Thumbtack Spotlight

Applause Catering Inc.

(1 review)

What do you love about your job?

Our concept is simple. We provide outstanding services, gorgeous presentations and delicious food. We help our clients put together beautiful events. We alleviate the stress out of planning the event. The decisions are the clients’, yet we offer suggestions and opportunities to make their events unique without breaking the bank. We love what we do, and we have a glowing track record.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

We have always worked with food. We had a restaurant in Downtown Columbia called the Frog and Braseire, and I managed a fine dining restaurant owned by a European restaurateur, Franz Meier, called Columbias. European table service is an art and a skill, not just a part-time job. Franz insisted that service is always the best and to never take shortcuts. There are many shortcuts in catering. but they do not always turn out the best food. There are simple things that make a difference, such as hand cutting cheese and making chicken salad from fresh chicken instead of cooked frozen chicken. Our business is better than most because we take the time to do the special things, and we do not take shortcuts. We do the extras, such as labeling our food items and bringing in decors to accent the tables. We offer food and service that is over and beyond our competition. At the end of an event, I can rest knowing that we provided the best food and service possible. The event was gorgeous. The food was delicious, and we made the families very happy. Most importantly, the bride and groom had a wonderful time and did not worry about any of the food and beverage details. It’s a good, happy thing!

    Table is Spread Catering 'With The Tailored Flavor'

    (15 reviews)

    Denise catered a romantic anniversary dinner for two in Columbia, SC at my apartment. We spoke several times before the event and met two weeks prior to work out the details. She was professional, prepared, kind and just wonderful to work with. She was on time and she provided beautiful china, candles and linen which brought elegance to my small apartment. She cooked the most delectable sea bass dinner (with asparagus and wild rice) and her dinner service was impeccable. It was a pleasure to be her client and when I am in Columbia I will definitely use her services again. She is first rate. There is nothing she could have done better. You will not be disappointed with The Table is Spread Catering!

    Loosh Culinaire Fine Catering

    (3 reviews)

    I have known of Crawford Presley and his fine catering business Loosh Culinaire for years. I have been a guest at numerous weddings and other functions that he has catered. I am confident in saying that not only is his food of the highest quality, but the presentation of his wonderful offerings is top notch. Beyond the obvious excellence of his cooking, Crawford also exhibits the professionalism one would expect when hiring a gourmet caterer. If you are in the market for the services of a fine caterer, trust me when I say that you would do yourself and your guests a disservice if you were to chooses anyone other than Crawford Pressley and Loosh Culinaire.

    Being from Europe and great fans of the Italian food culture, we wanted to have a real Italian dinner for my birthday party. Chef Keith understood at once what we wanted and provided us with the exact experience that we wanted to share with our friends. Everybody was raving about the food and I am pretty sure that we will meet him at a future party of one of our friends. He did not only provide us with excellent food, but also with great presentation and service. Thank you for making our party a succes!
