Catering to Your Chosen Venue or Location!
Because each event is as unique as the person envisioning it, our job is to ask specific questions, to listen and learn about our clients’ ideas, likes, dislikes and budgetary parameters. Only after this process is complete, do we begin to implement the details, design the menu, visualize the décor, and finally bring the concept into a realty.
Using our creativity, culinary expertise, exceptional planning skills and years of experience, Traditions Catering & Events works together with our clients to conceive events that best fit their individual visions and needs. Our goal as caterers is not to sell a client an event we’ve already done, but to design one that reflects their individuality.
Traditions caters to many local area venues who do not offer in house catering, and we can help to provide catering to locations off the beaten path as well, so whether your event is in a field, at your office, or in your own home, Traditions can help!
