About Elvebredden Catering

The word Elvebredden translated to english means literally Riverside. When the company was founded in 2003, our kitchen and preparation facilities were located on the bank of the river Akerselven, and for this reason the first company vehicle was in fact a small boat for making deliveries to islands, other boats and locations along the Oslo harbor.

Today, over 15 years later, Elvebredden Catering is one of Oslo´s largest catering suppliers and employs between 50-90 people, depending on the season. Since the very beginning our team of drivers, cooks, servers, and office workes have been an international group of people from just about every corner of the world. English is spoken and understood by nearly everyone here, so we are more than happy to take your call or email in english.

The menu includes Norwegian party-food staples, but we are best known for tapas and a contemporary continental selection of dishes for fine dining and informal events.

Elvebredden is also running the venue Kanonhallen in Oslo, which has capacity for over 700 guests. Kanonhallen is a unique, flexible and popular venue for everything from company parties to television recordings.

In 2017 we had a total turnover of approx. 53 million NOK.


Who do we serve

Our primary area of business is the city of Oslo and surrounding areas. This accounts for the vast majority of our deliveries. However, on occasion we venture out to events all over the world. We have travelled with film and TV crews on location on such productions as 71 Grader Nord, and countless other filming locations. In addition, we have served traditional Norwegian food at locations such as the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Havana Cuba. Our client base is approx 40% private customers, 30 % communal and state, and the remaining 30 % private sector business.

The founder

Elvebredden Catering was founded in 2003 by Espen Mikal Gryt. Espen is from the northern village of Skjerstad, just outside Bodø. Espen was an apprentice at the Grand Hotel in Oslo under head chef Wolfgan Tôpfer, and he graduated as a chef in 1997. As a graduate cook, Espen traveled to Togo on the West African coast and worked at the French gourmet restaurant Le Malesen. When Espen came home, he was offered to take a position as head chef at Rica Nordkapp and was Rica's youngest head chef. In the years that followed, Espen worked at various restaurants and catering companies in the capital until he established Elvebredden Catering in 2003. Espen is today chairman and sole proprietor of the company and of the group Culinary Holding.
