While we usually focus our Maui catering blog on providing helpful tips about planning events and getting married on Maui, once in a while we like to share feedback clients provide about our catering services. Last week, soon after catering a Christmas party for the King Kamehameha III school teachers and staff we received several email messages containing accolades. Though it was our great pleasure to contribute to the community and to the work of the teachers and school staff, we are grateful for and proud of the kind words expressed:

Well you out did yourself from last year…I didnt think it could be any better but the comments from our staff members was all thumbs up! I was away yesterday, but when I came in today all I heard was how excellent the food was and that the choices of entrees was wonderful. No one went hungry…you satisfied even our pickiest of eaters. Wonderful job! I am so happy and appreciative that I can call you my friend and how much aloha you share with our school community. I’m going to have to get a bigger keg this time to make the appropriate toast for all you have done for me and the staff. You made it even more special.
Much aloha, Barry

Mahalo to you and your staff,
Thank You to the teachers and staff at Kamehameha III. May your Christmas season be blessed and filled with happiness. We believe it is important for local businesses to contribute to our community and we especially enjoy helping our keiki and teachers. It was a pleasure and honor sharing your celebration! Im happy you let us know you needed a few special dietary meals. It is always fun utilizing my professional culinary skills to create gluten free dishes.
