Special Events

Are you responsible for organizing the launch of the new model, the annual open house, the company-wide Christmas party or the gala charity event? Or maybe it is a 50th wedding anniversary, significant birthday or some other special occasion?

You can rest assured that Select Service is there to help. As full service caterers we have organized many events in the area, working with individuals and committees. Your first call to us sets the wheels in motion. We will meet with you to get a feel for your goals and then work together with you to design the best method of achieving those goals. Through our numerous contacts in the event industry, we can organize, or help you to organize all the necessary elements of your event. Bring us your ideas and we will fashion them into reality.

All of our food is prepared from fresh ingredients. If you have dietary concerns or requirements we will happily adapt our recipes as much as possible to accommodate your needs or suggest alternatives. You can be assured that only the best quality ingredients are acceptable at Select and that they are safely and knowledgably handled to produce an outstanding menu for your event.

Are you looking for something a little different? We can introduce you to some insider points on fine dining Select style. Give some thought to a wine tasting commentated by Marcus or a cooking class either demonstration or hands on in your own home with Kelvin. Group too large? Let us help you find the perfect location. We are the ‘off-site' specialists who bring fine dining to you, wherever you choose to be.
