Our Story

Sandy Murphy founded critics Choice Caterers in1987. Having been a passionate contributor to "The World of Food" since her childhood she sought to challenge convention and provide a feast for all of the senses, creating a special sense of satisfaction in the dining experience. Critics Choice Caterers excelled in Private and Corporate Catering as well as the busy Motion Picture and Production industry Catering.

In 2012, Sandy Murphy was looking to retire but would not let her years of work and passion go to just anybody. Sandy was intrigued by one individual that had been repeatedly in the local media for constantly winning awards and racking up major accomplishments – Justin Kyllo of Smoke and Bones BBQ. Justin had been winning awards all over Canada and the United States for a few years with his take on Southern cooking and had established Smoke and Bones as the biggest and best BBQ Caterer in the Lower Mainland.

In November 2012 Justin took over the Critics Choice menu and facility. Working with Sandy and adding some new culinary talent to the current team they have refined Critics Choice Caterers with an updated modern menu. With the ability to combine menu items from two different styles of cuisine Critics Choice Caterers and Smoke and Bones BBQ have the ability to create special fusion menus like no other company can: all served with professionalism, style and flare.
