Lake Norman in North Carolina is the largest man-made lake in the State, which is located in the northern part of Mecklenburg County, just 18 miles northwest of the Center City Charlotte. It runs North past the under construction billion dollar mixed use development of Langtree at the Lake, and continues for a total of 33 miles. It is sometimes called an "Inland Sea," with over 520 miles of beautiful shoreline and 9 miles wide.
After many years of watching other Catering companies cater events on Championship Yacht Charters, a 100 ft. luxury charter boat on Lake Norman, we looked to launch our own Event Catering firm. However, when other catering companies dropped the ball, we were forced to launch sooner than expected. So, with Chef Alexander, our Born On date was June 2011. Yes, just born, just launched, but with tons of experience. Our people have years of experience, just someplace else and now are growing with us!
So, being tested with only last minute events in a short time span makes us proud, but we had to test the waters literally. We had to cater these events with everything on the boat, included extra food in hot boxes, cold storage and everything we needed to pull off a successful event for our clients. So we have become a success on the water, and our clients has asked us to launch on land, and we did on September 15th, 2011.
But as the new kid on the block, we never in our dreams expected such success. In less than sixteen months, we have successfully planned & catered 94 events, serving over 10,000 guests from, 40 to 150 people at a time and one for over 2500 for lunch during the DNC, ranging from several corporate outings, NASCAR Teams, a national major sponsors event, to a board meeting, several weddings, a charity golf tournament, international clients, and many private parties. All with rave reviews and many said our Carolina Smoked Pulled Pork, Beef Brisket, Sweet BBQ Meatballs and our Spinach & Artichoke Dip are best they have tasted.
In the Fall of 2012, we found that the Catered Food is the most important part of any planned event, so we began to offer Event Planning Services around our Catering Services, hence the name Event Catering Services! So allow us to plan our Catered food around your special event!
Since launching on land & sea, we have secured a few Lake Norman limited service hotel clients to cater food for the hotel meeting spaces, a lake front wedding venue, and the Charles Mack Citizens Center in historic downtown Mooresville.
Early February 2013, we secured The Pit, home of Lake Norman's 150,000 SF all Indoor Venue with Adult Go-Carts and may other indoor activities.
By mid-February 2013, we secured an event management company with 5 Venues that hold up to 500 guests. They are located in Statesville, Lake Norman (Cornelius), Uptown Center City Charlotte and Southpark, all in Metro Charlotte. Our traditional wedding menu's were customized for these venues.
By the end of February 2013, we did 14 days in a row, with on-set Catering, for a local film production company, "Quite No More Films" for the filming of the movie "My Name is Paul".
Starting April 2013, we start our new partnership with Carolina Commercial Kitchens near Uptown Charlotte. We will handle catering for our Uptown Charlotte & Southpark clients from this new 5,000 SF facility. Our Lake Norman clients will be serviced from our present Lake Norman Catering Facility!
With over 160+ events in a little over two years, and all the new Venue Partners, what will the rest of 2013 bring us?
We Cater to Your Every Need!
