This week has been super busy – here is our week in review:
Charleston Hospitality Catering was involved in VIP events for the Cooper River Bridge Run while simultaneously running a food booth for Humane Net’s recent Mega Adopt A Thon. The events went off flawlessly and a few of our employees even went home with furry new friends. Chef Eric executed three VIP breakfasts, a luncheon and three days out at the adopt-a-thon. He’s busy planning for several upcoming events in the coming weeks but is looking forward to meetings with several businesses to discuss corporate luncheons and parties. Charleston Hospitality Catering is available for any type of event and has recently gained access to several large boats to host private parties on. Call Chef Eric at 843-460-0800 if you would like to find out more information.
