We Grill on Site!

One of the reasons CK Catering has become the leading catering business in Southwest Michigan during the last 12 years, is that we grill your food on site! This is a fairly unique gift that we are able to offer you. Not many catering companies will grill your food seconds before you eat it. Our mouth-watering food will be delivered, still steaming and delicious. We are able to do this because we have several grills; enough for each of our many elegant venues that we service in one night.

Many other catering companies do not have the provisions necessary to grill on site. They will cook all of your food in the kitchen and then bring it to your wedding. In this case, the food cannot taste as fresh as it does when it goes directly from the hot grill to your plate.

Other catering companies may have one or two grills, but in this case, they will have to pick and choose which weddings receive the fresh food. Or, these companies may even charge extra fees for the grills or chefs. At CK, this doesn’t happen. Our grills and experienced chefs are included in every wedding package. We make sure that every bride and groom is our first priority. Each couple is special to us and we will do anything we can to make your night perfect.

We know that dinner is an insanely important part of your wedding! Because of this, we guarantee that we will grill on site for your wedding. Your night will be filled with wondrous aromas that you can enjoy all night! You don’t have to worry whether or not your food will be fresh or hot. It will be. That’s a promise!

Why Attend a Group Tasting

Before you choose CK as your wedding caterer, you will probably want to experience CK in action. And, of course, you’ll want to taste the food; because that’s what it’s really all about.

The best way to help you decide whether CK is really right for you is to attend a Group Tasting. Group tastings are fabulous tools. At a tasting, you will be able to sample over 35 of our delicious food options; including entrees, sides, appetizers, desserts, salads, late night snacks, and more. With your menu in hand, you will get to do a side-by-side comparison of all your favorite foods. This is priceless because it will help you narrow down exactly what you want for your wedding.  If you schedule a personal tasting instead, while it is a good option, you will only be able to select up to 4 different food options. At a group tasting, you can try them all!

Along with sampling our delectable meal choices, you will also get to meet our staff in action. Most, if not all, of our experienced captains will be there, as well as many of our excellent wait staff. They will all be there to serve you and help you experience CK. You will even meet one of the co-owners, Bob, and our event planner and sales assistant Melissa. All of your many questions can be answered by these catering veterans.

Of course, although the food is a very important part of your big night, we know it is not the only important part. That is why we invite many different vendors to our group tastings. Not only will you get to try the food, but you will also meet many photographers, DJs, bakers, florists, event planners, lighting specialists, bartenders, and venue hosts. All of these vendors will partner with us, ensuring that your wedding will run smoothly and beautifully.

And last, but not least, you will get to sample our linens. When you choose CK Catering, the table and napkin linens will be included in most wedding packages. Here, you can see different colors and styles of napkin folds. Choosing the right linen color will make a great impact on your wedding, and we will make sure to help you pick what is right for you.

Because of all these reasons, we highly suggest that every couple register for one of CK Catering’s fabulous group tastings.
