What is Gilmore Catering?
The Gilmore Collection Catering Department has built a reputation as West Michigan's preferred and most trusted caterer by employing over a decade of experience. We employ only most creative, knowledgeable, and courteous event coordinators, culinary staff and servers. There is no event too large, too intimate or too specialized for our talented team to handle. We have options for all budgets and have received critical acclaim. However, we do not rest on our laurels. Better service, the most creative approaches to design and offering our guests the most dynamic menus are our goals on a daily basis. We invite you to use our experience and dedication to make your event memorable for years to come.

The B.O.B. (an acronym for Big Old Building) is located in downtown Grand Rapids. The 70,000-square-foot, four- story, red brick building was constructed in 1903 as Judson's grocery warehouse. It stood vacant for decades before The Gilmore Collection began its transformation, saving it from demolition.
