Thank you Tammy!! We had a great time at your wedding! Chef Kelly
Everyone was amazed at how lovely everything looked. She had the table arranged with different heights, it was stunning. Then the food, it was fabulous. One friend had to leave early and when she got home she called and booked Yummy for an upcoming event. The bar tender was very good. He had the bar set up so to make drinks very quickly. Wish my husband could make a chocolate martini like the ones served at the party!!! We will diffintely use Yummy again!! And recommend them to our friends.Mar 7, 2017VerifiedKelly M.'s reply

Yummy Goodness provided food and service for my March 11th wedding. Our wedding was held at a luxury home in Sandbridge. The food was displayed beautifully! Little signs told everyone what the food was and setup was gorgeous. Guests raved about the food and said it was the best wedding food ever! From the brisket to the mac n cheese / mashed potato bar to the shrimp and grits .. the food was outstanding! Lori and her team were perfection at its best. We would recommend them highly!Mar 16, 2017VerifiedKelly M.'s reply
Thank you Karen! -Chef Kelly
I contacted yummy goodness about the possibility of catering my wedding. I received an email with a couple of dates to set up an appointment. I selected a date but was then told it was not available after all and then I never heard from them again.Mar 9, 2017VerifiedKelly M.'s reply
I am so sorry! This is unlike us in every way. We just found your email, with your response in the junk folder. Sometimes this happens. We actually thought you might have just found another caterer. If this is not the case, and you would like so speak with me, My name is Kelly, and I am the owner. Please take down your review. This is not how we do business. We aim to satisfy everyone, if they use us or not. I can also extend some discounts to you if you had not found anyone yet.
Yummy Goodness was excellent!!! The food was delicious, the staff was friendly, on time and we plan to use them over and over again!! We loved everything about them and are spreading the word!Jan 24, 2017VerifiedKelly M.'s reply
Thank you so much for your kind words! This is exactly why we like owning our own business! Chef Kelly Type your response to this review.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?*Tips for Pricing- Many people ask why we don't have pricing on our website. Everyone has different needs and tastes. We custom build each menu and event. We ask our clients to imagine entertaining their guests at a local restaurant, and how much it would be per person, then add drinks, dessert, and service (onsite, offsite or delivered). Our prices are competitive and reasonable for the highest quality of food and service you will receive.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Its always best to personally talk to them about their tastes and needs, then determine what the best menu and service is for the budget they have.
