The details can make all the difference! Whether you are planning a lunch meeting, a pharmaceutical presentation for a large firm, a holiday party or an employee appreciation celebration for your entire staff, you can bet we will put our hearts and souls into making sure you make a lasting impression.

We understand corporate clients need versatile options when entertaining.  Our Luncheon Menu includes a beautifully garnished chilled or hot entrée served “family style.”  The Gourmet to Go menu gives you the option to customize your menu ~ each selection serves twenty guests and can be customized to your needs. The platters are artistically composed and can be picked up or delivered. Simply Gourmet also offers Bar Service including professionally trained bartenders and multiple bar options to suit your company’s needs.

From open houses and company picnics to large formal galas ~ our Full Service Menus and Barbecue Packages give you the ultimate choice. Our event coordinators will help you every step of the way (Venue and Vendor Recommendations, customizing menu, on-site event planning).  With Simply Gourmet the options are endless. Contact us!
