Penenden Deli Events
H ow did it begin?
Unofficially we began our event catering journey long before we started sharing this with you all. We first started taking part in event catering when a local firm near us asked Penenden Deli to prepare a buffet lunch for a meeting, we did several buffets for this firm after that. After that we started preparing birthday buffets for one of our regular customers, which eventually resulted in them hiring out our cafe for a baby shower, we decorated our cafe and provided tasty nibbles for the mother to be.
However that wasn't when we officially decided to event cater full time, this happened when one of our regular customers came into our cafe one day and asked us to cater for her big day. This was an amazing challenge for us, as we had never catered for a wedding before. Nevetherless we were ready to take on the big challenge; the wedding was a huge success! We provided our pastries as appetisers followed by our BBQ/ hot food buffet menu; serving beef and pulled pork to guests along with salads, pastas, rolls, colesaw. Later on in the day we provided burgers and hot dogs (this wedding was an all day outdoor type wedding). We was even asked to come back in the morning to serve breakfast for our bride and special guests who stayed in teepees overnight at the venue.
Our first wedding was in April and since then we have been undated with event catering requests. We can since served 100 guests at a 40th birthday party, a summer pool party for 50 guests, a charity buffet for 60 guests, an engagement party for 100 guests and a buffet for a birthday party of 80. We also have a wedding booked in for 2019. We have been so busy and we are so grateful for that!
We have had amazing reviews, but don't take our word for it, read our amazing reviews on Facebook!
