About Us

Established in 1986, in Old Town Gaithersburg, The Prime Choice began as a family owned butcher shop. After a taste of success the three Shepard brothers David, Douglas and Richard boldly branched out when they purchased the shabby but chic old restaurant next door. Clients enjoyed the freshly prepared menu and personalized service and David Shepard especially enjoyed the interaction with his clients. David, the adventurer took the family business one step further and began The Prime Choice Caterers. The new catering company’s first client was IBM.

Continuing the legend and success of the family business, in 2003 Brian Shepard joined in the excitement as Catering Director. For decades David Shepard, Executive Chef, and his professional staff have been providing Montgomery County and Metro DC with cuisine abounding with flavor and flawless service.

Corporate clients engage our services, from the early morning go getters, to the late night oil burners. We prepare sumptuous breakfast buffets, lunches and dinners for training seminars, board meetings, corporate picnics, and holiday celebrations.

Social clients find us fabulous for their wedding receptions, bridal/baby showers, bar mitzvahs/bat mitzvahs, anniversaries and other special celebrations

Whether you crave a fine, formal meal or a light bite, The Prime Choice menu’s showcase everything from succulent Pork Loins to tender Sea Bass. And if it takes more than one trip to satisfy your guests, we are happy to see them return to the various creative cuisine stations.

The Prime Choice is committed to planning and executing flawless, memorable events by combining exquisite food with the highest level of customer service. We have been a premier caterer since 1986. Our professional and creative staff will take your ideas and create a successful spectacular night.
