"My husband and I got married in May 2017 and Goodrich Gourmet catered our wedding. Both the food and service were incredible! Prior to the event, we had a tasting and meeting at their downtown location. Lauren helped us decide on a menu that fit our needs and budget. The day of the wedding, the food and beverage/bar set-up looked very nice and the staff was so attentive – they were so on top of it that I didn’t have to ask for anything! I would happily recommend Goodrich Gourmet to anyone looking for catering – great staff and great value!"
"I cannot say enough great things about Goodrich Gourmet Catering! They are FABULOUS!!! Sheila Martin was a joy to work with in helping us plan my daughter and son-in-law’s reception. Carol and her team at the reception…AMAZING!!! From my very first contacted with Goodrich to end of the evening when the last remaining rental was packed up, EVERYONE was first rate!!! The food was AWESOME!!! I have never attended a function where every single person raved about the food. It was delicious!!! And the attentiveness of the staff was so appreciated. From the servers to the bartenders, every one of the Goodrich folks were professionals. My daughter and son-in-law couldn’t get over how thoughtful the staff was in making sure they had something to eat and drink throughout the reception. If you are searching for a great caterer, I highly recommend Goodrich Gourmet Catering."
I had many guests tell me that this was the best food they've had at a wedding. We used Goodrich for both our rehearsal dinner and our wedding, and are very happy we did. The food was incredible and the planning process was very easy. We had buffet service and had plenty of leftovers -- we're still eating food out of our freezer! Be sure to try the shrimp & grits and the beef tenderloin -- it was fantastic!"

"Lauren Goodrich is an absolute wizard. She's amazing and wonderful and her team is the best. I had waitstaff check in with me often, but not too often, to make sure that I had everything that I needed. They were super attentive. I never needed to go ask anyone for anything. We didn't want traditional "wedding food". We wanted our wedding to be fun and we wanted fun food. Most of the caterers that we talked to didn't seem to understand that, but when I told Lauren that I wanted "sophisticated food truck food," she knew exactly what I meant. For cocktail hour, we had mini grilled cheeses with tomato soup shots, bao buns, buffalo chicken on pita chips, and spring rolls. Dinner got rave reviews. When I said I wanted a mac & cheese bar, we got amazing cheddar mac & cheese with every possible topping you can imagine. The taco/fajita bar was great, the pulled pork was better than some BBQ places I've been to, and the made-to-order hamburger sliders were awesome. It's been 5 days and I'm still eating the leftovers that they packed up in a picnic basket for us. When we asked for local craft beer, we got to hand-select 3 different varieties in addition to our choice of a domestic beer. Every time we needed to make a change, Lauren handled it easily. When I learned a month before the wedding that I had some guests who were gluten-free, she had a tray of gluten-free mac & cheese made just for them. They said it was the best mac & cheese they've ever had and they were so grateful that we were able to accommodate them. The team from Goodrich also set up the entire reception for us, since the ceremony and reception were being held in the same room and they did a beautiful job. The whole place looked gorgeous. It was a perfect night and I am so glad that we hired Goodrich Gourmet. I don't think we could have done it without them."

"Goodrich Gourmet gave us the absolute best service that I could have hoped for during the planning process, and on our wedding day. We picked them because we needed a special menu- my husband is vegetarian and I don't do well with dairy. So we were very worried that we would have a very hard time finding someone to meet our dietary needs without compromising on taste or creativeness of the food offerings. I met Lauren, the owner, at a Bridal Show, and she assured me that we could sit down with her chef and come up with something that would work. We decided on a Japanese/hibachi style dinner, and we were very impressed at the tasting- even my parents who were skeptical about not having meat or dairy. Goodrich Gourmet also provided our day-of coordinator, our cupcakes, our rentals- table linens, table décor, extra chairs, tables, and lighting including set-up and breakdown- as well as five event staff members. Our guests really enjoyed the food offerings, and the catering team did an amazing job during event breakdown- it was all pretty much done in 30 minutes- which really helped my family out. I have nothing but positive things to say about working with Goodrich Gourmet. Their team was very supportive during my planning process, answering my many emails trying to sort out all the details and make sure we had thought of everything. I especially was grateful for Lauren's ability to calm my worries and ensure me that everything would be ok. That meant the world to me. Consider using them for your event; you won't regret it!"

