Our legendary service and our commitment to quality are why so many event coordinators make us their first call when it comes to catering. They know that our commitment doesn't stop when the food is delivered or the meal is done. We wouldn't be Trojans if we did!

All catering orders come with all the necessary plates, cups, utensils, and condiments that you'll need. Plus we offer a wide array of beverages that can be ordered to fit your exact needs. So call us for your next catered event - you won't be sorry you did. We promise!

In addition, every catering order placed with us will help reduce your carbon footprint! We are happy to report that 100% of our disposable packaging is either compostable, bio-degradable, recyclable and/or made from 100% post-consumer materials. So not only do you get great food at reasonable prices, you'll feel even better knowing that you are helping our environment at the same time.
