Family Owned

Since 1984

ACT 3 consists of a professional team of positive and hardworking individuals. We work together to create and deliver a memorable experience of quality food with top-notch service. Our "family" includes highly skilled and innovative chefs, professional and knowledgeable coordinators, proficient delivery drivers, and experienced service staff.

Terri Doremus, along with her husband Chuck, started Terri D's Catering in 1984 using a commercial kitchen that was in her Buckley, WA home. The company was conceived "to put smiles on the faces of friends", who were hosting parties and wanted Terri's irresistible homemade food. Word spread from one friend to the next about how good the food was and, before long... Terri D's became a full-fledged catering business.

The Doremus family worked alongside Atwood Catering in Kirkland and California Catering in Renton during the late 1990's, before Terri D's purchased both in the year 2000. In 2002, Terri and Chuck changed the business name to "ACT 3 Catering", representing all three companies working together as one. In 2007, the Doremus' consolidated all operations into the present headquarters, 16,000 sq ft building in Tukwila. The building boasts ACT 3's state-of-the-art commercial kitchen, business offices, extensive warehouse spaces, and loading dock for the delivery fleet.

It is with Terri and Chuck's legacy that we continue to provide high quality food and exceptional customer service.
