In the enchanting year of 2012, an extraordinary adventure began that would change the world of caterers forever. Marten Sytema, a driven and innovative mind from The Hague, Netherlands, was fascinated by the idea of developing catering software. At the time, the concept of software for caterers was relatively unknown and unexplored. But Marten saw a glittering opportunity to transform the catering world and simplify their processes, and he couldn’t get the idea out of his mind.
Meanwhile in picturesque Kasterlee, Belgium, Maty Van Geirt was full of passion and creativity. He owned the famous sandwich store “Broodjes & Co” and was working on an ambitious concept called “Hapjes & Co.” His dream was to spoil all of Flanders with the most delectable bites and culinary delights. Maty had already talked to countless people about his idea, but he still lacked the right tools to bring his vision to life.
However, fate had other plans, and one happy day the following year, Marten and Maty’s paths crossed unexpectedly. A spark of inspiration and enthusiasm engulfed them when they discovered their shared passion for the catering business. Marten, who was already busy building his catering software, saw in Maty’s concept a wonderful opportunity to realize his ideas.
Full of dedication, Marten began developing the catering software, while Maty worked with full energy to perfect his catering business “Hapjes & Co.” For six years, Maty used Marten’s software, fulfilling his dream of a thriving catering business. The two visionaries grew not only as business partners, but also as friends.
Finally, they decided it was time to join forces and use their combined expertise to conquer the world with their joint creation: Catermonkey. It was a leap of faith, but they knew that with their shared passion, perseverance and complementary skills, they could write a success story.
Now, four years later, Catermonkey shines like a shining star in the sky of the catering industry.

The perfect combination of Dutch wisdom and Belgian practical experience has made Catermonkey an unparalleled all-in-one app for party professionals. Their story is an example of how passion, cooperation and perseverance can lead to great success.
If they continue to build on their vision and strive for perfection, Catermonkey will undoubtedly have a lasting impact on the catering world and continue to shine as a beacon of light for festive occasions around the world for many years to come.
