Exceptional service!!

I would recommend Spice Catering to anyone who is looking for a fantastic food vender for their special event. We booked Spice Catering for our October 2023 and couldn’t be happier, Debbie, the event coordinator worked closely with my husband and I on every request we had for our special day. The attention to detail and the need to accommodate our vision made our wedding planning a breeze. I am very big on detail and organization. Debbie made our day stress free and organized, where I did not have to worry about ANYTHING! She communicated closely with my venue and other vendors as well.

The service was great but overall the food was PHENOMENAL. All of my guests were completely satisfied and I received so many compliments. The staff was friendly, professional and organized. I give this vendor FIVE STARS.
