas and create a successful spectacular night.

    Couldn't be happier

    The Prime Choice (TPC) was by far the best option and value we could have asked for. While I personally missed the majority of the appetizers on the day of the wedding, we had asked them to box some up for us to enjoy the next day- and let me say, the feast was real. There was not a bite of food I did not enjoy.
    When choosing TPC as our caterer the deciding factor for us was the proteins. They were by far the best seasoned, the best cooked, and the best dressed. TPC worked with us to get the menu exactly how we wanted it, catering our side dishes and salads to be exactly how we liked them to be. They were affordable, flexible, and by far the easiest to work with.

    We couldn't be happier with our experience using Prime Choice Catering! Not only was Melissa warm and wonderful and professional, she was our saving grace! She worked with us tirelessly to give us exactly what we wanted. Her background as a wedding planner was such a bonus for us! The food was delicious, and the service exceptional! The bartender (Justin) was great and fun, and the servers were attentive. The best part was when they joined the guests on the dance floor (after being asked by my hubby - he saw them dancing behind the tent :) ). I couldn't recommend them more! We will definitely use this company again for any of our party needs!

    If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Prime Choice catering was a hit at my wedding and a special appreciation to Melissa Bonds! Everyone loved the food, Melissa was always VERY responsive to emails, texts and phone calls. They came early and really went above and beyond! The food value was the bet we could find in the area and I would recommend them to anyone that asked. Thank you so much for being so flexible too....because it looked like it would rain off and on all day and they came with multiple plans to help the day go as smooth as possible! I had very little anxiety because I trusted them so much! I wish I had photos to attach but I wanted to write this before we have our wedding photos back! HIGHLY RECOMMEND
