Introduction
As the name suggests, my focus is on the small bites concept. I do not typically offer full entrees, but since I customize menus often, I am able to sometimes accommodate my clients' requests. I also offer Pasta Bar and Taco Bar options, as well as salads and mini desserts. This enables me to keep my menus fresh, be very open and flexible to my clients' ideas and needs, and give personalized service. I am passionate about food and people. This business enables me to share my food with some wonderful clients, their families, and guests. Their feedback is always invaluable and I am always grateful for being welcomed into their homes and kitchens, and being a part of their special occasions.

Loretta was wonderful to work with when I recently hosted a housewarming party. The food selections were outstanding; hard to choose because everything sounded so good! Highly recommend the sliders, chicken tacos, muffaletta sandwiches... really, everything was delicious! Hire her for your next event.

Loretta was very nice to work with. I hired her service for my 40th birthday party and was thorough happy with the entire process. She’s very responsive to my questions. We worked together to determine the menu and how much food I need for my event. On the day of the event, she and her staff arrived on time, food was beautiful and delicious. I also used her wait staffs for an 8 hours event and they kept everything super organized and cleaned, foods were always full. I couldn’t be happier.

I had Loretta cater my 1st grandchild's baby shower. I was so nervous because I've always cooked myself and was worried there wouldn't be enough food. Well I was wrong. Loretta did a wonderful job not only in quality of food but her presentation. She is very easy to work with and very accommodating. I definitely will be using her again.

Loretta was amazing to work with. From the very beginning she was professional and helpful. We had a small backyard wedding with dinner and appetizers, and she heard what we wanted and made it happen. The food was absolutely delicious. It rained and everything had to be brought in for the dinner. Loretta was able to improvise and set up quickly and efficiently. Hiring Just a Bite really was the perfect decision for our wedding.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Since I work primarily with small bites/appetizers, pricing is per person depending upon your needs and budget. I have a sample menu of popular choices, but I am very flexible with ideas and suggestions.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been in the restaurant/hotel/hospitality industry for 30 years. In those years I worked both the front of the house and back of the house in all areas. I managed room service and a bar and grill in a hotel and managed several restaurants in those years. I was an owner/operator in a small catering company about 20 years ago and made the decision to strike out on my own again last year. I have worked with a few event planners/caterers in Chicago and suburbs and have catered events at Ignite, Prairie Productions, Loft on Lake, and Glessner House.
