Our team recently hired Gennie Bee Catering for a corporate retreat. The owner, Denise was professional and responsive. I had a lot of questions about the meal planning and she was always available to respond. We hired Gennie Bee Catering to prepare a breakfast and lunch. Our team members relished both meals and our host was impressed as well. I definitely recommend Gennie Bee Catering for the quality of the food, great service and tremendous value. This company has a long future in the catering business and I am glad that we will be part of it.

I had the pleasure of working with Chef Denise, and I must say she went above and beyond my expectations. She was accommodating, flexible, and professional throughout the entire process. The food she provided was enjoyed by all members of the Board, and the service was exceptional. Communication was clear and timely, making it easy to plan and coordinate. She made me look good in front of my team. I am grateful for her help and would not hesitate to use her services again in the future.
