Michael M.

Nov 17, 2009 - I have had the pleasure of having the Purple Picnic People cater two large graduation parties for my children. I would not call them just caterers as much as performers. They perform every function that you would expect and about a 100 that you don't expect. From assisting with your menu to set up and cleanup they are seamless and the ultimate professionals. The menu is as diversified as you will find and the food is 5 Star. Our guest raved at the presentation, service and quality of the food. Kevin and.his staff make having an affair enjoyable. Having the opportunity to enjoy your own party and speak with your guest without worry, is the ultimate compliment I can give to the Purple Picnic People staff. Guest at our parties have also used Purple Picnic People after seeing the quality and service and have thanked us for introducing them. It is rare today when you pay for a service to feel like you got a deal, Purple Picnic People are the real deal.


Nov 23, 2009 - In June 2009 we had the Purple Picnic People cater a party at our house for 100 people. The food was delicious and the service was great. We had been to a party that they had catered and I was so impressed, that I knew they would be perfect for our function. Kevin was so helpful in picking out the menu. The seafood kabobs were amazing. I highly recommend the Purple Picnic People!

Vic P.

Dec 1, 2009 - Top Notch!! Kevin and crew consistently under promise yet over deliver with a first rate event. The food is always great and the service is courteous and on time.
