Mark Lopez, President of Crave Catering and Founding Member of the Sustainable Catering Association, has been in the food business for most of his life. (In fact, he began planning and cooking meals when he was 8!) At 21, he worked for James Beard Award Recipient Mark Miller at the acclaimed Coyote Café.
His love for food and passion for the environment inspired him to move to Portland, Oregon in 1997 and open a restaurant, expanding it into a full-service catering business. He and his family live on a 2-acre farm where they produce organics for his catering business.
