Delivery orders

Want us to come to you? Delivery orders are perfect for a more casual type of entertaining. Our trained delivery staff will assist with basic set up and ensure that your order is on time. All items are sent in disposable containers and platters. Delivery charges are based on time of delivery and location and scheduled within a 45 minute window of your choice.


Looking for an elevated presentation but don’t want staff? An Executive Set Up is a delivery option that provides more than just a drop off.  Our Executive Set Up delivery team will come to your location and set up your food using linens, chafers, decorative serving platters and risers. Additional fees may include rental of chafers, linens, and pick up of the equipment. Executive Set Ups are scheduled within a one-hour window of your choice.


Hosting a large group? Cooking on site? Need full service event production with audio/video and all of the works? Our serving personnel, event planners and trained chefs will do everything required to create the perfect event so you can relax and enjoy the occasion. Event staff hours will be charged based on your specific event details. Most events require two-hour set up and a one hour clean up in addition to your actual event time.

When you’re planning your event in the San Jose, Sunnyvale, Mountain View, Palo Alto or other Silicon Valley CA area, Handheld Catering knows just what to do. We pride ourselves on our ability to build a pop up kitchen on site, which allows us to cook all of our food onsite. This means that you and your guests will eat the freshest food possible! This also means that you have greater flexibility in choosing the venue for your event.

We know that event planning can be stressful. That’s why we connect you with an all-star event coordinator that works with you from the start. Our event coordinator will be onsite at your event so you don’t have to worry about anything except enjoying the event! All the details will be in place to make your event a memorable one.
