Julie at Sunflower Catering did an excellent job. She was easy to work with, creative, and professional. She was reasonably priced and her food was delicious. All the guests at my daughter's baby shower were impressed and wanted Julie's business card. Julie paid attention to the smallest detail and even provided some extras to make the presentation beautiful. I would definitely use her services again and would recommend her to my friends!

Kris was easy to work with and very accommodating. She was on time and super helpful. I'm in South Carolina and was planning this event remotely. I felt comfortable with Kris and confident. I would definitely recommend Kris for any catering needs.

Local Yocals has easily become a family favorite. They are able to blend the perfect combination of incredibly fresh local flavors, and incredible chef talent. The menu as always has staples, but also has new flavors to try. If I have to choose a vendor at any event and Local Yocals is an option, we will choose them every single time. One thing I also appreciate is that they write where the food sources are from, it seems like everyone claims to be local, and this is the real deal. Well done.

Park Place Catering did an outstanding job at my son and daughter-in-law's wedding in September in Ames. The food was amazing and the service was also. Not only did they keep beverages containers filled at the front beverage table, which was not their responsibility, but they also cleaned up the whole kitchen spotless and even did all of our dishes when they were done. I was so impressed with Park Place Catering and recommend them to anyone. They take pride in their business.

Johnny gave detailed instruction and demonstrated all aspects of the cooking experience. He also provided information about food purchasing, storing and preserving, as well as tips for preventing cross-contamination. I will be scheduling additional classes. My experience was delightful.

I recently asked Carlos to cater an 80-person lunch event for a symposium my research group was hosting at Iowa State. Carlos did a fantastic job keeping in touch, letting us know his needs and exactly what he would be providing. His food is absolutely phenomenal! He made it fresh immediately beforehand and kept it well heated during the lunch. The buffet line moved quickly and everyone was very satisfied with the choices. Prices were extremely reasonable. All in all, I very highly recommend Carlos for any of your catering needs!
