The earliest account of a major services being catered in the United States is a 1778 ball in Philadelphia catered by Caesar Cranshell to celebrate the departure of British General William Howe.[1] Catering business began to form around 1820, centering in Philadelphia.[1][2] Catering being a respectable and profitable business, the early catering industry was disproportionately founded by African-Americans.[1][2][3]

The industry began to professionalize under the reigns of Robert Bogle who is recognized as “the originator of catering.”[2] By 1840, a second generation of Philadelphia black caterers formed, who began to combine their catering businesses with restaurants they owned.[2] Common usage of the word “caterer” came about in the 1880s at which point local directories began listing numerous caterers.[1] White businessmen eventually moved into the industry and by the 1930s, the black businesses had virtually disappeared.[1]

In the 1930s, the Soviet Union, creating more simple menus, began developing state public-catering establishments as part of its collectivation policies.[4] A rationing system was implemented during World War II, and people became used to public catering. By the 1960s, home-made food was overtaken by eating in public-catering establishments.[4]
