I work for a company that is licensing the Progresso name and launching a new line of products. To help build product awareness, we hosted Back to School Lunch Events for teacher conferences and PTA boards across the country. I had the great pleasure of working with Maryellen for two of these events in St. Louis - the first event had ~50 attendees and the second had ~85 attendees. Our situation was more challenging than typical events because we were using our frozen pastas and sauces which required Maryellen to redeem coupons at Dierbergs grocery store in exchange for boxes upon boxes of these products. For both events - she had to go to multiple stores to pick up enough of these items - not an easy task with an already busy schedule.
In addition, Maryellen did a phenomenal job of staying in contact via phone and email (being that I am in a different state) and always providing timely responses to my questions. Lastly - the staff arrived/set up in a timely manner at both events, the food presentation was AMAZING and the costs were incredibly reasonable. The event attendees raved about the food, presentation and staff. All around it was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend working with Maryellen and the Catering by Georgianna staff.
