“I spoke with Angela – the host – from Saturday’s event. I don’t know if I can adequately state how impressed she was with your service. She was VERY impressed and thinks you will be catering some of her future parties.”

“Thanks once again for the great job you and your crew did. Much appreciated. Everyone was talking about the great job you did, and Bruce and Allan, who had sweat dripping down their faces, they were hot but did a great job.

If I ever have the opportunity to recommend caterer to someone looking, I will certainly recommend you.”
