“I have had the pleasure of working with Garret and his team at Food Works craft catering on multiple occasions and could not be happier with the quality of their offerings and the services they provide.
The dishes are consistently top-notch and there has yet to be a time where we did not receive rave reviews about the creativity, variety, and value brought forward. I tend to leave the ‘menu’ in Garret’s hands and we have never been disappointed!
As a corporate client this is a huge benefit as it leaves us with more time to focus on the content of our presentations without having to worry about the food service. Garret and his team are professional, flexible, and come prepared with everything we need for the service to run smoothly.
Food Works craft catering has definitely become my go-to choice for our catering needs.”

We hired Garret to cater our July wedding and, like all brides and grooms, we were looking to offer the best dining experience possible to our guests. We were looking for upscale, but not pretentious and unique but not gimmicky… on a reasonable budget.
Food Works delivered! Our family and friends have not stopped raving about how much they enjoyed their food – especially the wagyu beef sliders and pulled pork tacos. It was a great feeling to make everyone so happy with their meals.
Planning the menu with Garret and his wife was a lot of fun and super easy, as they were open to all our suggestions and flexible on everything. Garret takes extreme pride in creative presentation and pays attention to every detail. His professionalism made us feel confident the whole way through and never allowed us to worry.
In fact, the menu and catering was the one aspect we felt absolutely no stress over. One of the best things I can say about him is that he was totally open to doing a tasting for us, so we could sample all of the items on our menu and make final decisions. Wish they would open up a restaurant so me and my hubby could continue to enjoy the amazing food at Food Works!
My wife and I recently were referred to Food Works by the Hall we were renting for our wedding. We had done some homework and requested quotes and prices from a number of other caterers.
From the first contact with the chef, we were seriously impressed by how easy they were to work with and how clear it was that their priority was that we have a great experience.They were not interested in drowning us with policies, or providing us with reasons why they weren’t able to make an adjustment or a change.
They went above and beyond to accommodate any new thing that came up. Additionally, we didn’t have an enormous amount money to work with, but they were accommodating and reasonable. They made suggestions and worked to get the price down to something we were able to afford.
We were so impressed after our first meeting, that when we forced by outside considerations to change the location, we made it a priority to find a new hall where we would continue to be able to work with Food Works.
We had a challenging and demanding cross-cultural guest list, and the chef took on the challenge and designed a menu from scratch that would satisfy both families and our budget. He invited us for multiple tastings to get the food just right and asked for honest feedback, and made changes to a dish accordingly.
I can’t overstate how much of a joy it was to work with them. Anyone planning a wedding knows how stressful it can be. Working with Food Works ensured for us that our food wasn’t something we had to worry about. On the day of our wedding, everything went according to plan. The chef was thorough about nailing down all the details so there wouldn’t be any problems.
The staff was amazing and the food was outstanding. Over a month later, we still have guests raving to us about how great the food was. I have no qualms about working with them in the future, or recommending them to anyone. It was a great pleasure to work with them.
Garret and the Food Works team catered our office’s annual one-day training session that was held on January 28, 2015. It was such a refreshing experience to work with someone like Garret.
He was timely in responding to my inquiry, he asked numerous questions, and made sure that the menu catered to our every need. The food itself was mouthwatering; freshly made dishes for breakfast, lunch and reception, which really enhanced our experience.
My colleagues raved about the food over the course of the day, and said these were the best catered meals that they’ve experienced.From start to finish, Garret exceeded our expectations. We’re all looking forward to working with Food Works again, whether for a professional or personal event.
I highly recommend Food Works; Garret has set the bar high and I don’t think any other vendor would be able to deliver the service that he has.
We recently had Food Works cater our staff Christmas party, and they did an AMAZING job. Everyone was raving about the food, especially the prime rib and the appetizers. All of the food was beautiful, and very artistically plated, the dessert was almost too lovely to eat.
We would definitely book them again, we were so impressed that the quality of the meat was above and beyond any expectation we could ever have. Great catering company!
I was apart of an organizing committee to raise funds for a local charity. We held our first annual event to raise funds for this charity. It was a marquee event and they had never done one before.
We knew that even if the event itself wasn’t well attended or a big hit, that people would leave talking about the food. And boy did they! The food was a big hit. Everything on the menu was amazing.
They were easy to work with, developed a theme menu after listening to what we were trying to accomplish with our event and in the end everything went well including the event! lol Kudos to Garret and his staff for such great work. I will be recommending Food Works to many people.
Food Works Craft Catering was friendly and flexible from our first meeting to the night of our event. Faced with a few ‘hiccups’ along the way, Garret handled each one professionally and calmly.
Our guests raved about the food from the presentation, the ingredients to how wildly tasty it was. The staff worked hard from the moment they began and left the place sparkling clean. Ours was not a straightforward event.
We asked a lot of Food Works to feed 60 people and work around a poetry program, stairs….and they didn’t hesitate. I was able to put my faith into this business the moment we hired them. Would highly recommend Food Works Craft Catering.
On April 23, 2017 we hosted a morning event at our Chinook Mall men’s clothing store. Garret at Food-Works Craft Catering provided guidance, and exceptional service. He was the only company out of the eleven companies contacted that asked questions about my event and worked with my needs.
The food was a great success as the Marinated Grilled Alberta Beef Flank Steak and House Made Macaroons stole the show from our clothing presentation. I will be using Food-Works Craft Catering for all of our events. My suggestion is you do the same :).
I have been using Foodworks Craft Catering for approximately 3 years and have nothing but praise for Garret and his team.
They are always willing to make recommendations, deal with special needs and come up with amazing ideas and menus. The food is always fresh, beautifully presented, tasty and delivered on time.
I would not hesitate to recommend Foodworks Craft Catering for all your business and personal needs.”
