About this pro

How does your business stand out?

It's my creation....I have built the plane as I was flying it in order to figure out exactly what customers need. I listen, I don't over sell, I pay close attention to the nature of each event and take my business very personally.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

This is an easy question. We never, ever do the same thing twice! Every day, every client, every event is a brand new chance to make someone happy and satisfy their need for affordable, beautifully presented food, delivered on time. It is constantly changing and we are very flexible, so, for us, it adds to the fun! :)

    A Great Catering Service for all your Needs
    It was so easy to plan our event with Connie. She sent a sample menu, I made a few changes after looking at all the items on her catering website, the price was right and we were all set. Connie, Nina and Sandy arrived in plenty of time to set up- they were incredibly efficient. Our guests really loved the food and enjoyed Connie, Nina and Sandy as well. We can't recommend Pickles Catering enough.

    Pickles catering has some of the most professional and caring people. They are very well organized and really care about your event. They do more than just cook and serve excellent food, they also give you tips on how to promote your event or even in the planning. Thank you Connie!!

    Connie from Pickles Custom Catering is a very personable caterer. She is always on time and the food is always fresh and delicious. If I should contact her for a last minute luncheon she is always willing to accomodate. I've only used her for company luncheons, but if she does all her functions the same way, I would highly recommend her.

    Great catering company. The food was great and well worth the price. Staff was cordial and on time. Will definitely use again. They even threw an extra treat! Thank you Connie for a great job. My guests were quite complimentary of your edibles.

    Pickles Custom Catering did a great job catering WordCamp Providence 2014. Connie was very responsive and a pleasure to work with. If you like working with people who are on time, are kind-hearted and put special touches on all they do, then hire Pickles to cater your next event.

    Pickle's Catering went above and beyond the call of duty! In the midst of a snow storm, Connie delivered our food on time for the office Christmas party. She did not disappoint, either with the delicious food she prepared especially for us! I would not hesitate to recommend Pickle's Catering to anyone needing a great catering service!

    Simply put, I love Pickles! The quality of the food and service is consistently outstanding. I have used them on numerous occasions...birthday parties, cocktail party with close friends, memorial services, and just because I didn't want to do it myself.
  • Nina D. Feb 28, 2013
    Pickles catered my bridal shower last year. Connie and her staff are the consumate professionals. Once I met with Connie to choose my menu for the day, I didn't have to worry about anything else. She made sure every last detail was attended to, and made my day PERFECT!

    Nina, what a beautiful setting you provided for your special day! It was our pleasure! Congratulations and best wishes in your first year together! Peace, Connie

    I can always count on Connie to come through for me. With a minimum of direction, she always comes up with the perfect menu, always on time, and is a joy to work with.
  • James M. Nov 13, 2012
    I recently attended an event catered by Pickles. It was the utmost in style & professionalism, along with an excellent balance of flavor and service. The Hors d'oeuvres possessed originality where I jumped for seconds, and the entrées were hot and flavorsome. Highly recommended for any event.
  • Pam V. Nov 12, 2012
    I have used Connie and her crew on many different occasions - small birthday party, large Christmas party, business luncheons, etc. Her food and service are always top notch and thoroughly professional. I would highly recommend Pickles Catering!!
