I would just like to say thank you to you and your staff for the wonderful job you did at our wedding reception.  I felt you went out of your way to make it extra special for us and the added benefit of taking photo’s for our keep sake was a beautiful touch. Your team simply slipped in and out totally unobtrusive. The presentation was beautiful and your attention to detail was exceptional. I have since recommended you to the venue that we used and would be only too happy to recommend you to anyone looking to make their special event something extra ordinary. Thank you once again.

After researching possible caterers for our wedding I sent off emails to a few companies.  Within the hour Trent had called me to discuss our needs and how he would be able to help. 
From the outset the personal and professional service that Trent provided made set him apart from the other companies.  During the whole planning process Trent was always trying to work with us to make sure our ideas and budget were aligned.  The food was amazing! Taste, presentation and service were exceptional and catering to dietary requirements was no issue.
Everyone at the wedding commented on the quality of the food and the service from Trent and his team.  Thank you Trent and team – you made our wedding a success! I recommend you to anyone who asks.

The cake – absolutely amazing.  Thank you so much for the cake and for dropping it off to Lisa, it really made our life easier.

I must pass on my compliments to Natalie and Adam for the catering they did for us today.  Natalie was a true gem with helping me set up the ice buckets, balloons and even taking my clothes out of the garage for me today.  Could not be more thankful for the service and smiles they provided.  Many thanks and regards,

I'm only sorry that I didn't see you to say thank you and good bye on the night. You slipped away so quietly!

Dear Trent 
Wanted to say thank you for a wonderful event a few weeks ago. Your catering was excellent and went over well! There was so much food thou! I over catered but I rather it that way than the reverse. Your service has been excellent and I appreciate the card too.

Hi Trent
Thank you so much for your wonderful services at our function for the launch of Levanto at Harbour Quays. We were all very delighted with the high level of service that you and your staff gave us and the work of art that was your food (I almost felt guilty destroying something so beautiful!). I will be delighted to recommend your services whenever I have the opportunity to do so!

Hi Trent,
 
I haven’t had much of a chance to talk to you since our wedding, but I did want to pass on our sincere thanks for your wonderful catering throughout the day. We had many guests comment on the high quality and variety of food and the presentation.
We also appreciated the efforts of your very professional catering staff. They were always there in the background, ever alert to someone waving a hand for attention or clearing used plates. I was particularly impressed by how they came and looked after Karen and I with food, after we came back from the ceremony to the reception. We also had one special diet dish required by a guest and that was delivered seamlessly.

 From our point of view, we felt we got 110% effort and we’d recommend the progressive catering team to anyone. You put us at ease from the very start, several weeks before the event, inspecting our site and providing samples of the delicious food to be provided. We also attended a large luncheon function some months prior to our wedding so that we could observe you in action. It built our confidence that you catered for that event flawlessly too.

 So recognition where it is due; thank you once again for a superb job on our special day!

 Best wishes

Karen & Pete
Hi Trent,
Once again, we cannot fault your Chef and her wonderful cooking as well as your very professional Server.  Thank you so much for catering our daughter's 18th Birthday Formal Dinner at our canal home in Mermaid Waters last Saturday night.  As like last year, when you catered my 40th Formal Birthday Dinner at our home for 18 people, once again, your 3 course dinner was faultless.  Everything was absolutely perfect and we will definitely be calling Progressive Catering to do all the hard work for our next party! Thanks again

Hi there,
I just wanted to say what a wonderful meal we had last Tuesday night! I would have emailed earlier but we only got back to NZ last night. The chef was fantastic and Karen was just lovely - we were a bit nervous that it might be a bit uncomfortable having service staff in a home setting but it wasn't at all - they both put us all at ease as soon as they knocked on the front door! We have already decided when we come back again next year, we'll be booking you in!
Thanks again,
Anna, New Zealand
Hi Trent & Team, 
Just wanted to say a very BIG Thank You, to you all, for helping to make my 50th Birthday Party, on the weekend a great success!!!
The food was really nice, tasty & there was plenty of it, the lady serving the food, was lovely, which is always a bonus & the whole experience was fantastic.
It was a great night & as we own our own food business Two Litlle Bakers, at Mudgeeraba, I was a little apprehensive about handing the food, for this big occasion over, to someone else! I'm happy to say we were pleasantly surprised & would certainly recommend your business to others needing a caterer, for their special party or celebration.
Looking forward to seeing you again & eating your yummy food next week, for Roshin & Sian's wedding!
I've attached a photo of the cakes & desert buffet that my very talented daughter Ash did for my party & I hope the girls enjoyed the goodies that we took down stairs for them!
Please keep us in mind if you need any special birthday cakes, wedding cakes, macarons or other sweet treats!!
Thanks again

Hi Jacqui, 

I'm writing to thank Trent and his team for the outstanding catering they supplied at my husbands birthday dinner last Friday.

“Thank you, Trent, so much for working to our tight schedules & weird requests, and making it such a smooth experience. Whether it was for our Housemates, or a random celebrity guest like Bert Newton, Progressive Catering delivered beautiful food to our budget.

With a variety of differently themed dinners for our Big Brother 2013 Housemates, Progressive met our needs every time, delivering stunning food that looked amazing on screen and off. Really beautiful food, and lovely to deal with  - looking forward to working together again soon.”
