Dear Julie & Andy

It has been seven months since my daughter's wedding and I just wanted to tell you that the catering of the meal was superb! The food was delicious, the table decorations and arrangements were beautiful, and the staff was a delight to work with. Not only was everything that was promised delivered, there were extras thrown in as well that made the event even more special. I feel for everything you did for us, making sure that a thousand and one details were perfectly executed, made the value of the service you provided more than worth the expense it cost me. Your knowledge of event planning and your professional, friendly approach made the major part of the reception delightful. The best part of all, was when my daughter told me that the wedding was even better than she had hoped it would be!

Thank you for everything,
Don Henderson

To Whom It May Concern:

Please accept the following letter of recommendation for Mr. Andy Dennis and the Catering Staff from 3 C's Catering. As Special Events Coordinator at the Museum of Science and Industry, I recently had the pleasure of working with Mr. Dennis and his team on a fundraising dinner for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

Working in the event industry, I have encountered many outside catering companies and have to say that, 3 C's Catering is one of the best companies that I have worked with. Mr. Dennis and his team showed an incredible amount of professionalism and flexibility during the event. Their teamwork and willingness to assist in all aspects of the event greatly exceeded my expectations.

I can confidently recommend that Mr. Dennis and the 3 C's Catering team will provide excellent catering services for any event large or small. If I may provide you with any further information in your consideration of 3 C's Catering, please feel free to contact me.

I was thoroughly impressed by not only the taste of the food but also the prompt and polite service of the gentleman hosting our event. He was right on time, very polite, and cleaned everything thoroughly (while braving the immense heat). I would definitely recommend your services to another group looking for a caterer. Thanks again and have a great day!!


Dear 3 C's

My husband and I had our wedding in April of 2009 at the Palmetto Club at Fishhawk Ranch in Lithia.  We had no idea that 3 C's Catering even existed!! From the very beginning, Julie and Andy were great....very professional, easy to work with, and super friendly and polite. Being the crazy bride, it was great knowing I could always reach Julie with any questions or concerns. We chose to work with them and their partners for our linens and bartending as well. When the big day finally came, the place looked amazing. Everything from the way they set the guest tables and buffet tables, to the way the food and appetizer displays were, looked beautiful. The staff were all friendly and professional, including Spunky Spirits who did the bartending.

We chose the three entrees, however we picked the buffalo chicken wraps as an entree but chose to serve it as an appetizer along with the fruit and veggie platters....worked out great!! The food was delicious and fresh, and we still to this day get compliments on it, and we have some seriously picky eaters that attended the wedding too! Best part of all, the prices were extremely reasonable, which was very important to us in our wedding planning. We would very highly recommend 3 C's Catering to anyone who wants fabulous food and service for a great price.

Thanks again!

Hey Julie!

Thank you so much! The wedding was wonderful, despite a couple of snafus (did you hear about the melting roses on the cake we ordered from our Baker?). Ashley and the team were amazing; they took care of everything and went way above and beyond what they were there to do and really helped to pull the reception together. All of the guests raved about the food, and Tim and I really loved it, too.

I can't thank you all enough for everything you did; you and your staff are simply amazing. I happen to know a few couples who are getting married within the next year or so, and I will definitely pass along your information to them.

Sarah and Tim

Julie and Andy

I just wanted to say thank you for the awesome job you did catering our meeting last Monday. Not only did you make my job easier than it's ever been, but you made me look like a superstar (I was thanked by everyone at the meeting, including ownership, for choosing you guys)! The quality and presentation of everything we ordered was top notch.

Great Bay has a new caterer! Thanks Again!

Dear Mr. Dennis:

I wanted to write you today and express how extremely happy I was with your company after catering my office Christmas party. You completely exceeded my expectations and produced a fantastic product.

I have been in the hospitality industry for a long time and currently own a company that examines service and food quality so my expectations are very high. First, let me say that your help throughout the planning stages was much appreciated and when it came to setting up the party it was very nice to see you arrive on-time and that you were prepared perfectly. I was pleasantly surprised when you had your wonderful staff serve my guests throughout the evening. Any company I have ever used in the past simply drops off the food and returns later for their equipment.

The quality of your food was the highlight of the party. Even as I sit in my office two days later, the wonderful compliments keep coming in about how fantastic all of the food was.

A word that I have always taken a lot of pride in when it comes to my company is "Value." I always want to make sure that my clients feel they are getting a great product for a good price. Value does not even begin to describe the comparison of your product to the price. I found your prices extremely fair when I was booking the party and then once I experienced your incredible service and delicious food, I felt like I received the best value in the industry.

This party was to show my staff and their families how much they are truly appreciated and because of the incredible job your company did on the catering, I feel like my team really understood what I was trying to express.

Thank you,

To Whom It May Concern:

Countryside Café at Countryside Christian Center has had the pleasure of partnering with 3 C's Catering for the last year. Of the myriad of restaurants that cater our weekly Wednesday Night Dinners and our special functions, 3 C's is by far the crowd favorite. Not only is the quality of their cuisine top notch, but the service by the management and Event Coordinator is over and above expectation. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship for the catering business as well as the blessing to our congregants.

