I hired In-Joy to cater a birthday party. From the initial consultation to the day of the event, the customer service provided was outstanding. They were flexible with timing. The food was absolutely delicious. The green beans were above expectations!!! I would attach photos but the guests devoured it before I had the opportunity. Don’t skip the opportunity to In-Joy a delicious meal with superb customer service!!!

Chef Dena is an amazing human being. Very kind, professional, patient and understanding.

Chef Dena’s food was absolutely delicious!!! My family enjoyed every last bite for my moms 50th surprise party. I even had to give others at the party Chef Dena’s business information because they want to look into attaining her services in the near future as well! I would 110% recommend Chef Dena’s catering services and I look forward to working with her again. Thanks soooo much!!

We really enjoyed working with Dena with InJoy Catering from the tasting to the big day. Dena was very professional and worked hard to get our menu and final quote and contract right in preparation for our wedding weekend, where her team covered our rehearsal dinner, day of breakfast and lunch for bridal party and vendors, and day after breakfast with family. When we finally made it to do a tasting with Dena, half the time after that we were doing wedding planning and the other half just anticipating her cooking again LOL For our rehearsal dinner, Dena and Patience made a taco bar dinner that we absolutely loved and made our 25+ guests very happy. For breakfast on the day of, one of our guests mistakenly told the catering team the wrong location, but never fear! Dena whipped everything back into the van and had it all set up by the time the bride and groom arrived, like there was no hiccup! ;) Breakfast was just what this hungry bride needed before setting off for the big day. For lunch, all of the bridal party and early vendors could hardly stand waiting to eat the fresh paninis and salad. It was all so good and healthy - perfect for our nervous tummies! Having those smells really made it feel more like the family vibe that we wanted for the weekend and everyone raved about it. The day after breakfast was so amazing. We were all so tired from the night before, and it was so nice to wake up and have such a nice spread of warm items, fruits, and juices just like the day before. Everyone was so thankful and it just really helped us start the day right. We were extremely pleased with InJoy Catering and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer. We really felt that Dena and her team added a level of affordable extravagance and comfort to our event, and our guests absolutely loved it. Stop searching...this is your caterer!!
