    Absolutely Amazing

    Premiere Catering was not only one of the most professional companies I have ever worked with, they were just the nicest people as well! From start to finish they were there for all of our questions and concerns and they put us at ease. I seriously felt like a VIP every time we went in to talk to them. When our 150 person guest count wedding went down to just 20 people they were ready to do what ever we needed to still have the wedding of our dreams which still included the best food! The food was just as extraordinary as their professionalism. I looked around as everyone was eating and I knew that we had picked the right people! Nothing but satisfied faces. I cannot express enough how much you will love Premiere!

    John and his staff are absolutely top notch!

    There are no words that could express how thankful we are to John and his staff in making our daughter's wedding a success. His service is unbelievable. We had our daughter's wedding over the weekend and every guest said over and over how delicious the food was and how attentive his staff was. We were so pleased with every single thing they provided from the food, bartenders and staff.
