Sivam Catering was founded in late 1980's by late Mr.Paramasivam s/o K.Ramaya in Penang, Malaysia. What started as an interest, turned into a well sustained and a reliable catering business. The business itself has grown from the days of cooking at home to a self-owned triple storey building from which we continue to provide all of our clients with excellent services. The humble beginnings of our company also includes Mr.Paramasivam, himself, cooking together with his family and friends to run the business. During the many expansions in the 90's and 20's, many professionals from local and foreign have been added to the crew to provide world class cuisines and services. Sivam Catering's legacy is continued by Mr.Premkumar s/o Paramasivam along with his siblings Mrs.Suba and Mr.Seevaratnam since 2015. He have overseen the largest expansion of Sivam Catering till date which is moving from a single floor catering to a triple storey building consisting of Sivam's kitchen, office and also an event hall.
