    Absolute Best!

    We hired Chowgirls for our wedding at Solar Arts Building on 9/25/21 and we couldn't have had a better experience! Our guests raved about how good the food was and the professionalism of their team blew us away. Our wedding was so amazing and we could not have pulled it off without them! Thank you!!

    Amazing, high quality, no stress

    My experience with Chowgirls at Solar Arts was phenomenal the whole way through. Jenna went above and beyond to ensure all our wants and needs were met. Not to mentioned, we postponed our wedding due to the COVID pandemic, and Jenna was still there for us every step of the way. Jenna made everything such a breeze for us and she was extremely organized and succinct throughout the process. We were extremely happy with the service we received and knew the money we were spending went toward high quality services, food, drinks, etc. Jenna and her team took care of everything and my husband and I did not have to stress or worry about the small things that do add up. It was priceless to see the looks and joys of our guests during our reception as everything came together.

    Best food ever!

    I can't say enough positive things about Chowgirls catering! We recently had our wedding at Solar Arts and had our catering through Chowgirls - best decision ever!

    Firstly, the food was all amazing - we had passed appetizers, a plated dinner, and an assortment of pies for dessert and it was ALL perfection! After our tasting we were so excited for our guests to taste the delicious food on the day-of and have received numerous compliments! Their seasonal menus have such a wide variety so it is likely impossible to make a bad decision which also makes it easy!

    One of the other first things we loved about Chowgirls (other than the food itself!) was their use of local ingredients and achievements in sustainability and the elimination of food waste. It is important to us to work with companies that are not only amazing with their product/service but that they are also going above that to make impacts in their community.

    Lastly, we got to work with Jenna Anderson throughout the process. She helped us with both our venue coordination (Solar Arts) and the catering. I can't possibly say enough good things about her and we are so lucky that we got to work with her on our special day!

    Chowgirls Catering's reply:

    Hi Hope! We're so glad to hear you had such a positive experience for your wedding at Solar Arts. We love making the dreams for your big day come to life and we are so happy you and your guests enjoyed the food and service of your zero-waste event. And we agree Jenna is awesome! We're very lucky to have her on our team. Wishing you all the best. - The Chowgirls Team
