Testimonies

** We were referred by the hotel our firm had selected for a long and upcoming trial in Memphis with a team of 30 people.  We stopped shopping for daily catering after speaking with Allison and Laura Lee.  Heck, the kosher meal didn't make them bat an eye as our time fell over a holiday.  The food was fresh and on time everyday, set up and kosher meal delivered properly.  We do have business in Memphis from time to time, will be calling again and appreciate the bbq for the trip home.  Thomas M. 11/2021

** My first fundraiser for my 5013C and you were highly recommended by several peers.  We had an amazing evening.  The only time it was quiet was while people were eating, we always took that as a compliment.  Your staff was just the best and we can't thank you all enough.  Gina C.  10/2021

**We needed lunch every day, Monday through Friday for 25 people for six weeks.  Kept running into brick walls trying to figure out how to make it work.  One phone call and Laura Lee set it up, complete with meal rotation and disposable.  Food was great and one time EVERY DAY! Thank you for service.  Rod H.  9/2021**

I don't get to say this very often because of my position, but I wanted to send a note of gratitude in working with you and your staff this past weekend.  The food was hot and on time for every meal.  The last day the meeting room had not been turned from the event the night before, one of the staff started assisting with stacking chairs, rolling tables, putting on table cloths while the chef and another member got the breakfast buffet ready.  As I took a deep breath when the room was ready on time for the client (now never knowing it wasn't done) did it come to my attention that is was the owner helping us.  Your time in the industry definitely showed today and you will be my first recommendation to our sales team.  11/17 D.Smith National Civil Rights Museum

Planning this training from New York made me a bit nervous and you were referred to us.  One call to Laura Lee and I knew I had nothing to worry about  for our meals.  Our vegetarians (20 in our group) were blown away for the first time I can ever remember.  Coordinating the travel, transportation and activities during our visit to Memphis was much easier .  We have several groups coming through during the MLK50 year celebration and the meeting facilities at the museum were perfect.  We will call you first! 11/17  T. Jackson International Coalition of Sites of Conscience

Your slogan says it...we were nervous.  Thank you for all you guidance, planning and taking the worry out of our bridal shower. I know our family was bigger than      most as the bride is marrying out of town and this was our chance to spend time with local family and friends.  We loved the venue (pinot's pallette) and the food and server were both amazing.  Wish her reception was here...but grateful for  your guidance working with wedding professionals out of town is nerve racking!  Donna G.   4/16
