Full Service vs Delivery Catering Infographic

And now we’ll take a more in-depth look at each…

Full Service

Are you looking for a catering partner who can manage the entire experience at your special event? Whether it’s a wedding, bar/bat mitzvah, milestone birthday party/anniversary, company picnic or holiday party, choosing full service means that you can fully hand your event over to our team. We’ll take care of everything so you don’t have to worry about a thing!

Here are some of the reasons why you may prefer full service to delivery:

Chef-prepared fresh on-site


With full service, we bring the kitchen to you. All dishes are fully prepared and cooked on-site using only the freshest, high-quality ingredients. This flexibility in preparation also allows us to customize dishes for any picky eaters or any guests with food allergies.

Fully customized menus

We believe that every event should be unique! That’s why we offer personalized menus that are custom designed to complement the unique style or theme of the event. 

Professional and helpful staff 

Our friendly staff is available throughout the duration of the event to provide the finest service and personal attention. From food preparation and serving to the ever so dreaded cleanup, you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that all aspects of the event are handled with precision and care.

Full cleanup service

We understand that nobody wants to clean up after hosting an event. With full service, we will take care of everything, so you can spend time catching up with friends and family, or dancing the night away.


Delivery catering
