Lori and Kelly,   
Hi…thank you so much for everything. It’s been a little crazy since I came back to work. Sorry I am just getting to email you back. Everything was wonderful.
 
We have gotten so many compliments on how amazing the food was and how wonderful the staff was. Everyone was so outgoing and courteous from beginning to end. The little touches from the food to the bar and again the staff was what we at VEC like to call “5 Star”. Thank you for holding my hand the whole way through since I met you both and thank you for coming in on our wedding day and just taking over.
 
It was truly filled with wonderful and un-forgetful memories. My favorite is when my dad and I were waiting in the sand to walk down the aisle and I just happened to look back at the house and saw Kelly standing over the balcony and she gave me the thumbs up. At that moment I felt myself breath…
 
Thank you both you just don’t know how much we appreciate everything.
We will definitely be using you for my years and events to come.

Dear Kelly and Lori (and colleagues),
You guys were wonderful! I would not have made it through this week and this weekend if you had not made this party such an easy, seamless, turnkey operation.
The food was delicious, the table decorations were elegant, and the service was smooth, attentive, and perfectly orchestrated.
Thank you so much for all of your efforts! I will be thrilled to recommend you highly to anyone who needs a reference about your catering services. (Feel free to share this message with others.)
Thanks and best regards,
Susan

Subject:THANK YOU!!!

This note of thanks is so long overdue, but it was time. First, thanks for being my (our) partner in making all of our events absolutely amazing. Working through all of the little details to get everything just right and to make sure no detail is overlooked is a talent that not everyone has.

Lori, I appreciate you always making time for me, for never missing a beat and always making everything look beautiful.
Kelly, thank you for your amazing menu creations, trying new things, and constantly trying to improve and tweak items that are already perfect, even more perfect-er:).
I deeply admire both of you for your creativity, passion and drive. We're so lucky to have you as our event partner.

And to your staff, especially after 3 events in 24 hours, thank you. BIG HUGE THANK YOU!!! I appreciate each and every one of your team. They are all professional, kind, attentive and respectful. They take pride in what they do and that level of care always shines through.

It truly is a pleasure to work with all of you and it really is one of the highlights of my job. Looking forward to many more years of working with you as our event partner and my friends. Thanks! Lots of love!!!

The Yummy Goodness Team is beyond a doubt--- OUTSTANDING! You will not be disappointed with their service or their phenomenal food. From the very beginning, Lori and Kelly were flexible, professional, courteous, attentive, and responsive. They made us feel like we were the most important clients they were working with.

Tyler and I chose Yummy Goodness because of their ability to plan and coordinate custom menus for our wedding at a reasonable price. When we went to the tasting, Lori and Kelly rolled out their best and showed us what they are all about—Eating well! They were attentive with our concerns and requests from the beginning. From then we were confident we were making the right catering choice by going with Yummy Goodness. We had our wedding reception at a Sandbridge Beach home – The Regency. We wanted the event to be intimate and we wanted our guests to RAVE about the food.

What Yummy Goodness delivered was absolutely exceptional. From the cocktail hour to the reception, our guests were coming to us and telling us about how impressed they were with the food selection and taste. After all the guests had cleared out and the party had wound down, only our close family was left at the Beach House with us and people broke out the left overs and were arguing over the brisket!!! It was so funny. And yes, the Brisket is AMAZING. Other things on the menu that were raved about were the lemon herb risotto cakes, pecan and panko crusted chicken tenders, and carnitas mini tostadas!!! SO good! We whole-heartedly recommend you choose Yummy Goodness to cater your events if you want to eat well and impress your guests! They have high standards for quality and service and will exceed your expectations.

Ladies dinner was awesome! The gluten free stuffing was great! My mother is a breast cancer survivor and has been completing chemo and radiation treatment. She has complained of not being able to taste her food due to treatment.
She took one bite and said " I can taste it!" It was nice to see her smile. Happy Thanksgiving and thank you.

Kelly,                                                                                                                     10-26-15

Wanted to send you a quick note and thank you for such wonderful food and service you provided yesterday.  Everyone raved about the food! I think I saw some ladies go back for thirds!  Also, I can't leave out Sheila and Tina.  They were professional, courteous and friendly.
On another note...I know your holidays are filling up fast, so when would you need my husband to chat with you about his Xmas party?
Lastly, I meant to ask you yesterday...is your kitchen kosher? Have you ever done luncheons at Jewish temples?  Thank you again for a job well done!

Best regards,
Stephanie Saunders

Thank you so much for the time and energy you put into Abbie’s wedding reception.  You are two talented ladies and we appreciate more than you know the extra effort that you put in to align your food presentation with our theme.  Alan and I were blown away by the food.  So many guests took the time to tell us what a great job you did.  They also complemented you and your staff on their professionalism and willingness to go the extra mile to assist.  We can’t thank you enough for all that you did to make our baby’s day one we will never forget.  If you ever need a reference, please feel free to call upon us.  Have a great summer!  Gayle Bartlett

My dear Kelly and Lori:
This is long overdue and belated.
 
