Parker Grant

About Us

Parker Grant is a catering, consulting, and events company. We specialize in project-based consulting, event management, and experiential design. Our projects range from restaurant development and stadium concessions to corporate gatherings and curated event design. We approach every project strategically, from an exclusive evening in our Social Space to a 500-seat black tie fundraiser.

Due to this Covid-19 event, we've put our heads together to put forward an idea centered around no contact prepared meal delivery.

Introducing PARKER GRANT Signature Prepared Meals.

With a national network of event planners, design savants, executive chefs, and industry veterans, we'll make your vision come to life.

David Parker and Grant Kosch founded Parker Grant in 2019.
