I just wanted to say “thanks” for a job well done with the delivered lunch on Tuesday. It was right on time, and the person set up everything so it was ready to serve. Everyone loved the food, including me. Wow! The barbecue pulled pork and beans were outstanding. Our client raved about the food, and asked where it was from. We proudly told them who, and how we know each other, and also gave them the Web site address so they could check out Andrews Catering for themselves. When we mentioned that the restaurant was coming soon, they all wanted to know when and where. You guys added to the great impression we made on them, and it was a VERY big meeting for our company to have. The outcome can have a significant positive impact for us. We put our trust in you to help us make the most of it, and you definitely were a factor in making it a success. Thanks!

I chose Andrew’s Catering for my dear friend’s 10th anniversary celebration of recovery from high risk cancer. The guests were the most important people in her life. Andrew spent a lot of time with me working on the menu that would best suit the event. It was outdoors in the evening so he devised a combination of elegant food with a casual tone. The appetizers were a knockout shrimp and beef tenderloin followed by chicken and ribs for dinner. Everything was cooked fresh at my home on the smoker and grill where guests were greeted by wonderful cooking aromas as they approached the gate.

Andrew’s staff was competent, friendly, and professional; knowing just when to take a plate or refill a glass.

They were also very helpful in setting up the other vendors including bartending services, live music, photography, and rentals, saving me a lot of time and effort.

The guests still talk about the great food and many have asked how to get in touch with Andrew so they can hire him for their own events.

I will definitely use Andrew’s Catering again. They are great at small, more intimate events such as mine, but have also done a super job at corporate picnics I have attended. Their barbecue simply can’t be beat.

As the Facility Manager for Circle Bar Ranch, a wedding and reception venue in Fountain Hills, I have worked with Andrew Vander Stoep of Andrew’s Catering on many occasions. I have been very pleased with his service, professionalism, and quality of food. Andrew and his staff have proven time and time again to be trustworthy and truly dedicated to making my clients’ culinary experience exceptional. I am happy to discuss his qualifications further if need be, and can be reached at my office.

Even though I have not been asked to provide a reference letter for Andrew’s Catering, I make it a habit to support excellent vendors by a follow-up response in that our company so highly values its business relationship.

We have utilized Andrew’s for several small to mid-size company lunch events. Even when we only pay for a drop-off, their representative is always very conscientious as to insuring that everything is ready and to our satisfaction prior to leaving.

We have also used Andrew’s for our annual company picnic which can be for up to 200 guests. The response from our employees and their families has been very enthusiastic. They particularly love the barbecue entrees for which Andrew is so well known.

This last year, I used Andrew’s for a very important personal celebration at my home which was more formal. The event was held outside on a large patio with round tables and linens with flowers and candles. The menu included appetizers and several entrees along with a fabulous custom cake. We also had a full bar. Andrew handled everything personally including the rental items, the bartender, the florist and the live music. He cooked the food on-site and it was hot off the grill and served precisely at my request as the evening naturally progressed. His staff was gracious, always smiling, and seemed to know just when to stay back and when to step up to offer refills, remove plates, and or pour wine. My guests are still talking about the food and Andrew’s developed many new client relationships from that evening including a large law firm and a major bank.

Without hesitation, I recommend the wonderful food and good service provided by Andrew’s Catering. We will use them time and rime again.

It is my pleasure to write this letter to express my satisfaction with Andrew’s Catering. I am the owner of Cozy Weddings in Gilbert, and have had the opportunity to recommend Andrew and his company on many occasions to client who are planning weddings.

Without exception, my clients have been completely thrilled with the quality of food and service provided by Andrew’s. Not only are they very professional during the planning stages, they always deliver fresh food to the delight of our guest. In addition, Andrew has been more than willing to personally prepare a tasting event for the clients at no extra charge. I have never witnessed a client who did not enthusiastically hire Andrew’s Catering after they have tasted the food.

I have been impressed with Andrew and his staff who understand that customer service is the most important thing. I recommend them with the utmost confidence.

Dear Jodi, I am writing to thank you and everyone from Andrew’s Catering who took part in our wedding reception on May 19, 2007. Your advice was spot-on and your coordination of the event was perfect.

Everything from the setup to the cleanup was outstanding. I didn’t have to worry about a thing! The food was delicious and plentiful. Eric and his staff were outstanding. I was amazed and pleased with all of the compliments that we received about the food and the service. For several weeks after the wedding we were still hearing from our friends and family about how great the food was, how polite, friendly, efficient and helpful Eric and his staff were.

Our wedding was a beautiful and worry free event and I just wanted you to know how much we appreciate it!

My 50th birthday is December 2008 and I’m already planning to use Andrew’s to cater for us. If we have any other events prior to that, we’ll be in touch.
