The team at DJ's is here to serve your every catering need.
DOUG BIGGS | President and Chief Everything Officer
Doug first started in the food service industry at a small gourmet meat market while in high school where he learned a guiding principle that would shape his future success – never compromise quality or service for any reason, especially for quick financial gain.
After high school, Doug attended the University of California Santa Barbara where he graduated in 1990 with High Honors with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics. With the economy in a slump and a weak job market upon graduation, Doug decided to parlay his love and experience with cooking and his entrepreneurial spirit, into a challenging venture for the future.
From a humble start in a home kitchen in 1991, Doug, along with his high school sweetheart and future wife, Jennifer, built DJ’s California Catering into one of Ventura County’s largest and most successful catering companies. Today the company operates from a state of the art, 10,000 square foot facility in Ventura, California. After working hard to build the business in its formative years, Jennifer now provides advice and guidance while home full time with their two children.
ERIC BRYANT | Executive Chef
A native of France, Eric earned his stripes in some of his country’s most well respected restaurants. After coming to the United States, Eric entered the demanding field of catering for the film industry where he excelled. Eric joined the DJ’s Team in 1994 and has been Doug’s right hand man and a leader in the kitchen ever since. Eric’s attention to detail and pursuit of excellence in everything he does have resulted in DJ’s award winning reputation for serving exceptional cuisine.
