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.

This is the second time we’ve used Loretta and she definitely didn’t disappoint. Her communication was prompt, she worked with us on the menu and pricing was fair and reasonable. The food….? Absolutely delicious. My guests raves about it and I’m thankful that we have leftovers. Lol. We will definitely use Loretta / Just a Bite the next time we have any catering needs. A+

Can’t say enough about Loretta and her team. Threw a 50th bday party for my sister and I’m out of state. Loretta took care of everything and I couldn’t have been more pleased. The Just a Bite concept was perfect. We chose 7 items for what turned out to be a little over 75 people. Since we wanted everyone outside, we were able to set up some stations in the yard and for the temperature sensitive bites, the serving staff Loretta provided handed out to the guests and walked around. We opted with a 2 ft charcuterie board and it looked like an art exhibit. She also provided a bartender and 2 additional servers, who would actively approach guests and ask to refill drinks or take people’s trash. Many of our guests asked who did the catering and I guarantee Loretta is going to get some calls

Wow. Just wow. This is the second time I have worked with Loretta and Just a Bite. Both were what I would consider non-standard catering gigs - outdoors, I didn't have them prepare everything (but most), used one of her serving staff for both. And I just couldn't ask for more. One was around 25 people - the other around 50. She was really helpful on menu suggestions, super responsive, the price was reasonable and the food was uniformly fresh, beautiful and most importantly DELICIOUS. And having a reasonably priced server was invaluable for helping with guest drinks, serving some of the food (some was inside, some were "bites") and keeping everything looking fresh and beautiful (picked-over buffet platters are never a good thing - no worries here!). I'm pretty picky and I can't think of one thing I could want them to do differently. And they were very thorough in closing up, cleaning up EVERYTHING (even those messes they didn't create). It allowed me to truly relax and enjoy our events. I would HIGHLY recommend. Thank you Loretta!

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.
