The Executive Chef


Chef Houston Loper's love of food spawned from him growing up in a family with women who loved to cook and who also happened to be very good cooks.  Houston cultivated his cooking experience working under Chef Kevin Rathbun and Chef Buddy Holly at the famous Atlanta Fish Market.  He then attended culinary school at the Art Institute of Atlanta.

Following graduation in 2003, Chef Houston opened several restaurants and began catering services in Macon, Georgia.  In order to challenge his culinary abilities, Chef Houston decided to focus only on HL Catering as he enjoyed making each of his clients' events memorable and one of a kind.


Chef Houston and his wife, Katie, moved the catering business to Raleigh as Katie convinced him that the business potential in the Triangle is growing exponentially, as well as Katie happens to be a Tar Heel born and bred.


Chef Houston is excited to work with you on planning the perfect menu for your next event, whether you are hosting a corporate breakfast or lunch, wedding, rehearsal dinner, shower or a dinner party for friends.
