    Food and service was EXCELLENT

    The first thing you need to know about Hoopla is that the food– appetizers, cocktails, dinner, and dessert– is EXCELLENT. The reason why Hoopla is a must-book catering company for your event is not just because of the amazing food, but also the attentive, above average customer service from Dori and the Hoopla team.

    Do yourself a favor and hire Hoopla!

    If you’re considering Hoopla catering for any event, stop what you’re doing and book them now. It’s been over a month since we worked with Hoopla for our December 2019 wedding and people are STILL raving to us about how awesome our food was! We were referred to Hoopla by our planners, The Otherside Creatives, but their quality and service speak for themselves. Under the same umbrella as the revered Food Market restaurant in Hampden, Hoopla offers the same individualized attention and creative deliciousness of a made-to-order meal, but on a larger scale. We began our Hoopla journey with Dori, the director of guest relationships. Dori was like our concierge through the whole process and made us feel like a part of the Hoopla family. At first we didn’t have a clear vision for what we wanted food-wise, but Dori listened to our thoughts and inspiration, collaborated with the culinary team, and translated our vision into a menu that was a perfect fit for our tastes, vibe, and price point. We got to enjoy our tasting in the private kitchen at The Food Market in the company of the chef who would be in charge the day of our wedding. We met with the catering and logistics team beforehand - John, Kat, and Todd - and could trust them entirely with the job at hand. I can’t emphasize enough how attentive the Hoopla team was to our needs, and went above and beyond to plan for working at our newly constructed venue.

    When you hire Hoopla for your catered event, do yourself a favor and be sure to have a “Table of Awesomeness” for your guests - this charcuterie extravaganza was the HIT of our party and set a tone for the meal ahead. Our guests were impressed with the caliber of service from the Hoopla wait staff - there was never a line at the bar and guests raved about the kindness and attentiveness of the staff. Our dinner was a family style meal of fried chicken, rockfish, potatoes au gratin, and a brussels sprouts/carrots side. All of our guests complimented how delicious and fresh the food was and reported that they felt they had plenty to eat.

    I couldn’t be happier with our decision to hire Hoopla and look forward to getting to celebrate our anniversaries at The Food Market - not every catering company has a brick-and-mortar affiliate where you can remember the taste of your wedding day!! I truly wish I had another event to plan just so I could work with Hoopla again.

    Delicious and beautiful!

    WOW! Hoopla did an amazing job catering our wedding! The food was so delicious, it was beautifully displayed and plated, and the servers were super nice and helpful. We received SO many compliments on the food at our wedding—from the many fun and yummy appetizers (gazpacho shooters, tuna, cauliflower, pretzel with beer cheese, etc.) to the family style meal (the salmon was incredible) we all shared with our tables, it was SUCH a hit. Dori was also super great in helping us plan the wedding. I am SO THRILLED that we chose to work with Hoopla!
