As ypu like it catering was given a task for a special fundraiser for us. They made some desserts from a special recipe just for us. It was attention to details. Their staff os professional & so nice to woek with. They are awesome.Nov 3, 2015
This is an experienced caterer, with a veteran staff of servers who work extremely well together and a slew of outstanding chef(s) that understand that a meal's bottom line is "did it taste good?" And by golly, they can put together a feast that all of top chefs on the Food Channel would drool over. I've been to about a half dozen events catered by them and when I see their name, I know I'm in for a great time and culinary delight. If you have an event coming up, call them and then at least as to the food part of your event, you know everything is going to be handled. Rachel or Phyllis are organized, helpful and very accommodating.Nov 3, 2015

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Catering is the heart of our business, so our pricing is based on the cost of food service that is needed. Our menus are priced per person, with the exception of our "Gourmet a la Carte" menu, which is priced per quantity. From here, we add whatever is needed to provide an accurate estimate of catering costs for a particular event.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Once we receive an inquiry, we try to provide whatever specific information is requested. Usually an event has so many variables that it is most helpful if we can talk with our customer for 20 - 30 minutes. We like to get a good understanding of what is needed, as every event is different. We like to know first what type of event is planned, and then get more event details (number of guests, style of service, theme or decor, other event services that are needed, type of food, budget, beverage or bar service, staffing details etc.).
- How did you get started doing this type of work?As You Like It Catering & Events was started in 1996, when the owners took over a small cafe in Corona. Pretty quickly, it became clear that catering was the way to go, and the dining room was changed over to office space, and the kitchen was revamped to handle larger catering orders.
