David Graham and his staff did an amazing job of catering my daughter's wedding reception at the Grosse Ile Airport Hanger. The food was delicious, presented beautifully and served hot. The price was very reasonable. Our family has used David Graham Catering for several special events and we will continue to do so. Thanks David and Staff for making our special event such a success.

Thank you David and Crew!!

I called David to come on-site for an employee appreciation event. He was able to come on less than 48 hour notice and provided us with an incredible create-your-own omelet breakfast for 40 people. He was quick to set up, clean in his tear down and efficient (and delicious) in execution for all of us. We will have him back again! Thanks for everything!

Excellent Service & Food
We asked David to come on-site for a company BBQ. David went above and beyond to ensure everything went smoothly. All the dishes were delicious, and he even made sure to transfer leftovers in disposable trays for us to take home. I will definitely consider his services again in the future.

David was great to work with thru out the planning stage. His staff showed up on time and was very professionally dresses as a chef. He did everything which allow me the mother of bride some time to relax a bit. The food was great and we even had some leftovers which was enjoyed for a few more days. The potato salad was just like my Aunty makes and we think her's is the best for last 60 years. I have talked about this service for weeks and will continue to promote David Graham Events. We had a wonderful relaxing picnic for our rehearsal picnic for my daughters wedding.

Both my wife (Carol) and I would like to express our gratitude and appreciation for the wonderful service we received at West Shore Golf and Country Club on Saturday, May 22, 2010. Our wedding day was made even more special because of the way our reception was taken care of by your catering service. You were there for us from the planning stages right through the event day.
Just to go over why we enjoyed our day:
1. The service, you provided, including the bar staff was outstanding. They were courteous, pleasant, well-mannered, and very capable.
2. The appetizers were varied and most tasty.
3. The tables were set and placed exactly as we wanted.
4. The menu was delicious. Well prepared and plentiful.
5. You were there to attend our every need. Needless to say our heartfelt thanks goes out to yourself and West Shore for making our special day, even more special. You may use this e-mail as a reference point for future clients. You may use us as reference persons. Once again, thank you and your staff.

My wife and I were planning our wedding and defining the things that were important to us. On the top of the list was having a meal which was one people would remember. We were looking for not only good food, but someone who was exceptional at presenting the meal to our guests. We believe it is not only important to have good quality but also the appearance of how it is plated.
David Graham met all our expectations and more. The entire experience was outstanding. The appetizers were delicious and well displayed. Him and his staff ensured the layout was welcoming and arranged to create a comfortable atmosphere for all. As we progressed to dinner, everyone was served at the same time. This may not seem important, but having one table eating salad and the other starting the main course is disruptive to the evening. They kept things moving and ensured the guests had everything they needed.
We received several compliments on the quality of the meal. Many guests were surprised at how well everything tasted and the portions they received. No one left hungry or feeling they did not get the best meal they have had in a long time. We were especially pleased with our meal and amazed with the quality. The timing was perfect, not taking too long between salad, main course, and cake. The evening had a comfortable flow and allowed for conversation and mingling at friendly pace.
From our experience, it was a perfect event made possible by David Graham and his team. Not once was I worried about the success of the evening as he is very professional and assuring of his attention to details making it a memorable event. We would highly recommend using him to cater any event.

Thank you for helping to make our two events this week huge successes; the food was a big part of the positive feedback. The food was prepared on time, our employees raved about how good and fresh everything was, and your staff was very professional. All this on top of completely cleaning up after exceeded my expectations. Thanks again and we look forward to working with you in the future.

Just a note to thank you on behalf of my wife and me for the great job you did last Saturday catering my daughter’s graduation party. I received many compliments on the quality of the food during and after the event (all especially liked the pulled pork). Kris and I were very pleased with your prompt service in keeping the food freshly prepared and available during the evening.
Thanks again for helping to make my daughter’s party a success!

To Whom It May Concern,
For my daughter’s wedding reception, my wife and I used Ford Yacht Club to host this event. At the time we were making the wedding reception arrangements, we were told that David Graham Events will cater the food for the wedding reception.
Since we had not had a meal prepared by David Graham, my wife and I decided we would go to Ford Yacht Club for dinner. David Graham didn’t know the date for our dinner_ My wife, daughter, her future husband and I ordered different meals from Ford Yacht Clubs menu to get an idea of the food prepared by David Graham. All of us agreed we had made a wise choice for the wedding reception place and especially the food.
After the wedding reception meal was served, my wife and I were presently surprised by the amount of complements we received from our guests about Ford Yacht Clubs facilities and how David Graham Events had prepared and presented the hors-d oeuvres, the main meal, especially the 3 different entrées, and the attention his wait staff gave to each table served.
This wasn’t a large reception, 125 people, but to hear these complements from such a diverse group of people, means I would not hesitate recommending and using David Graham Events for any food catering party I would need in the future.
I also sent a letter to the Ford Yacht Clubs BOA thanking them for making my daughter’s wedding reception a very memorable occasion, especially their facilities and the food prepared by David Graham Events.

