Sandy Cooper


Sandy Cooper is one of the single most hardworking and passionate people at Canyon. Her career started twenty years ago in sales, where she would meet (Compete against) her future husband Steve Cooper. Together, they opened a few restaurants in Orange County, and today own one of the busiest and most successful independent restaurants in OC. When the opportunity arose, Sandy jumped on creating Canyon Catering. Eight Years later, Canyon is now a brand recognized by the community.

Sandy was instrumental in finding Canyon’s new headquarters, a 15,000 square foot building, which will give Canyon the ability to buy the best products and create incredible events for our customers. When asked about the key to Canyon’s success, Sandy states it has to do with the unique and talented team of individuals who are empowered to do what they do best.

Steve Cooper


Over the past twenty years, Steve Cooper has owned and operated several successful restaurants around Southern California. Steve has been influential in creating the Canyon Catering environment. Steve’s motto for success is simple: treat his employees like family and instill in them the ability to create and believe in themselves. Steve is well liked, respected and has created an environment that allows his employees to feel empowered and to be a part of something. It’s no wonder there’s a line out the door of people wanting to join Canyon.

Christina Cooper

Director of Marketing

Christina literally grew up in the industry. She started working in her dad’s restaurant when she was just twelve (she’s only been fired once) and has been a part of Canyon Catering since it started. After getting a degree in Business and Government from University of Redlands, she joined the Canyon team full time. When she’s not planning parties, or updating our website, she’s probably planning her honeymoon at Comic Con or arguing the validity of Marvel vs DC Comics.
