Welcome to the Family

Capitol Caterers has positioned itself as one of the leading commercial catering companies in South Africa by focusing on providing a quality, customisable and sustainable service. Working with food inspires our staff to work together to create something that serves a purpose for our clients, and leaves a taste that signifies passion.

A Refreshing Approach

We believe that passion delivers quality and by working closely with our clients we achieve excellent service in all aspects of our contracts, which has allowed us to sustain our reputation in the market. We currently operate over 100 contracts nationwide, primarily in the education and retirement village sectors, as well as healthcare and many commercially operated contracts.

With over 25 years experience in the industry, and with a retained B-BBEE 1 Status, we know that what sets us apart is our expertise, our sincerity and love for serving people, our professionalism, and the fact that we make integrity part of everything that we do.

Our business has expanded into site facilities management, and we provide the full spectrum of services from catering to cleaning and laundry. We also provide function catering to our existing clients, delivered with a uniquely personal touch.


As the leading catering company in the education sector we continuously strive to create a home away from home experience, by providing nutritious, balanced and tasty food. Our creative flair with functions allows our clients to create a comforting impression on parents that they have made the best choice in terms of educational institution for their child.

Health & Wellness

At Capitol we understand that nutrition is part of patient care. Patient satisfaction is imperative to us, and we achieve this by providing nutritionally balanced meals. We focus on therapeutic diets, infection control, and excellent customer service.


We provide cost effective solutions within the corporate and industrial sector, with the focus being on employee wellness and convenience by providing nutritionally balanced delicious meals.


Reaching the retirement phase of our lives there are 3 themes that come to mind: wellbeing, relaxation and enjoyment. Our residents look forward to the correct diets, fantastic functions and excellent service from compassionate staff, who literally become a part of the family.


The passion with which Capitol Caterers has pursued the empowerment of their staff and the previously disadvantaged in South Africa has seen us being rewarded with a LEVEL 1 B-BBEE status.

Level 1 Status

Black Ownership – 46.21%

Black Woman Ownership – 27.39%

B-BBEE Recognition – 135%

We believe that true empowerment means giving our employees a stake in the business, which we have achieved by creating the Capitol Workers’ Trust, which owns 49% of the company.

Part of our company philosophy is our commitment to the upliftment of previously disadvantaged individuals and we are proudly involved in various projects that assist SMMEs to establish businesses to supply contracts within our areas of operation. Joint ventures are also formed when tendering for new business in specific sectors and regions.

It is our aim to start initiatives to promote healthy, happy, motivated staff through staff development and empowerment.

This includes work-related training in areas such as food preparation, presentation, customer service, and personal and food hygiene.

In addition to skills development, we invest in training through external service providers in supervisory and management courses to ensure promotion from within, and the development of our people. We believe in equipping our people to build a career with us, while at the same time allowing us to achieve sustainable succession planning.

Other empowerment initiatives undertaken by Capitol Caterers include learnerships, bursaries and a hearing impaired intern programme.