Dear Kirk and West Shore Board of Directors
Thank you for the enclosed Party Evaluation Form. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding our completion of the form.
We wanted to take the time to let you know how pleased we were with David Graham Events. David Graham was such a personable and helpful professional throughout the planning and execution of our Wedding Party. He was readily accessible, returned phone calls in a timely manner, and answered any and all questions we presented to him. He went above and beyond helping us with the catering aspects of the event. Our event was planned in a short period of time—David help to ease our concerns about how to plan for our party. He was always available to help and even provided information for us on a harpist who did an excellent job of providing lovely background music for our event.
On the day of the Wedding Party, David presented a delicious meal. We were pleased to receive many compliments from guests regarding the quality and generous servings of food. David even prepared a special meal for Carol that met her specific medical dietary restrictions.
We would highly recommend David Graham Events to anyone interested in catering any type of event. David brings a personal and professional approach to his business that is greatly appreciated.

THE MAGNI GROUP, INC.
Please allow me to thank you for an outstanding catering job you’ve done regarding our Magni company parties. Our Summer Picnic was a huge success due to your wonderful and tasty BBQ package. Not a speck of your good food was left. Your chef was a delight and very intuitive—I forgot to include bottled water, but your team noticed this oversight and brought many needed cases of water. Your team was cooking away, always ahead of the demand. You also happily packed up to-go meals for exiting guests of mine. Thank You. Our Dream Cruise party not only needed your great food, but YOU to help man the food display station. Our party far exceeded our count expectations and you stepped up immediately and declared that you would stay on duty with me to help feed our guests. I certainly owe you for going above and beyond my booking. I commend your hard work and dedication. I appreciate your talent with menus, displays and planning—no, make that predicting——events! Thanks again for jobs well done.
David Graham Events has been catering for our organization for the past several years. For me specifically, he caters our organization’s Board of Directors Finance Committee meeting lunches and continental breakfast for board meetings that my boss hosts for an outside organization. Not only is David Graham Events extremely reliable and reasonably priced, I consistently receive overwhelmingly positive comments on how great his food tastes as well as the quality of his food.
I highly recommend David Graham Catering.

I’d like to thank you for providing a wonderful meal for my dad’s surprise 80th birthday Sunday! Dan the chef did an excellent job. He arrived early, took care of everything and filled us all up! The food was delicious, and plenty.
This party drew lots of attention in my brother’s neighborhood and a few of his neighbor’s wanted information about you. I’ve sent along your website, so perhaps this job will lead to others. I will be happy to be contacted as a referral, if you need. If we ever need an event catered again, I’ll be sure to get in touch!
Thanks again for making this a special day.

The party was a blast and I want to thank you and Dan (I think that was his name!) I never once worried about the food while he was here. I noticed right away that he had that part covered so I spent the day enjoying all of our company. What a relief that was for me. The food was a big hit. Everyone commented on how great it was. Thanks again for your patience with my indecision and for the wonderful food and service. We will deﬁnitely call you again in the future.

To Whom This May Concern,
We were very pleased with the catering service we received this past December from David Graham Events. Chief Kimberly and crew served a delicious dinner for our staff and customers. There were several comments throughout the evening about how great the food tasted. We will definitely use them again.
September 11, 2006
Thank you so much for all of your hard work and all the extras you did for us. Everyone loved the food and asked who did it and how I found you and I gave out you name and information. I hope you get some more business from this party.
Please know that when we need those services again we will be calling.

We want to take a moment and thank you for doing such an amazing job at our November 5th- wedding. You and your staff were amazing. You were all so attentive and made us feel like the customer. The food was delicious! Even the taste test was really great!
From day one, you were always professional and willing to meet our needs. We’ve been meaning to send you feedback and just never got around to doing it. But lately, we’ve been dealing with our photographer (who we would not recommend, by the way) and this reminded us to let you know how much we appreciate the wonderful job you and your team did that night. We wish you the very best!

Dear Mr. Graham,
We have been planning events for the last 18 years and have used varies different caterers throughout the years for special associations, business events, personal events, celebrations and social gathering never have we received so many compliments on the food we served. We were not only impressed with the quality and freshness of the food but the quantity and serve were as equally amazing. You will deﬁnitely be our caterer of choice for all our future events; our only regret is we didn’t find you 18 years ago. I would also like to share a bit of a funny story that has never happened to us during any past event, several guests asked “if you have any leftover food would it be possible for us to just take a little home for tomorrow” we had so many ask that I sent my sister to her nearby home to get some Styrofoam fast food type containers, I managed to get some for myself before it all quickly disappeared. I did reheat it the next day and because of your freshness and quality it was just as moist and delicious the next day!
Thank you again for your special attention to detail and quality and we will be talking you very soon. I forgot to mention one thing and perhaps it is the most important your niche in the catering market is your Value; we really felt that the value for the money exceeded anyone else we have ever used in the past. You made our event that much more special!

