  2. #2 As You Wish Catering & Event Planning

    (12 reviews)

    Laurie M.

    I work for a small company with only 10 people in our Portland office and needed to cater a lunch celebrating an employee's 25 year work anniversary. With only 11 days to plan, I found Thumbtack and decided to give it a try. A few short hours later Hope reached out ready to start planning. Within the 10 employees we have one vegetarian, one gluten free and one grain free individual, and two lactose free individuals. She had no problem, and no worries, creating a menu that was suitable for all. She showed up on time and provided a delicious meal. As we sat around the room I heard only one complaint - "I'm going to overeat!" Everyone was thrilled with their meal and pleasantly full. I highly recommend Hope and the As You Wish Catering staff for your next event. We will definitely reach out to her in the future for our next catering need.

  3. #3 Crostinis Catering and Food Service

    Alyssa S.

    Bob was amazing to work with. I had questions and he immediately had answers. He thought of things and already had them taken care of before I even asked! He went above and beyond and took care of everything so I wasn't worried at all on the day of. He even made sure that the menu consisted of Gluten Free options for our guests and family members. He also made sure that there were vases for the bouquets for me and my bridesmaids at the head table! He provided all of the linens and napkins and the colors I wanted were spot on. He also provided a cash bar with all of the choices we wanted. I cannot say enough about how great it was to work with Bob. He always answered his phone or got right back to me. This really kept me relaxed and not worried about anything.

    Susan B.

    We hosted a club function for 80 people 11/1. Stacey was very accommodating in arraqnging delivery of rented items, set up, decoration then breaking it down very efficiently and taking back all the items we rented. Stacey cooked and served a sit down meal where people had three choices for their meals. Stacey and crew were very professional. Served the food quietly and efficiently. I would have liked a place to score her between Good and Outstanding because the hot food was not hot enough for me but my husband felt it was fine and many of the guests raved about the appetizers. The stuffed pepers were a big hit. Stacey was a very pleasant and confident person to work with. I certainly would recommend her to another if asked.

    Unfortunately, I was unable to use Jeanne in the end, but I can tell you that her communication and response time was the best out there. Also, I had her meatballs before and boy were they good! If you need a food truck, she is your gal!

Thumbtack Spotlight

Chefa's Inc.

(5 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I have always had a passion for cooking and feeding people. I get to meet a lot of people and have a lot of fun helping them plan the most special day in their lives.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

My grandmother is my inspiration. When I was younger, she used to let my sister and I choose recipes from her cookbook and we would make a grocery list, go get the items and come back and make the meal by following the recipes ourselves. She would tell us stories of how she used to cook for and feed all of the workers at my grandfather’s construction worksites from her camper to make money. That is a very special memory I have with her and I built the foundation for my love of cooking. Still today, I like to experiment with new recipes. When I was ready, I went to culinary school and opened my own catering company.

  1. #1 Texas Barbeque Company

    (10 reviews)

    Ben S.

    It can be scary to hire a caterer for a wedding on the east coast while living on the west coast. I had not met Mark in person until the day of our wedding. Yet, I had complete faith in him because all throughout the process he communicated very well and his references spoke well of his professionalism and quality. And on the big day, he came through and everything was fantastic. I'm very happy with the entire process! The cost was reasonable, the food was absolutely delicious, the quantity was spot on, he arrived on time and the setup looked great, he was very accommodating to special requests and vegetarians. I'm so pleased and highly recommend the Texas Barbeque Company!!!!
