ABOUT US

In 2004, Stephen Kerslake and Tran Dang Dan got together as business partners with a small dream to set up a sandwich company.
Today, they are running several companies with over 700 employees throughout Vietnam.
From a young age, Stephen had always wanted to have his own business but never did anything about it. At the age of 40
after working in the hotel industry for over 20 years, an idea one day to make pre-packed sandwiches gave him the enthusiasm and excitement to go out and make it happen. Stephen asked Dan, a work colleague if he would like to join him in a business venture.
With little money and no idea about setting up a business, the pair resigned from their comfortable jobs and set about
to conquer the Vietnamese market with their sandwiches.
From the Bite sandwich company, Stephen and Dan then created The Caterers, catering for events, and providing
meals for schools and industrial canteens.
Today, The Caterers now provide meals for over 32 international schools nationwide across Vietnam and
cater for over 650 events a year.
Stephen and Dan also acquired the following companies; School Food and
Quang Lap event equipment hire.
