Valley Girls Catering is a full service catering company owned and operated by four amazing woman and it’s been their joy to serve thousands of customers over the last two decades. Beata Kowalski started Valley Girls Catering in 2002, when she began operating the food service at Deer Valley Golf Course. In 2005, she expanded the company to include a new venture – the Brickhouse Bistro located in Lumsden. Tania Fraser came on board as a partner in 2007, and Gerda Klyne joined the partnership in 2008. In 2009 the business again expanded, this time to the city and Fresh & Sweet was opened. The Valley Girls Catering team was completed when its fourth member, Allison Sweet, joined in early 2010.
Over the years their business has ebbed and flowed with a variety of business partnerships such as the food service at Regina’s Currie Field, home turf of the Red Sox ball team, the Tartan Curling Club, the Regina Beach Yacht Club, Sherwood Forest Golf & Country Club, and the Saskatchewan Roughriders beautiful home, Mosaic Stadium.
In December 2013 they sold the Brickhouse Bistro and in early 2014 they cut back the operations to truly focus on their baby….Fresh and Sweet. The focusing paid off. April 11th, 2014 was the airing of their episode of “You Gotta Eat Here” on the Food Network. Being chosen for the nationally broadcast television show was exciting for the girls!
They operated a hidden gem in the heart of downtown Regina for 7 years, Fresh on Hamilton, and then opened their passion project, Fresh Carnival in late 2018. It was through the exploration of all the different types of food services that Valley Girls truly found their niche with this fun and quirky restaurant.
The Valley Girls currently operate Fresh & Sweet, Fresh Carnival, Fresh Eats! at Sherwood Forest Golf Club and Deer Valley Golf Course, and multiple concessions at Mosaic Stadium.
The four women behind Valley Girls Catering have established a strong working relationship built on mutual trust and collaboration. This mutual cooperation has given the catering side of Valley Girls’ business a unique edge, enabling them to take on multiple functions on the same day. Whether supplying lunch for an office of six or feeding a wedding party of 300, Valley Girls is able to deliver on the dependable and professional reputation they have developed. Valley Girls Catering employs a large staff, many of which are long term employees able to fill numerous roles.
