Our Story


The founders of The LunchMaster, Ted & Marie Giouzelis have had the entrepreneurial spirit from an early age. As newlyweds in their 20s, they owned a successful produce market in San Francisco and the popular Nob Hill Chicken & Ribs in the heart of Union Square. Deciding to raise their family on the Peninsula, they moved to Belmont and opened a new restaurant Mr. Hofbrau. Almost immediately, they began receiving requests from schools to prepare meals for their students.

After several years of operating Mr. Hofbrau, and with the demand for school lunches and private catering steadily increasing, Ted and Marie created Nob Hill Catering, Inc. They have owned Nob Hill Catering, Inc. for over 30 years and integrated to the group The LunchMaster in 1994.

The LunchMaster is successful because of our 20+ years’ experience and tireless dedication to the well-being of children and our continued commitment to excellence.

The owners, Ted & Marie Giouzelis, who share 35 years of passion for high quality home cooking and catering, are both still fully involved in the production of the food and ensuring a high level of customer satisfaction. Their main focus continues to be the quality and integrity of the food produced in their kitchens.
