  • Linda

    Everyone had a great time and loved the food. We continue to be asked who provide the food, so hopefully you will receive referrals. The CAKE was the most memorable - the chocolate cake was so moist and delicious. Guests thought it was clever to serve fruit on each plate along with their choice of white or chocolate! And the punch recipe turned out fabulous too - thank you!

And the two servers were terrific! The relief I felt after talking with you only 3 days before the event was enormous!! Also, your generosity is something we will never forget!! Thank You a million!!!
  • Becky Sandring - "The Food Mom"

    The meal you provided for the Blue Springs South High School Jaguar Pride Marching Band in St. Charles served us well.  EVERYTHING DISAPPEARED like magic as the kids went down the food line and filled their plates.  We had the right amount of food.  Those who wanted seconds were able to do so, yet we did not have any leftovers! Thank you for great food, prompt delivery and the perfect amount of food.  We appreciate your work to deliver a hot meal to the Blue Springs South High School marching band.
