REVIEWS OF From Scratch Catering & Event Planning IN Michigan

From Scratch Catering was recommended to us by a friend- we hired them for our wedding (for about 200 guests). Prior to the wedding they were friendly, professional, and available for any of our questions. Jeff has been in the catering business for a long time and was able to help us plan for many details we wouldn't have thought of on our own. His experience definitely shines through in his work. Jeff and his team provided us with an awesome tasting, from which we chose the majority of our wedding menu. On the wedding day they were discreet but helpful to our guests. They took care of all food-related tasks, we didn't have to worry about a thing. We got so many compliments from our guests about how amazing the food was. Our wedding was outdoors and they kept the food hot for the entire dinner. The food was flavorful and exactly as we had tasted a few months prior to our wedding. We would hire this wonderful company again for any large event. So grateful for their service on our special day!

Jeff and his staff were great to work with! The food was wonderful and people were still raving about it after the wedding! Would definitely use them again! They have many choices of food and packages for every budget.

The food is Amazing. I traveled to Michigan for my niece's wedding and *Frome Scratch* catered it. Not only is the food spectacular but everyone that works there is fabulous. Cailin and Alahna did a fantastic job with cutting the roast to serving drinks. The tableware was displayed in a manner that was that of a military ball, perfect. I would highly recommend *From Scratch* to anyone looking for a catering service. If I come back to MI, they will be the only ones I call for an event. : )

The veggies & Mac and cheese was great! The pasta salad was normal, the zitti was Luke warm. If hot it would have been excellent! The place was beautiful and nice.

Taylor Linton

Excellent experience with From Scratch Catering & Event Planning! Hired them for my August 2018 wedding and they did not disappoint! The whole planning process was easy and fun with Jeff and his team. Some of my guests even said it was the best wedding food they've ever had! I HIGHLY recommend Jeff and his team for any type of catered event!

Hayley Chartier

From Scratch Catering is one of my three preferred caterers that cater within my banquet facility. They service about 95% of my weddings and are nothing less than fabulous. Jeff is a third generation caterer that is wonderful to work with, he makes the planning process fun and exciting for all of my bride and grooms. He bases his business on being “customizable” which allows my clients to have a unique experience based on their vision. From Scratch Catering also has a very professional staff that is on top of their service. I truly enjoy working with their Operations Manager Ryan and their two kitchen managers Jordan and Cailin. They contribute to the success of the overall operation and are very talented. Overall, I highly recommend this caterer for any type of function, whether it’s a wedding, corporate event or fundraiser. They will deliver a memorable experience for all.

Adam Clark

Fantastic from start to finish for our wedding. The process of menu and table linen selections, to food timing and guest counts was a breeze (even from thousands of miles away). The food was delicious too! Would use them again, in a heart beat.

Kelly Eddy

We had them cater our multi-family graduation this past weekend. From the timely arrival, to the beautiful set up, courteous staff and efficient clean up I have nothing but awesome things to say about From Scratch!! And that is not even mentioning the delicious, home made, perfect food!! All our guests just raved about the food, and we are still enjoying the left overs now. So very good, I will definitely be using them again for future parties.

Jaime McKenna

We received so many compliments on the food from our wedding. From Scratch did a phenomenal job and the food was fantastic. We also used them for the full bar service. When they didn't think they would be able to get enough of the beer we originally wanted due to seasonal availability, they called to make sure that another option to add would be okay -- and it was a hit! Jeff was extremely accommodating through the entire process and was easy to work with. We will be using them for every catering need in the future.


Jeff was so great to work with - he has fantastic ideas and is so friendly. The food was absolutely delicious (we got so many compliments)! From Scratch catered my bridal shower and our wedding reception and my husband is already planning future events to have them cater! Their wedding package seriously cannot be beat in price or value. The service from the staff at our reception was phenomenal and we did not expect to be treated like such royalty - they carried the wedding party's plates back to the table for us! It was fantastic! My only suggestion would be to have an office manager. From Scratch is so deservedly popular that I know Jeff has his hands full, but we missed out having a tasting because we hadn't liked them on Facebook. An office manager would be able to follow up with interested parties directly.

Jack Williams

Ran out of food before they were d9ne serving everyone all that was left was potatoes and salads very little chicken which was not that great

Stephanie Freeman

The food was fantastic! I would definitely recommend the pulled pork and the cherry bbq chicken. The staff was very professional, set up and clean up were done quickly and quietly. I would definitely use you again!

Sarah Jean

Jeff was amazing to work with. Easy to get in touch with and took detailed notes. Food was fresh, hot, and delicious! So many of our guests said it was the best wedding food!