"Lauren and Dale of Goodrich Gourmet Catering are the BEST! My daughter was getting married in Virginia and her Mother and I live in Florida. This meant coordinating everything over the phone. Lauren was prompt with all quotes, emails and phone calls. A lot of our calls took place outside the conventional business hours and days. We went through about four revisions on our event menu before we finally decided. Lauren was extremely patient with our requests and concerns and very accommodating. On the day of the wedding her team was on time and prepared. Our venue consisted of 110 guests. Lauren and team kept everything flowing. We never ran out of food and numerous comments from our guest on the quality! From the bacon wrapped scallops to the awesome Mac & Cheese bar everything was delicious and hot! At one point we ran out of White Wine... Lauren came and asked if I would like her to get more to which we said "Yes"! It seemed like only a few minutes had passed and the bar was flowing white and red again. They have an eclectic menu that will rock your taste buds! You owe it to yourself to call Lauren and Dale for any of your catering needs. With Goodrich Gourmet you get service and quality that are both off the charts.
Thanks team Goodrich!"

"All of the lunches have been delicious, filling, eye appealing, excellent price and the drivers have displayed the utmost in customer service with their explanation of the meals, smiles, and kind demeanor. I have given your contact information to several people in our sessions this week.
"I could not have ask for more! Goodrich catering was PERFECT and exactly what we wanted. Easy to work with, great at communication, delivered exactly what was promised and it was all so delicious! I wish I could have them cater my dinner at home every night. :) They even checked on me (the bride) during the wedding to make sure I was getting enough of the food I wanted and if I needed anything else. At the end of the night they gave us a picnic basket filled with each type of food to take to our hotel room with us. I highly recommend the buffalo chicken triangles. That was my favorite!"
"We cannot thank Goodrich Gourmet enough for all they did for us! Lauren was so flexible and easy to work with. I honestly believe our day wouldn't have been the same without ALL of their assistance and direction! Lauren and her staff truly went above and beyond to make sure everything was in it's place, and to make sure that we had an opportunity to actually eat. Several of our guests even asked us who they were so they could get their contact info. I highly recommend Goodrich Gourmet (and Lauren herself) and their quality of work to anyone looking for a fun, focused, flexible, and overall great caterer who delivers not only amazing food but a wonderful experience!"
"Goodrich Gourmet was a fantastic choice as the caterer for our wedding! Dale and Lauren were always attentive to our questions and responded back very quickly to any and all questions we had leading up to the big day. I have heard stories about how difficult caterers can be, but I wouldn't have known it based on the great service we received. Their prices were very reasonable, especially based on the other caterers we looked at. When you combine that with the top notch service and professionalism we received I doubt we could have picked a better caterer. The food was wonderful and our guests had nothing but great things to say about it. With only 6 days until our wedding day I realized I had forgotten to order hor d'oeuvres and asked Lauren if we could still place an order, and of course they were more than happy to help us despite the short notice. Thanks again Dale, Lauren, and the rest of your professional staff for helping to make our wedding day the best day of our lives!"

"My wife Brandy and I used Goodrich Gourmet for our recent wedding festivities. The food was excellent, the staff professional and the Owner outstanding with prices and service. I will definitely be using their services again in the near future for my upcoming book release."
"...We would definitely recommend Goodrich Gourmet for weddings and other events! This was probably the best food we've ever had at a wedding, and we can't believe that we were able to do this while still staying within our budget (which Goodrich Gourmet respected and worked with us on).

"Goodrich Gourmet catered an engagement party I threw for my sister-in-law and the food was phenomenal! It was honestly the talk of the party and even now, two weeks later, guests are still mentioning the meatballs and asking about the caterer because they want to track down the recipe for the Kicked Up Ham Biscuits! Goodrich Gourmet will be my go-to caterer for any party I throw from here on out. The food was excellent and the service was reliable - once the order was booked I didn't have to think about a thing. Goodrich Gourmet took care of it all."
