Gary & Lynn
Silver Fox Catering and has been a longtime dream and passion of ours — We love cooking and entertaining. Over the years we have used our passion for cooking at family weddings, work events and private functions.
February 2, 2018 our passion became a reality and we launched Silver Fox Catering & Concession. With our friends and family’s support, we retired from the public sector and entered the Food Truck, Catering business.
Our slogan is inspired by our dreams and commitment to you “OUR PASSION TO YOUR PLATE.”
Both of us are long time Vancouver Island residents who enjoy giving back to our community. We spent many years volunteering with local organizations and are strong advocates of local farmers, merchants and the community.
We have strong family ties with 5 children and 8 grandchildren! Therefore, we strive to provide only the freshest, quality ingredients. We also understand the need for healthy food choices and for families to be assured any food related allergies will be considered.
Gary began his career as a cook obtaining his certificate from Camosun College in the early 1980’s. He began cooking on supply ships and eventually moved to into the corrections industry as a cook. Gary eventually moved into a correctional officer position and in 2012 he retired after 30 years of service. He quickly returned to his passion of cooking and started work in a resident care home. 2013 saw more changes as he followed his wife Lynn to Nunavut and obtained work as a Cook once again in the Corrections industry. Gary spent 5 more years in the Corrections field cooking — something he truly enjoyed. Gary recently retired and returned to Nanaimo to follow the dream of opening a Catering, Concession business.
Lynn began her career as a substance abuse counsellor in the mid 1980’s working in Vancouver. She moved to Nanaimo to raise her three daughters. Shortly after, she changed careers and became a Correctional officer. Lynn took on a new adventure in 2013 when she accepted a promotion to the Nunavut Justice department. Lynn spent the next five years assisting the territory in changing the department. Lynn recently retired and returned to Vancouver Island to join her husband Gary and pursue their dream of opening the business.
