We offer catering services for small groups/parties, corporate events, pop-up shops and food festivals/fairs. Orders can be made by phone or online. We can deliver food as well as provide a pick up option. At this time, our catering service only provides food, we do not assist in serving, re-heating or decorating events.
Why We Exist
There has been a 600% increase in people identifying as vegans in the U.S in the last three years. According to a report by research firm GlobalData, only 1% of U.S. consumers claimed to be vegan in 2014. And in 2017, that number rose to 6% and is still climbing. Despite the rapid growth in veganism, the food industry still lacks in providing substantial vegan food options in forms of corporate catering and 100% vegan food sources-- especially in the Greater Cleveland area.
There was a time when vegans were almost ostracized and considered members of some far-strung cult—weird and radical. But not today. The number of individuals identifying as vegan is rapidly growing. Today, ‘meat-free’ and ‘ethical’ populations are becoming more than just a trend- there is a global dietary shift away from animal products. For companies serving any catering to their staff or party host catering to their guests, providing vegan dishes is now a must-have option!
