Drop Off Catering

Planning the perfect picnic takes a lot of work. It takes time and effort to select the location, create decorations, choosing the menu — and transporting everything on the day of the event. All these chores can take away from the fun and create stress. Not to worry: Corky’s Catering can provide drop-off catering, entertainment, and a crew to set up your venue, so you can enjoy your fun-filled day. Our professional picnic planners can help you as little or as much as you like depending on your budget. Let us do the work so you can focus on your family, friends, and coworkers while enjoying food, entertainment, and games.
