    Highly recommend type a catering

    Diane was absolutely amazing from start to finish. She was organized, an excellent communicator, and genuine. Most importantly the food was GREAT! As a couple affected by COVID-19, Diane was so easy to work with, working through the multiple reschedules and venue restrictions with us. I cannot emphasize enough how great she was to work with. I highly recommend hiring Type A Catering!

    Type a catering is the dream team

    If I could advise one thing to any future bride planning her wedding, it would be this: HIRE DIANE KELLUM WITH TYPE A CATERING. Do it now.

    The company is aptly named Type A as Diane is every bit of it and as a bride you'll be so so so thankful she is. Diane is more than a caterer- she fills in all the gaps and grey areas when it comes to the reception planning. Everything from rentals to food to timing and more- she'll be thinking of things you never dreamed of needing to plan. She has plan A, plan B, and plan C locked, loaded, and ready-to-go for your event.

    After our initial tasting, my husband and I counted down the days until we could eat her food again. We were overwhelmed with our good fortune of booking her so late considering our wedding was slotted for one of the most popular dates of 2021.

    Diane's food is not "wedding food", it is quite literally fine dining. Don't be alarmed by any negative reviews regarding the bar. She is upfront about serving alcohol and her legal obligations and we were all on the same page. We had not a single issue with our open bar and guests the entire night.

    Our menu included shrimp & grits, spinach artichoke puffs, brie & berry skewers, and bourbon date rumaki for appetizers, spring berry salads, bourbon cream chicken and bourbon BBQ brisket for entrees, green beans, mac 'n cheese, and fingerling potatoes as sides, and a late night snack chicken & waffle station.

    (We also hired her for my bridal shower and that food was to die for as well)

    Diane is nothing if not consistently exceeding expectations! 10/10

    Great bar caterer!

    We hired Type A for the bar catering for our wedding. Diane was very organized and great to work with. We used another caterer for our food and she helped us coordinate with them seamlessly.
