Take a look, and see who’s talking about Anders Catering!

“Special kindnesses deserve special thank you!
Larry, just a note to express my appreciation to you and your staff for your help on Tuesday, September 16, 2003. The situation that occurred was unexpected, and you and your team really pulled together to host a VIP group of 18 including Congressman Chris Cox for breakfast and lunch with no advance notice. In addition, you were flexible with the moving and set up of an existing meeting to make room for this unexpected meeting. Most of all, I appreciated your kindness in doing so. I heard no complaints. You did your work with a smile and were most efficient. Our guests were not inconvenienced in any way and for that I owe you a debt of gratitude.

“Dear Larry, Thanks so much for your contribution to such a great day for Kelly and Rick. I had so many complements on the food and presentation. Everyone especially liked the salads! You were so kind and willing to accommodate our needs. Your tables were beautifully set, and Kelly and Rick’s table looked adorable. If we can ever give you a recommendation, we would be more than glad to do so. Again thanks for all your effort in pulling off this wonderful event, God Bless. Sincerely, Ann & Jim Owens, Lake Forest, CA ”

“Dear Larry & Jeff, Thank you for the incredible job you did catering our wedding. We are photographers and have had the opportunity to attend many weddings. As a result, we are very picky and wanted to have the best caterer available to work with us on our own wedding. We have gotten nothing but rave reviews about your food and service from the guests and family members. Your food was beautifully presented and served in a timely and efficient manner. Despite the fact that our guests had a choice of several different entrees and several different desserts, you and your staff did an amazing job of serving the right dishes to the right people! We would not hesitate to recommend Anders Catering to any of our friends and clients who are planning an important event.

Local Leadership…

At the county level, mark May 17-18 on your calendar. The Orange County Art & Jazz Festival returns to Cal State Fullerton Arboretum. Larry Anders is the festival director and he has adopted the festival as his labor of love (his real job is running Anders Catering). For two days, the Arboretum vibrates to a mixture of bebop, swing, Latin, traditional and progressive jazz, mixed with displays of the finest the local arts community can offer. It’s the kind of event that mark’s a community’s expansion beyond and between small enclaves. In many ways, such festivals represent the county’s emergence as a distinct cultural community. It deserves your support.

Larry Anders Produced large community special events at the Fullerton Arboretum CSUF, Bowers Museum of Cultural Art, Santa Ana Zoo, Santora Building of The Arts, Anaheim Pearson Park Amphitheater, Block at Orange and Irvine Spectrum Entertainment Center.

Nominated for the 1997 & 98 Orange County Business Committee for the Arts Award by Ruth Ko of Orange Coast Magazine and TV Personality Hugh Hewitt.
