Back-of-House Catering

Event food service requires focus, energy, and a spectrum of food options to please everyone from high-profile artists to the staff executing your awesome event. We put the same passion and quality into the food and beverage experience for your back-of-house, as we do for your event guests.

We know that guests are selective about their drinks, and so are we. We’ll ensure that every beverage option fits the demographics of your event and your guests.

Our strategies include:

  • Collaboration with distributors to offer the most appropriate menu, whether it’s high volume beer sales or curated cocktails.
  • Certified servers to ensure speedy and safe service to your guests.

Over the years, we’ve also gained extensive experience advising on liquor licenses throughout the country, and we’ll be glad to help you navigate that complex topic.
