3. Do you provide themed menus?

Yes, and we love them! Themed menus for corporate events is becoming really popular. At Handheld Catering, we’re happy to discuss your ideas and plan a menu around them.

4. When should I place my corporate catering order?

We request our clients to give us as much advance notice as possible. While we can accommodate last minute orders if we are available, orders that are placed earlier enable us to plan better. However, we can provide corporate lunches with as little as 48-hour notice.

While we are based in Santa Clara, we are happy to provide our corporate catering services to the greater San Francisco Bay Area. Giving us a call or inquiring through our online contact form is the best way to find out if your event is within our service area.

6. Can I taste your food before placing my order?

We will be glad to organize tastings for your event. We advise our clients to book their tastings at least a week in advance to give our Executive Chef sufficient time to get all their menu items. Though we charge $100 per person for tastings, we will deduct the $100 from the final amount if you choose to book with us.

Our full-service corporate event catering company can customize your package to include tables, chairs, tents, servers, silverware, plates, tablecloths, and even the décor. Be sure to mention these needs up-front.
