  • After a few emails back and forth with Sabrina, we set up a phone call. In a detailed meeting that lasted over an hour, I was feeling confident in her attention to detail and general concern for our needs. She promised a quote by the end of that week, but we didn't get one. A follow up a week later was met with her apologizing for being ill the previous week and a guarantee that we'd see a quote within 48 hours, but surprise - that never came. I followed up one more time to give her a chance and still haven't heard back. We are very disappointed and now have to start back at square one (and circle back to other potential vendors that we left hanging while waiting for Early Katering to do their job). If we weren't the right fit, at least let us know that you don't want our money so we can find someone who does. Heed the reviews (the YELP ones seem to ring the most true) and spend your precious energy elsewhere :(

    Sara Want to apologize again for your experience with our previous sales representative. Thank you for allowing Michelle to work with you. We are looking forward to a very positive experience for your wedding.
