Corporate Testimonials

There are simply not enough adjectives in the English language to tell you how GREAT our June 25th Company Picnic was.  Hands down, our best Company Picnic ever!
The weather was sunny; the accommodations were nicely kept; the food was plentiful and delicious; your people were super friendly and helpful; the kid’s carnival, moonwalk and Wet-N-Wild water games were fun and entertaining; but, the Company Olympics were beyond description- Hit –of-the Day!

It’s been weeks since the Arrow Christmas Party but I must tell you I am still receiving compliments about the evening, the exquisite food (both in quality, presentation and taste), the great hall, just compliments covering everything from the from the salad you created to the atmosphere warmed by your great lighting system in the room. I must say once again, thanks so very much for making Arrow’s party the gala event it was. You were instrumental in taking care of most of the planning, of which you did a wonderful job in every way.

I wanted to take a moment to tell you how pleased I was with the coordination and catering you provide for our Ontelaunee Ready Mix Open House.
The evening was flawless thanks to your efforts. Your attention to detail, your suggestions, and your communication from the early planning stages right through to the end of the evening were superb. Last minute changes were handled graciously and with ease. The food was wonderful. And, your staff was efficient and professional.
It is truly refreshing to work with a company that understands the true meaning of customer service.

Once again our company picnic was a success. This of course, is largely due to your staff serving quality food with exceptional service. Everyone raved over the food and had a ball with the activities. The best part about it is they all think I killed myself orchestrating this “Shindig”. Thanks to Lisa and the crew that was not the case. Looking forward to next year!

Our employees are still talking about the great time they had which is a testament to the wonderful job your staff has done.
The kids enjoyed the Arts, Crafts and Hayride, the retirees loved the bingo, and the rest of the group will never forget the wonderful time with the Picnic Olympics.

Thank you for doing such a lovely reception for Bishop Welsh and Dr. Westendorf last Sunday at Alvernia College. Both events were special because of the food, fine service and your cooperation on such a hectic time schedule. Thanks for making my job a “piece of cake”!

Thank you for helping to make the Reading Capital for a Day event a success. The Community leaders Luncheon was the highlight of the event. The lunch was positively delicious and enjoyed by everyone in attendance. The ballroom looked very nice and was the perfect setting for the program for 350 local leaders and members of the Casey Administration.

Just a brief note to say thanks so much for the absolutely splendid way that you handled everything for the Museum Gala! The food was superb, the menu choice outstanding, and the service and all the extras very special. I must say that there were many wonderful comments from those who attended. It is quite a treat when people rave about the food at a fund-raiser. We’ve all been to so many that one simply tolerates what is put in front of them that it really is super to know that wasn’t the case. Many thanks to you and your staff, it truly was wonderful.

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to offer my heart-felt thanks on all the personal attention and concern that you gave to me and my family to make my father’s 90th Birthday Celebration even more special than it was. From the very beginning, you gave that extra time and effort to make sure that every detail was going to be attended to. You really kicked it up a notch in every way. I never remember having an event where so many people commented on how outstanding they felt the food was from the beginning to the end and how the presentation was of the best they had ever seen

Thank you so much for making our wedding reception absolutely wonderful. The food was so good I actually ate my entire plate full! The tables, candles, appetizers, cake, and desserts – everything was wonderful. I can’t say enough about it.
Our wedding day was perfect because of you.


Tara and Keith Lawlor
I cannot thank you enough for everything you did for our daughter’s wedding. We had many, many compliments form our guests about how very good the food was.
The service was impressive to say the least. Your staff was very professional and efficient. I marveled at how they went around and bussed the tables and you didn’t even know they were there. They were so quiet and you didn’t hear the usual banging of dishes and clattering of silverware. They were also very courteous to our guests.
We could not have asked for more. A standing ovation to you and your staff.


Carol and Joe Voletto
The catering you provided at our Mardi Gras Potentate’s Ball was excellent. The Gumbo soup was just right-not too spicy, but not too bland – and the shrimp and crab table was outstanding and enjoyed by all the seafood lovers.
We were extremely pleased with the dinner. Every course was delicious and plentiful and served very attractively. Many gusts have commented that it was the best meal they have had at the Rajah Temple.
Thank you for your part in making our Mardi Gras theme a fantastic success

Thank you dearly for the part you took in making Katrina and Brant’s Engagement Party “elegant” , “the highlight of the season”, “a Martha Stewart event”, and on and on. It couldn’t have been more perfect. Everyone mingled and wore smiles from ear-to ear.
The guests raved about the food’s taste and presentation and also complimented the unbelievably nice servers. You were my #1 choice as caters. You delivered to my highest standards, and were so easy to work with. You never added stress and always imported trust.


Thank you dearly,
Maureen Szish (Mother of the Bride)
