"It’s the best I’ve ever had. They have an iconic #19 sandwich on twice baked
bread with Russian dressing, pastrami Swiss cheese" and coleslaw that is the perfect combination of ingredients. It’s all made on the premises and hand cut. The
bread is sourced out, but it’s amazing! They have drive-up service which is great too.

My daughter (the future bride) planned her wedding reception with Chef

I met Chef
West Hartford Caterers Provider Name Locked
prior to the actual wedding. She and her crew were personable, prompt and professional. My daughter was thrilled with the delicious desserts, as were our guests.

When Chef

found out how our wedding cake baker bowed out at the last minute, she baked the bride and groom a special gluten-free wedding cake for them! (as a wedding gift to them)

It was a wonderful relief to know we didn't have to think about tablecloths and table decorations;

They were a joy to work with; we highly recommend them and would definitely use them again.

They’ve been very helpful since we recently moved to the area. They are so nice about introducing us to people in the area and helping us find things. The food is absolutely excellent.

It was excellent. They had a wide variety of food choices. They delivered it to our house. The food was fresh and delicious. I got many complements on it and I have actually recommended them to several other people. The manager did a nice job of working with them and was able to customise the menu to meet their needs.

was professional, prompt and guided me through the entire process. We met well before the party date and agreed on a menu and a budget. He also managed the rental of plates, flatware and wine glasses for the event.
He was prompt and courteous and professional on the day of the party and required very little guidance/assistance in setting up the serving areas.
The food was elegant, delicious and made the entire event feel special. The setup was was pleasing to the eye and fit right in with my decor. Everyone commented on the how delicious everything was. At the end of the event everything was whisked away as

brings all his own equipment and serving ware (aside from using my oven and
West Hartford Caterers Provider Name Locked
top for heating). When he left, it looked as though he hadn't even been there.
The next day the catering rental people picked up the rental items. I didn't have to wash a THING!
There were absolutely no surprises with
West Hartford Caterers Provider Name Locked
. I will definitely use him more often as it really does make these occasions worry-free.

I work for a large corporation, and we had a soda machine, and a
West Hartford Caterers Provider Name Locked
machine contracted with this company at our location. For the entire time that we have had this
West Hartford Caterers Provider Name Locked
company, we have had nothing but complaints. The products stocked in the
West Hartford Caterers Provider Name Locked
machines were always either expired, past their good through dates, or damaged packaging, and the sodas were also in the same condition. When our concerns were expressed,
West Hartford Caterers Provider Name Locked
, the owner of the company responded by saying that we are the smallest facility they have, and that other facilities are being filled twice weekly. Further, by servicing us, they actually
West Hartford Caterers Provider Name Locked
money because no one is buying. I simply reminded her that people will not buy expired and outdated products. She further told us that just because the product is outdated; it does not mean that it is inedible. She said that she serves expired foods to her children and they are fine. I have never dealt with a vendor that was so argumentative to defend poor quality products. She should not be selling these products to clients. Service/refill frequencies were initially every week, then every 21 days, then every 30 days, and at last count, they came 42 days since the last vendor visit. There is no consistency in service days. To be fair, I called another facility that is also using this vendor to see if the problems were unique to our smaller unit, as
West Hartford Caterers Provider Name Locked
claimed. Not surprisingly, they report having the same complaints. One even reported to have purchased a granola bar from the machine that had mold growing on it. This is an example of the quality of the products which they stock in their machines. When a consensus was made to use new vendors, we called to schedule a pickup/removal. We were told we had to give 2 weeks’ notice – fair. We set up a date for removal. The day came and went. When I called for an update – I was told that their truck was broken. (I would think that normal business ethics would constitute a call to notify us of this) I was told that the part has arrived and truck is being repaired as we speak, and that they MAY be able to come out the next day. By now, I’m sure they’ve memorized my phone number. I asked for a follow-up call by the end of the day so that I know how to rearrange my schedule to receive them. I was told, “I can try.” Try, to make a phone call to a client…. Bad business. Worse business, I didn’t receive a phone call neither that day (Thursday), nor Friday. When I tried to call Friday, calls were ignored and unanswered on both the company line, and owner’s mobile number. When I tried to call back the next week, the phones calls were ignored. When I finally reached the owner, we scheduled the removal for Wednesday before noon. I called at 10am to confirm due to the tight timeline we were on, and was told drivers are most likely 10 minutes from arrival. By 11:15, still no one. I tried calling the office number and there was no one to pick up. The phone continued to ring without going to a VM. I called
West Hartford Caterers Provider Name Locked
’s mobile, no answer. After multiple attempts, her receptionist answers her mobile and takes the call. I was to receive a call back with the driver’s ETA, but never received one. Drivers finally show up in an unmarked pickup truck, no formalities, and no uniforms. I felt it very necessary to write a report to let other potential clients know what to expect when working with
West Hartford Caterers Provider Name Locked
(or afbvending.net). There is NO customer service. There is no remediation offered, nor expression of regret for poor service and products. Lastly, there is no respect for client timelines and deadlines. The lack of professionalism is unacceptable for any business. We have never been happier to go without
West Hartford Caterers Provider Name Locked
services.

Provided amazing food for about 30 guests for my mothers 70th birthday. They were prompt, thorough, well dressed and extremely helpful and polite. Even took luggage to our guest room when one of our family members arrived! We couldn't have been happier with their service and would absolutely hire them again.
