Gathering together with friends and family almost always begs the question, “what are we going to eat?!” When I’m attending the gathering, I look forward to the event carefree, but when I’m hosting the gathering, it’s a different story.
Planning an event—big or small—can be stressful and time consuming. The team at Ori’Zaba’s has been a lifesaver for many of my gatherings, so I can enjoy the company of my guests worry-free and still pull off an incredible event. Even the best planner’s deserve a little support, right?
When I’m ready to plan an event, I count on the catering team to help me whip up a perfect mix of comfort foods, platters, and drinks. They can also make suggestions on what menu options make the most sense based on my budget, along with offering suggestions on how much food to prepare for the size of the event. The catering menu offers an extensive variety of crowd pleasing foods and serving styles, such as family style platters, buffet style trays, themed platters and bundles, and even a la carte options, so there’s no shortage of options to fulfill my vision.
Before I started catering my gatherings, my biggest concerns were the cost and quality of food. I mean, what good is catering with hidden fees lurking around the corner? With Ori’Zaba’s, there’s transparent pricing and several serving styles, so there are no surprises and there’s something for every budget. Plus, the food is so good.
Smooth sailing service
Working with a team of experienced professionals is priceless. It can really make a difference in how the day of the event plays out. Dealing with a catering issue on the day of is not my idea of fun. From the first time I connect with the Ori’Zaba’s team, all the way through the day of the event, their dependable team shares updates and does everything they can to ensure a smooth, hassle-free event.
