    Yummy Food & Friendly Service

    I decided to go with Carefree Catering based on their reviews and the ease of their menu selections and prices. I didn't feel confused when making my decisions on prices and meal options unlike other catering companies. I corresponded with them by phone and email. The other reason I decided to go with them is because they provide tablecloths, napkins, glassware, and silverware. I was happy I didn't need to rent tablecloths and that my wedding would have a finished look. Cake cutting service was also included. The staff was very friendly and Gary and Carol were both there to greet me on my wedding day which was nice. My husband and I sat down to our sweet heart table with our cocktail appetizers waiting for us. We were even served and didn't have to get up for food. They were so nice and asked us if we needed anything while we were eating. I was starving at that point so I was very pleased with this! When the wedding was over we were pleased to find left overs boxed up for us and our cake too. We ate wedding left overs for the next two days and loved it! We got compliments on how good the food was from our guests. I was happy with our decision to go with Carefree Catering and so was my husband and Dad.

    Carefree Catering makes your gathering Care Free......

    Carol Shepherd, owner of CareFree Catering, was one of the nicest, most conscientious, professional people I have ever done business with. Not only was the food delicious, both vegetarian and regular, the staff was so professional and fun to be around they help make one of the greatest days in my life, perfect. I am the father of the bride. I had 12 people want the recipe for the meatballs on the appetizer table. My daughter and now son in law live in Pennsylvania, so my wife and I had to do all the leg work here in Florida. We interviewed 3 caterers. Care free was right in the middle price wise, but over the top in actual service. Although my daughter picked 90 % of what they wanted, Carol knew so many little things we just wouldn't have thought of to make it perfect. They were very flexible and very help full. The place settings were beautiful. Every thing was on time, complete,they missed nothing. We couldn't be happier with Carol and her amazing staff. I will never hire any one else for anything catering related and will highly recommend these fine people to any else. They made one of the greatest days in our families history, perfect, beautiful and tasty.. Thanks Carol..Lee, Bonnie,Jenn and Sam.
