There's a new trend in gourmet eating today and that is to have it delivered directly to you. Some of the impetus that has spurred this on is the online food delivery industry. Companies now offer high-quality gourmet at much lower prices than traditional restaurants and they deliver the food directly to people in their homes rather than having to go out and get it in a pricey restaurant. Not only is this a great idea for small orders but also for very large occasions like corporate events, fund-raisers, and weddings. We have taken the online delivery model and brought it to you locally in the Merritt Island, Melbourne, and surrounding areas. You don't have to pay the exorbitant prices of traditional gourmet restaurants and yet you still get the high-quality food and delivery service you have come to expect from quality gourmet restaurants. Important events have a big impact and people remember how they were carried out. We understand the importance of your events and we strive to leave a lasting impression on the guests. A big part of this impression is due to the food, including the excellent food quality, as well as the quality of service in our delivery and presentation. We spend extra time working on our presentation at these events so the result is customer satisfaction. We want your event to be something people will continue to talk about and share long after it is over.
