Providing Catering Services for Every Occasion

On Occasion Catering & Events was founded on the notion that providing the highest-quality food and services is the only way to deliver a truly memorable event. Our innovative catering menus revolve around the seasons, enticing your guests with exciting flavors while our creative presentations serve as a backdrop to your special event.

Fresh from our scratch kitchen

Each event menu is individually tailored to your desires and needs. We take pride in the careful preparation of each menu item, using only the freshest ingredients. We make our own sauces, decorate our own cakes and expertly present each plate to ensure your guests are served the very best!

We are more than Just Culinary Chefs

With a diverse range of experiences, our catering team has perfected the art of delivering "thoughtful hospitality." We obsess about the details, anticipate your needs and are truly passionate about creating a lasting memory for our guests.

Many times after a client compliments our food, presentation or service, we respond with, "We love what we do, and we're glad it shows!" We are not only talented gourmets at On Occasion Catering; we genuinely enjoy working together to make your corporate event, wedding reception or dinner party memorable. We are pleased to share such a broad range of talent and experience.
