Whether you’re planning a formal event or a casual gathering, you’ll want the most delicious menu designed specifically for you and your guests and exceptional service to help you realize what you envisioned all along. Planning an event should be simple and enjoyable—almost as enjoyable as the event itself—and that is the kind of corporate catering and event planning we strive to provide for you.
We believe excellent service begins with the first contact and continues through your event. Throughout Southwest Florida, we help motivate employees, engage staff and reward businesses for achieving their goals by catering a variety of events, including holiday parties, anniversaries, annual events, VIP and guest-of-honor celebrations and so much more. We can’t wait to hear about your event; let’s start planning today!

How to Start
The most successful way to begin planning a corporate event is to form a plan. What that plan is can differ from person to person and event to event; for some, it means searching through wonderful event photos or maybe even some of our recently catered corporate events.
Once you have an idea of what you’d like your event to accomplish, we invite you to discover how we can work together to help you achieve all of those goals.
When planning a corporate event, you can start to feel overwhelmed by all the decisions, especially when selecting a caterer. We believe in full-service, customized catering and strive to provide the best of the best in every element of an event.
Custom Menus: We do not believe that one size fits all—every menu we present is created specifically for you. Each event has its own goals that must be reached in order to be considered a success, and we use those to guide the menu.
A Professional Experience: Our team is made entirely of permanent staff. We also professionally structure events with an experienced captain leading the team and serving as your main point of contact, placing your event in the hands of an expert.
Competitive Costs: We feel that a budget’s limitations shouldn’t limit the success of an event. We will work with you to get the most out of your corporate budget.
An Array of Services: In addition to amazing food and service, Tastebuds Custom Catering also provides outstanding menu design, coordinated vendor offerings (rentals, florals, etc.), entertainment partners and so much more.
Our Food: We truly take pride in our cuisine. Every menu is crafted with high-quality ingredients, organic whenever possible, and we utilize local vendors for fresher produce. It’s simple—quality ingredients create delicious, quality food.
Trendsetters: Each year, we attend at least two catering/culinary conferences to learn about upcoming trends and bring them back to Southwest Florida. Investing in our employees helps us present our clients with new and exciting concepts.
Presentation: Incredible presentation elevates delicious dishes into exceptional cuisine. Our work has even been recognized in Gulfshore Life Magazine’s “best of” issue!
You’re in Good Company