However, I must pause and take time to THANK YOU and YOUR STAFF for accommodating a beautiful setting and delicious food for the Reception at the ”REDEPOSIT OF THE TIME CAPSULE”  on January 17. 
From our first conversation and confirming the date,  Yummy Goodness did what they do best - - take care of their customer - - and you do it so royally.   I cannot say enough to express my sincere gratitude.
 
The success of this event is shared by many, but much of it is only because of your ability, willingness and delegation to insure it was one of which we can all be proud and in 2063, those witnessing the Opening will be well informed and proud of their heritage.  I sincerely hope you are there and will still be the best caterer ever.
 
THANK YOU

Lori, Kelly, and the whole Yummy crew…
I don’t even know where to begin with thanking all of you for making our wedding reception every bit of perfect. Lori and Kelly, from the start of our planning to the very end of our reception, you made it all so easy and fun. You were easy to talk to and approachable in every way. You walked us through every detail, you made yourselves constantly available to us through the whole process, and the food…OMG the food. Every single guest complimented the food and asked us for your contact info. Every.Single.One. You totally pulled off the Italian menu and vision we had imagined. We didn’t want an outdated wedding menu or a menu that guests were used to having.

We wanted everything Italian and wow did you deliver. Pasta, mussels and shrimp, risotto, wedding soup, and Italian sausage with peppers; everything was done just right. Our guests tore through the cocktail Fire Seared Bruschetta Bar before we could get a taste! We’re definitely going to contact you and see if we can order a mini one for us to enjoy on our own.

Throughout the night you found us, pulled us aside, and gave us food. You paid extra attention to our wants as well as the guests wants. If you hadn’t have done that, I don’t think we would’ve had the opportunity to enjoy the food we were so eager to have. You kept our glasses full and a smile on our faces. You went way beyond what we could’ve anticipated. Your level of attention exceeded our expectations.

We adore you. You rock. There just aren’t enough accolades to describe how over the moon we are. You’ll be hearing from us again for all of our catering needs. I’m putting you on my list for work event contacts ASAP. Muwah and mangia! Much love, wishes for prosperity and success to you all….

Hi Kelly and Lori,
I just got home from the Lewis wedding and can still taste that wonderful food.  You said you would email me the BBQ sauce recipe.  I would really appreciate it.
I will definitely recommend you to my friends, you do an excellent job and the food is some of the best I've had at an event.
Thank you so much, Nancy Watkins

        Hello!

I just wanted to let you all know how much our group raved about the lunch! We often have catered lunches and I never hear anyone comment on the food. The all said it was delicious, fresh, impressed with guacamole, and on and on! I actually had recommended they use your company after coming to your cooking class at St. Patrick's. I am also part of Buy Fresh Buy Local, so I love the fact that my coworkers are enjoying local foods! I know we will be using your business again in the future! Great job!
Melody
 
PS. I tried to make the braised cabbage at home and it wasn’t as good as yours Ha!

Good Morning,
Last night we had the great pleasure of attending our son, ROY Z. "wetting down" party at the Smartmouth Brewery in Norfolk.
The evening was wonderful..such a great venue for him and Beth to celebrate with friends.Your food was DELICIOUS!! Everyone was commenting on how much they were enjoying it. The table looked lovely, the choices were nicely identified, everything was easy to pick up etc. We loved the brats, cabbage, potato salad, sandwiches...everything. Roy was very excited about this party and your contributions were outstanding.
Thank you and continued good luck with your business.

Kelly,
Please let me add mine (and Beth's) thanks, as well, for the excellent catering you provided for our party. The menu choices you came up with were fantastic, and the food was every bit as good.
We got lots of compliments on it, so I want to make sure that we passed that along to you.
You guys delivered in every aspect and we can't say enough good things about your business.
Thank you again very much, and please let us know if there's anything else you need from our end. Roy (and Beth) Z.

 
 I would be happy to give you guys a great reference! I am all about a small female-owned business which goes out of their way to do a great job, especially in an extraordinary situation like OpSail.

Dear Yummy Goodness Catering Co ,
Nancy Watkins and I talked to you at the Rinehart / Lewis wedding Reception today. We loved your pulled pork BBQ and are in hopes you can send us your recipe. I will most definitely call on you when our church and I need your great service, which was wonderful. I’ll be putting a little review on my Google for you – see https://plus.google.com/117523378139301925362/about?gl=US&hl=en-US
Sincerely, Bob Perrine

OMG! Just went to a holiday party these ladies catered and I must say I know why they call it Yummy Goodness! The fire seared antipasto platter was AMAZING and the little caramel desserts were so buttery, i could not stop eating them. When I asked the host of the party how she found them, she said they have been using them for their major corporate events for over a year now. They also had some kind of pasta with a tomato cream sauce that was so dreamy, I took a plate of it home to my husband. I have never taken a doggie bag home from a party before! Highly recommended. The staff was very professional and the owners onsite and engaged. Can't say enough about these awesome Yummy Gals :)

In this day and age, it’s hard to find a company you can trust. Yummy Goodness was recommended to me by a friend, and now I know why – the quality of service I received was outstanding. Keep up the good work!
