I used busy bee for my Fourth of July wedding. My theme was old fashion picnic and I wanted my food to match. Busy bee was the first place I contacted. Jan was very enthusiastic about my idea and had some great ideas on how to incorporate our picnic theme. I had talked to a few other places just to make sure but I just felt Jan really understood what I was looking for. The first time me and my fiancé met with her we realized we had no idea what we wanted. We could see what Jan was extremely experienced and knew what she would doing which made us feel sooo much better. She took our suggestions, made a few of her own and worked within our budget. She kept it touch all the way up to the wedding and always offered up her wedding knowledge when I asked for help. When our wedding finally came her and her team ROCKED it! I mean seriously knocked it out of the park! Our wedding day was Hot hot hot but that didn't stop her team from working hard and making everything look great! We had pulled pork sandwiches, and chicken skewers along with some amazing side salads and spicy coslaw! We actually got to eat unlike most newlyweds and it was so good! I cannot tell you how many people told us how much they LOVED the food! These guys really went the extra mile for me and I greatly appreciate Jan and her team!

Busy Bee Catering did an amazing job for my Summer Solstice Wedding! Not only were they extremely responsive, but very helpful in offering their opinions due to their experiences of catering weddings. Everything we added on last minute was taken care of and I am so very thankful for their wonderful company. The guests commented on how good to the food was!! There was also a lot leftover which was great as we had wanted enough to ensure that people could go back again and again as it was a buffet. I would recommend Busy Bee Catering to anyone in need of caterers but definitely for a wedding as despite the day seemingly very stressful overall this was something that was taken care of so smoothly it was a huge relief! VERY delicious too!! Thank you so much.

I was quite pleased with Busy Bee Catering! We hired them for a school 40th anniversary and auction dinner event at the last minute. Jan was a delight to work with. The food was delicious with a beautiful presentation. We did a buffet this year and it worked out great. Jan and her staff were prompt and efficient. We will definitely be calling on them again for future events!

Jan has been supplying the sack lunches for our Mt Hood Ski Racing League for at least 7 years. Our race course volunteers work hard to keep the High School race functions on schedule no matter the weather and Jan's lunches keep our crews working hard.
Sandwiches made with Jan's homemade thick sliced bread, your groups choice of meats (we choose turkey) with cheese and lettuce. Fresh fruit. And her home made desserts such as bar cookies. And if you're looking for a very special dessert Jan can put together the best Oatmeal Cookies on Mt. Hood.

Busy Bee Catering provides a great service for conference group meetings as well. With less than two weeks notice, Jan was very responsive and accommodating for my request to provide appetizers for a group of 50 travel professionals. They were willing to set up, serve, and clean up for this fast pace group when our schedule did not allow us time to linger and enjoy. Their display was simple as I requested, yet very professional and appropriate for the event. The appetizer skewers were beautifully presented and most important, tasty! Busy Bee Catering can be trusted and reliable for any size group, and will work with you to fit your needs and budget. Thanks

Jan and her crew at Busy Bee made our Business Excellence Awards Luncheon easy and elegent, even with our very tight budget. I have organized many events and have high standards for service and flexibility. Jan obviously holds those same high standards. Jan was very responsive and creative when it came to menu planning. The food was a great value and the presentation was elegant. The Christmas cookie table was fabulous! Can't wait to work with Jan and her team in the future. We will certainly refer our members to Busy Bee Catering for their event needs. Thank you, Jan!

Busy Bee Catering has catered several events for me over the past 15 years while I have worked at different non profits: community meetings, town halls, and for the past two years our annual volunteer recognition banquet. The food is mouth-watering and you can taste the freshness of the food, decorations always match the theme, and the caterers are responsive to special needs. After catering the volunteer banquet in 2013, our staff and guests asked me to please bring back the same caterer for 2014 with the same menu. Who can say no to happy guests?

Jan and the Busy Bee Catering staff provided her services at a reception for a ribbon cutting event for our new Rivermark Community Credit Union Gresham branch. Jan was personable, easy to work with and affordable. She came up with a very thoughtful menu for our guests and even put us in touch with a baker and an event coordinator to assist us with other event details. The spread was delicious and we received many compliments from guests! I would hire Busy Bee Catering again in a heartbeat for future Rivermark events!