Thank you so much for the wonderful job your guys did at our first annual Purchase Team picnic at Camp Dearborn last weekend.
Dan and Kevin were awesome, and very helpful. I got many compliments from co-workers about how they were extremely pleasant and accommodating they were. Not only did they do a fantastic job with the delicious food, they went out of their way to help me with hanging our banners I couldn’t hang by myself!
I would recommend your company to friends, co-workers and the rest of Quicken/Rock for future events.
Thanks again for a job well done.

I wanted to write and thank you for the wonderful catering job you did for my backyard Bar-B-Que on Sunday, July 13.
The service and setup you provided was efficient and you made it seem as if you weren’t even there. You prepared and served the food with no interruptions to the party. Many of the guests commented that the food was very good. They enjoyed all the bar-b-que selections.
I would highly recommend your services to anyone looking for a catered party. The idea of a bar-b-que with the meat cooked on-site is a good one. It added to the ambience of a backyard party.
Thank you again,

I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for your services for our company family picnic on Sunday, August 17th.
Although our picnic took place only a few days after the blackout began, you were still able to provide all the food necessary. The water restrictions didn’t hinder anything either since you had provided canned refreshments instead.
I regret that I did not get the server’s name that day. However, he was great. He cooked everything to perfection, and had a very friendly and warm personality.
This is the 3rd year we have used your company to provide for our company picnic and we have been completely satisfied every time.
We look forward to seeing the “My Granny’s Catering” truck at our future events and will continue to pass your name along to anyone who may need it.

Dear David Graham:
This is just a short letter to commend you for the exceptional services you recently displayed at our two-day conference held in Auburn Hills, MI.
You have a wide range of items on your menu that any palate would find appetizing. All conversations held between Gina Tate-Johnson and you regarding the initial arrangements were very professional. The price quote that was given for the 300 people that were in attendance was quite reasonable. And when we expressed the desire to donate any extra food to a local shelter, you offered your assistance in packing the food for travel. Your staff was courteous, helpful, and presentable. You kept communication open with Gina and myself during the event. The food display was set up in a timely manner, well in advance of the rush of people. Everything tasted excellent, and we would certainly recommend your services to other co-workers and friends for future events.
Thank you, once again, for helping us maintain the high standard that is expected from DTE ENERGY.

Just wanted to drop you a note to express my thanks for the role you played in making our Flag Day BBQ a big success! I found your company easy to work with from the pre-event planning through the tear down and clean up. You made excellent suggestions, were flexible and “had things under control”. I hardly had to do anything other than show up!
Josh and the crew were very professional. They showed up early, got things set up and were in touch with me if there were any questions.
I’ve already given your name out to another group in our building who is planning an event.
I’m sure we’ll be working together again in the future — Thanks again!

Thanks to you and your staff at My Grannys, our company wide event on June 26″ was a great success. The outside BBQ you prepared for lunch was excellent and everyone had plenty to eat. Then, you did it again for our after work get together for more food, drinks and music. My Grannys Catering came through with all of our needs.

You are a life saver! I thought I could do our company picnic on my own, but when I panicked at the last minute and called you, you stepped in and saved my sanity. Even though I called you a week before the event and you were very busy, you fit us into your schedule and provided a great lunch.
Everyone commented on how good the food was and how efficient you and your son were. Last week, one of our secretaries asked me for your name for one of her parties. I told her you had a restaurant in Redford near her home as well as the catering business.
Next year I promise I will give you more notice. Until then, best wishes for good business.

Dear David Graham,
I would like to express our appreciation for the outstanding catering service you supplied Nortel Networks. Our company’s multi tasked function was handled tastefully and timely. The crew enjoyed the boxed lunches (which required delivery to two separate locations) and the hot meals delivered to our office were beautifully arranged and pleasing to the palette.
Thank you David, it was a pleasure working with you, your assistance and wide array of delicious entrees made this multi-tasked function less stressful. We have several such functions scheduled throughout the year and would be delighted if Granny’s Catering would cover these events. I will be contacting you as soon as the dates are conﬁrmed.

To Whom lt May Concern:
Detroit Edison has requested My Granny’s Catering services on numerous occasions (both formal and informal) over the past several years. The quality and presentation of his food has been outstanding.
Mr. Graham has catered delicious, reasonably-priced meals for our entire Service Center. My Granny’s has met all of our varied catering needs. As an example, he has been called at a moment’s notice during storm situations.
Since we have a combination of both linemen and ofﬁce personnel, it’s quite a challenge to satisfy hearty appetites with exciting dishes. Mr. Graham has always risen to the challenge and has been most helpful in suggesting appetizing menus within our budget limitations.
I have not hesitated to recommend My Granny’s to both friends and business associates alike. They have also been most pleased with his meals and service.