We recommend 3 C's Catering to anyone looking for affordable, quality food with service that can't be beat!

Dear 3 C's Catering

All I can say is fabulous. The food, the bar, the buffet set up, the appearance, the service, you made the event great. I am still hearing from guests at the wedding how wonderful the food was. The cake was beautiful, and good too. The bartenders were great, we have pictures of them that some of the guests took. I want to thank you and Andy for making my son's wedding reception so wonderful. It was everything we had hoped for and more. Our very special day was even greater because of the great people you are.

I want you both to know I will recommend 3 C's Catering every opportunity I get.

Thank you both so much.



To Whom It May Concern:

It is with great pleasure that I write today on behalf of 3 C's Catering. The Crossing Church is a highly active community of people with an average weekly attendance of 4,500 people. Throughout the month, the church secures the services of dozens of various vendors for all of our events, ministry functions as well as weekend services. Without question, 3 C's Catering supersedes all other vendors in every area of professionalism and execution. I recommend them to you in the highest manner possible.

When it comes to choosing a caterer for an event, The Crossing Church is looking for three things. First of all, because it matters most to those attending our events, is taste. Plenty of caterers can provide mass quantities of food inexpensively, but you usually suffer in taste drastically. 3 C's Catering has the incredible ability to provide outstanding quality food our people cheer for at a price which seems like stealing. This of course leads to the next criterion: cost. I do not ask how they do it, but 3C's regularly beats the competition on price. Finally, The Crossing cares about presentation/professionalism. Here are just some of the attributes of 3C's you will love: 1) Never late. 2) Beautiful presentation. 3) Polite and helpful servers. 4) No footprint - when 3 C's Catering leaves, your place will look beautiful. 5) Don't overlook this - food always served at right temperature.

I hope you can see why we use 3 C's Catering for multiple events every month. We will not move our business to another caterer! If you are looking for fabulous taste, extraordinary services, and unbelievable pricing, please look no further than 3 C's Catering. I recommend them to you with great confidence you will agree 3 C's Catering is beyond compare in the catering business.

To Whom It May Concern:

As founder of SunShine Baby, I would like to extend my great appreciation to 3 C's Catering for their integral part in the success of our First Annual SunShine Baby Gala. We are a future not-for-profit organization focusing on the sustentation of infant and family lives, specifically SIDS, in the Tampa Bay area.

At our first annual gala this year, held on October 13, 2007 at The Museum of Science and Industry in Tampa, I had the pleasure of working with Owner, Andy Dennis and talented Event Coordinator, Julie Dennis. Andy, a respectable gentleman, managed all menu items, food preparation, transportation and 3 C's Catering amazing staff. Julie complimented these efforts with table set-up, volunteer coordination and systematic organization throughout the entire evening. As a team, Andy and Julie's collective application created an amazing dining experience which left our guests inquiring about the caterer, complimenting the presentation and raising over $15,000 towards our cause and infant lives everywhere.

I am extremely elated to have worked with an admirable professional and ethical company. I look forward to working with 3 C's Catering in the near future and two genuine and exceedingly proficient duo.

Andy and Julie, thank you so much for your dedication to excellence.

Thank you,

Kure Walters

To Whom It May Concern:

Julie and Andy and Ashley were amazing! I have given many parties of many sizes. Also, I have used countless catering companies. The beauty of 3Cs Catering and their people is that they LISTEN. They do what you say and communication with them is timely-- which is so important. There are not a lot of frivolous phone calls which serve no purpose. They do what they say they are going to do and they do it VERY WELL. I also believe that their prices are very reasonable and in this economy that is of utmost importance.

I would use them again in a heartbeat and would do it all by email. That's how sure I am of the outcome being AWESOME! I cannot thank them enough for their services which made our party so successful!

Julie & Andy

I want to express our gratitude for your outstanding service at our wedding on December 6, 2008. From the very first meeting, your service far exceeded anything we could ask for. Your relaxed, comfortable rapport, coupled with ability to ask questions and listen made us feel comfortable from the start, and would prove invaluable on our wedding day.  You and your staff provided amazingly delicious food and extremely impressive service.  The cocktail hour was wonderful.  You listened to my ideas and expression and made them into a reality. I honestly believe that your creativity and purpose for perfection made our wedding the best event ever.

People are still talking about the reception and the delicious food.  Many of our guests called us and my parents to rave about the delicious food. You went above and beyond any expectation of any bride and made our reception and cocktail hour the most memorable ever. The food was more than mouth-watering delicious. It speaks volumes when the bride and groom actually take the time to eat at their wedding and not only eat, but wipe their plates clean.  All of our other vendors e-mailed me asking for your number so they could refer you to other brides because they were so impressed with you and your service.

Thank you for being more than a caterer, you provided much more than our dollars could ever match. Your desire to provide superior service is unmatched. Julie and Andy thank you for the life long memory.

Your clients and biggest fans,
Mr. and Mrs. Tim Freeman
