There is a lot to juggle when it comes to production catering. On top of looking for delicious food from quality restaurants, we know you have a tight schedule to keep — punctual deliveries need to be fit into your precisely planned yet hectic schedule, and delays lead to overtime costs that your tight budget doesn’t account for. Furthermore, we know your plans are always in flux with unpredictable call times, last minute guest add-in and drop-outs, and potentially even location changes. You’ll need delicious food options where the restaurant is not only extremely flexible but also on-time. Pair all of the logistical nightmare with a team full of special dietary requests and unique food preferences, and you have quite a bit on your plate!

Essential Features for Your Production Catering

Last Minute Options and Flexible Changes

Many of our options are available for you to order the day before, and some are even available day-of. On top of that, our customer service team (or your account manager) is ready to assist you with any last minute changes in timing, location, and headcount.

Punctual Deliveries from Vetted Restaurants with Production Catering Experience

We vet our restaurants strenuously and only work with the ones with professional service and punctual deliveries. We know you have a strict schedule to keep, and we will make sure your crew is well fed and happy.

Individual Ordering

No hassle for the meal coordinator with everyone's individual dietary needs! If your crew wants to individually select meals, you can start a group order where meals will come delivered with each person's name written on it.

Optional Account Manager

If you have a long production schedule ahead of you and would like an account manager, we’d be happy to provide one. Let us take care of the hassle of menu selection and ordering for a variety of dietary needs.

FAQ's

Will you be providing a tent setup or attendants for our catering?

Unless specifically requested, all of our catering are deliveries that are dropped off. Please contact us at support@catercow.com if you need a tent setup as well as attendants.

Do you provide craft services?

We specialize in delivering quality prepared meals from restaurants. While we can certainly provide snacks, we believe it's more cost effective to go to Costco or your local grocery store to purchase these in bulk instead of purchasing them from a restaurant.

Our call time is 4am - can you do that?

Yes! We can provide catering at all hours of the day :) Hours during late night and wee hours of the morning might require some more heads up, but either way no problem!

Our shoots are all over the city, and some of the locations are outside of your typical delivery zones - can you still accommodate?

Yes! If you have a few shoots that are further out of the typical city boundaries, no sweat, we can still make the deliveries happen! Just reach out to us at support@catercow.com and we'll make it work!

What enhanced COVID-safety protocols do you have?

When it comes to ordering food, you want to know that the meal is being prepared under strict health and safety guidelines. While the CDC says that the risk of contracting COVID-19 from food or its packaging is very low and that there have been no confirmed cases via food preparation, our goal is to go beyond that and partner with restaurants who are hyper focused on their customers and employees’ health and safety. Our restaurants sanitize their kitchens prior to opening, throughout the day, and again at closing of each day. Staff always wear masks and gloves throughout their shifts and conduct temperature and symptom checks before work, during their shifts, as well as before leaving each day.

Below are a list of procedures we stress upon our kitchens:

- Do not allow sick employees to work

- Do not allow any employee to work who has come back from an identified high-risk zone in the past 14 days

- Wash your hands with soap and warm water regularly, for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing

- Take extra precaution around food handling including changing of personal protective equipment such as food handling gloves

- Please exercise proper sneezing protocol: when coughing and sneezing, cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue; throw tissue away immediately and wash hands

- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth

- Avoid close contact with anyone who has a fever or cough

- Above all, please exercise elevated cleanliness and carefulness measures

How are you different from other food ordering services?

Two main pillars where we stand out!

  1. Vetting and Quality standards: when you browse www.CaterCow.com/search you'll see photos of every menu we offer - these aren't fancy staged plated photos, but actual photos of the delivery. We vet all caterers - to join the website, caterers must apply and complete a test order with on-time delivery, good professional service, and good quality food. We remove caterers who are suffering quality standards.

  2. Simplicity: you'll find that ordering from us is quick, intuitive, and easy! Try it out! Instead of ordering based on a laundry list menu (full tray of steak, half tray of chicken, pint of guacamole) we ask for your headcount and make sure you have enough food for your team!

What is CaterCow?
