Susan's Catering - Nashville, TN

We're Interviewing: Susan, the Owner

About Susan's Catering

I have been in business since 1991 and previously worked in the hospitality industry in restaurant and catering work. I am a small business, female owned, boutique caterer. My catering service area covers the Greater Nashville, Brentwood and Franklin area. I am involved with all details and communications from the initial email, text or phone consultation through menu planning, site visits, vendor meetings, meal preparation to the final clean up! I have access to the best back of the house and front of the house staffing as well. Weddings and wedding events are my favorite catering opportunities.


What Catering Services Do You Offer?

I am full service and offer catering for all types of events which include buffets, plated dinners, cocktail buffet parties and other special events.


What Areas do You Cater to?

I offer catering in the Greater Nashville, Brentwood and Franklin areas.


What Types of Foods Do You Offer?

I describe my specialty as upscale Southern, although I can offer other cuisines such as Italian, Mexican, Mediterranean and small bites.


What are some Popular Wedding Catering Options you see with your Clients?

All events menus are individually crafted towards the clients desires and the venue parameters. Some of the client favorites are grilled chicken with artichokes in a buttermilk parmesan cream sauce, roasted beef brisket, pork tenderloin in a praline sauce with date, apricot cilantro relish. Lots of yummy sides and salads. I like to create menus based on the freshest possible produce available according to the season.


How Many Guests Can You Cater? Is There a Minimum?

I have a 40 person minimum and can accommodate large crowds.


Susan, Can You Show Us Some Photos?

Where Do You Make the Food?

My catering kitchen is a second kitchen at my home which is health department inspected and we adhere to all industry standards, including all necessary licenses and insurance.


Can you Accept Any Special Requests? I can offer options for gluten free, vegetarian and vegan.

Where Can I Check Out Sample Menus? There are some sample menus on my website although I create all menus based on the clients desires and needs.


Why would a couple choose you as their caterer?

My attention to detail, understanding the client's vision from beginning to end, love of paperwork and schedules and willingness of me and my staff to go above and beyond the call of duty. My goal after being hired is to create a sense of competence and calm which allows the bride and groom and family to have the utmost confidence in me.


What Can I Expect at a Consultation/Tasting?

I charge $100 for a tasting which includes many items from the menu. I do make changes according to when the tasting takes place - for instance if I have quoted a summer menu and the tasting is in the previous fall your tasting menu will reflect the season. If hired after the tasting process, the $100 fee is credited to the final bill.

Beyond Details- Nashville, TN

We're Interviewing: Brandy Dyer - Owner

About Beyond Details

We are a small boutique style catering company curating menus for all styles of events. Our motivation is our client, each being different and unique. Our “outside of the box” thinking and design is what makes each event spectacular. Our goal is to personalize each event to reflect your style, personality and taste buds!

What Catering Services Do You Offer?

We can service any type of event and style based on the client's vision. This varies between weddings, corporate parties, baby showers, engagement parties and brunches to name a few. We handle it all! For each event, we get creative with the menu and will service any style of menu: plated dinner, family style, buffet, cocktail style, etc. Again, it's really based on the client's vision. We will work on them with logistics to make it happen!

What Areas do You Cater to?

We cater around Nashville and all surrounding suburbs up to a 50 mile radius.

What Types of Foods Do You Offer?

We offer all types of menus. Each one being different and unique to meet the client's needs and culture of their event.

What are some Popular Wedding Catering Options you see with your Clients?

One of our top items is the beef tenderloin which is cooked at medium temperature with our house-made chimichurri sauce. This item is the most popular for clients who prefer a buffet style meal with a choice of two entrees. It is typically paired alongside one of our chicken dishes. For plated meals, we often serve our filet which is marinated in a garlic herb butter. This is one of our specialty items and receives many compliments. Both of these beef options pair well with our garlic whipped potatoes and sauteed mixed vegetables. Not to mention, our medley is served with seven different vegetables offering a great variety for each guest.

How Many Guests Can You Cater? Is There a Minimum?

We do not have a maximum/minimum number of guests but our minimum price for a staffed event is $2500.

Where Do You Make the Food?

We have a commercial kitchen in Berry Hill.

Can You Accept Any Special Requests?

Yes! We can accommodate any dietary restrictions: gluten free, dairy free, different allergies, vegan and vegetarian to name a few.

Where Can I Check Out Sample Menus?

There is a link on our website: https://beyonddetailscatering.com/custom-event-wedding-menus/

Why would a couple choose you as their caterer?

I think the #1 thing that makes us unique in Tennessee is that we are a boutique style company. This gives us the opportunity to have a more personal relationship with each client. We work with them one-on-one to create a customizable menu specifically for them as opposed to them selecting from set menus. We can also offer floral design with our services making us more involved with the aesthetic of each event. We are motivated by our clients needs with the main goal to exceed expectations. You will often find our directors diving into other aspects of the event as well - referring vendors, helping with design, reviewing rental orders and confirming timelines. Anything to ensure that each event runs smoothly and everyone has an amazing experience.

What Can I Expect at a Consultation/Tasting?

Before the tasting, each client will have an initial consult via phone or email so our team can get an idea on the client's vision and budget. From there, Beyond Details will curate a menu based on those specific requirements. At the tasting, the client will taste the items selected and our team will review any adjustments that need to be made to the menu. During this time we will also talk with the client about service, setup, payments and any additional questions they may have.
