Testimonials

Just read what our catering clients have to say about us. Our catering reviews tell why we’re the best caterer for you.

“Dear Laurie and Sporty’s Catering Crew,
I wanted to send a BIG THANK YOU for the catering you provided last Saturday for my husband’s 70th birthday party in Carol Stream. I had never ordered from you before, but the reviews and testimonials I found online gave me some confidence. And, I would like to be one of those testimonials! I ordered ala carte: 4 main dishes, 2 pastas, 2 hot side dishes, 3 salads and 2 desserts. When I spoke with you, Laurie, you took your time with me and gave me some great catering advice for the number of people attending. Everything from the initial phone contact with Laurie to the confirmations, the delivery driver and the food was to say at the least, SPECTACULAR! Wow! was a common compliment from our guests. Or, “Where did you order all of this from?” There wasn’t one dish that wasn’t great! I was blown away by it and so were our guests and the birthday boy! Thanks for everything! In an age, when complaints are the norm, I wanted you to know you are doing a fabulous job and I appreciate your customer service and quality! Your business will be highly recommended! Thanks again!”

Just wanted to thank you for giving us the wonderful catering services you provide for our employees. Each time my assistant, Erika or myself call in an order, Helen has always been so kind, sweet, efficient and just plain wonderful. You are lucky to have her.
I also appreciate the timely manner in which I receive your invoices and statements. It is truly appreciated and makes “paperwork” on my end go smoother.
Thank you again and I look forward to continuing to work with you and your staff.

Sincerely,
Concierge

“Hello Laurie,
I just wanted to send a quick note thanking you for my recent order. it was on short notice, but in spite of that, I had no issues at all. Everything I ordered came on time and exceeded my expectations! I had a lot of compliments on the food being delicious. It was reasonably priced and worked out perfectly for my party. I would definitely recommend Sporty’s to anyone. I ordered only a few days before my party, since my party unexpectedly got bigger than I originally anticipated and thus beyond what I could accommodate on my own. I called P*****, and not only did they have less options, more limitations on delivery, and were more expensive, they pretty much laughed at me because of the short notice I gave them. You guys more than came through for me and handled everything perfectly! Thanks so much!”

“Thank you for your continuous good service, great prices, discounts, wonderful staff, and lets not forget the great tasting food!”

“I want to share that your food has gotten RAVE reviews. People are very happy and grateful for such excellent variety and quality. I wanted you to know that I spread the word Sporty’s was responsible for the “delicious” lunches.”

“Thank you again! I welcome the opportunity to use Sporty’s again. Please have a great day!!”

“The suggestion of Sporty’s was fantastic!!!! So many compliments and a lot of “This is way better than last year’s lunch!”. I will definitely go through them again.”

“Just wanted to thank you for the great food and staff you provided for my daughters wedding at Sonny Acres on August 15th. Everyone complimented on how good the food was!

The staff you provided were excellent too! I was able to fully enjoy myself because I didn’t have to worry about the food service!

I will highly recommend you to other people. Again, thank you so very much.”

“I cannot tell you how often we hear from guests that attended our wedding about how absolutely marvelous the food was! We loved it ourselves and were so pleased our guests loved it too!”

“Thank you again! The delivery was on time (actually a little early), the delivery man was helpful and polite and professional, and the food was terrific!!! Many parents asked, “Who did your catering?” “Who made the chicken?” When I told them, “Sporty’s” , they then asked, “Where are they located?” “Are they reasonably priced?”

I’m just telling you because–well, I can’t remember when I’ve had so many people compliment me on the food. I would not be surprised if many of these parents contact you for catering their kid’s graduation!
Great Job! Thanks for making me look good!”

“Just want to let you know the Fajita luncheon was wonderful!!!! The steak/chicken was so tender and delicious. We absolutely loved it……..you made me think outside the box instead of getting the usual great chicken fingers, red potatoes and caesar salad (which we love!!!) But this truly exceeded as one of our best luncheons!!!! Thanks so much!!!!!”

“I just wanted to thank you and everyone at Sporty’s for the AWESOME food that you catered for my daughter and son-in-law’s baby shower on Monday, May 25th. You were great in coordinating everything I asked for. Everyone commented on how good the food was and many asked for the name of the catering service. I was EXTREMELY pleased and recommended Sporty’s to all.”

“Thank you for making a special day the best!”
Cheryl F.

“Dear Sporty’s, Thank You so much for everything you did. The food was wonderful and there was plenty of it! It was a difficult task planning a funeral luncheon. With your help and guidance, the luncheon was a wonderful tribute. You staff was pleasant and efficient.”

“To the staff of Sporty’s Catering, I wanted to thank all of you for the excellent food we had Saturday at my Daughters Graduation Party. It was my first time using Sporty’s and I was impressed with the food and service provided. The delivery time was as advised, the 2 young men that delivered where so helpful and did a great job setting up.”

“The food was out of this world. Everyone inquired about where it came from and I was happy to give them your name. I should have ordered more of that Sporty’s Famous Chicken as there was not a piece left to be found! We will definitely recommend and use your services in the future. Thanks”
Mary P.

“We recently had Sporty’s cater my son’s high school graduation party. I asked if they would grill for over 100 guests in my back yard. To my pleasant surprise they did. They brought their equipment, not to mention an ice cream cart, and did a great job. We can honestly say that our experience with Sporty’s Catering was excellent!!! Their food, service, and willingness to accommodate my wishes, exceeded all my expectations.
GREAT JOB AND THANK YOU TO SPORTYS AND CREW!”

“We are still a very happy married couple even after throwing the largest personal event we ever hosted, our 50th anniversary. A lot of that is because of the excellent staff and food you all have provided. Rob and Kevin did an excellent job of preparing and displaying the dishes. We found them both to be very accommodating and helpful. It was indeed a pleasure to work with them. Several of our (76) guests commented on different aspects of the evening meal, anything from specific foods being excellent in flavor and temperature to how nicely it appeared and was arranged. A couple of individuals did go and let Rob know just how good they felt the preparation was. Not to be forgotten was our dealings with your sales staff, Helen and probably yourself Laura. You all went out of your way to make our evening meal something that was special and unique. It was greatly appreciated. Many, Many thanks for all of your hard excellent work. We hope to see you again, if not before, on our 75th.”