Tina Mallory

I originally grew up in Michigan but have lived out of state for the past 6 years. When my husband and I decided to have our wedding in Michigan, to better accommodate our families, I knew that planning everything was going to be a challenge since I would have no taste testings, no face-to-face meetings, and limited communication with the vendor I would book with. I had never heard of any of the companies I began to search, and all of them had the same type of short reviews. While great reviews help, "Excellent", "Very good food", and "Great place to cater from", cannot give you an honest sense of security and trust from a company. From Scratch Catering was the first company I called, and they were so informative that I booked them immediately and never looked elsewhere. They answered every question, no matter how many e-mails I sent, and provided detail after detail of what to expect from them. Their menu was vast and their selections covered the entire spectrum of simple to elegant. I told them the direction and feel that I wished to accomplish from my reception and let them guide my choices to achieve that; it couldn't have turned out more perfect. People still rave about the stuffed chicken, the assorted cucumber hors d oeuvres were devoured, and our only regret was that we couldn't try every item on their menu; it was THAT good! However; as good as their food was, it was their service which they provided on the most important day of my life that really shone through. I am quite convinced that any catering company could provide good food, but I doubt that any other choice on our part would have provided From Scratch's amount of class and professionalism during the event. Everything was beautifully laid out, and the staff ensured the proper flow and assistance with every. single. guest. There is not enough room in this review to be able to express how highly I regard From Scratch Catering. Simply put, you will NOT find a better catering company.

We chose From Scratch Catering because it was on a preferred vendor list. It was a great recommendation. Many guests went out of their way to compliment the food quality and service! Jeff was easy to communicate with and took great care of us.

Sarah Yockey

Our family has used Jeff for several events as well as attended events hosted by others who have used him (wedding, baby shower, funeral luncheon, sports banquet, holiday dinner). Always top notch. I highly recommend for amazing food, excellent service, and great value.

Deb Knight

Hired these guys for a reception, the food was very good. The problem I had was some of the food was room temperature and one item was cold.

Erin Smith

Our group hosted a meeting at their location in Saginaw. Everyone commented on how amazing the food was! The staff made it very easy to plan the event and the menu selections were great. Better yet - the price made their services an excellent value!

Hollie Gavord

So glad we chose From Scratch Catering for our wedding! Very professional company, offering delicious food! We recieved so many compliments on dinner, our guest loved it.

Emily Ulewicz

From Scratch catered my husband and I's wedding this past weekend. As we went around to thank our guest, everyone raved about how good the food was. People also raved about how good the drinks were. Jeff helped A LOT through the planning process and gave me very helpful opinions. He was very easy to get ahold of for any questions. We could not have asked for a better caterer. When they arrived, they knew what to do, and didn't have to ask any questions. It was one less thing to worry about during all the festivities! Thank you!

From Scratch catered a staff appreciation lunch for Swan Valley Middle School this week. It was delicious and very well-presented. It reminded me of my grandmother's home cooking!

Robin Kaye Carey

Food is delicious, service is wonderful, and Jeff is a breeze to work with. I'm part of an event committee, and we used From Scratch for our event this year - HUGE hit with event goers! People were lining up for extra helpings and could not stop complementing the food! The staff were great - easy and efficient set-up and tear-down. They were very professional, and able to accommodate necessary changes that happen at events. I highly recommend, and will book them when I need catering in the future!

We hired From Scratch to cater for our rural outdoor wedding. We lived 8 hours from our caterer and wedding venue but reading the reviews and seeing the pictures, I knew they would not disappoint. Our parents did the taste testing and confirmed that the food was delicious. Jeff contacted us several times to confirm the details of our menu and was always very patient and accommodating. They arrived on time and had very friendly staff. Everyone at our wedding said how great the food was. I felt it was the best meal Ive had at a wedding, ever! Would absolutely recommend this company for any catered event!

Toni Davis-Harrison

From Scratch catered my daughter's graduation party yesterday. From the beginning, it was a very pleasant experience. They helped with the menu - offering advice from their experiences. The chefs grilled chicken and burgers in the yard...very easy and attentive fellows. Had tons of compliments on the food. My new "go to" caterer!

Yonetta Kendall

Family enjoyed the food. Great staff!

Ashley Ferguson

From Scratch did a great job with our wedding the food was a big hit and I was able to order our table cloths right through them at a great rate. Jeff was so easy to talk to and was very responsive. I highly recommend them!

Gloria Gosling

Awesome hospitality-!

Jane Palmer

We worked with Jeff for our small backyard wedding and we ordered their picnic menu plus their pesto chicken with basil cream sauce. Everything was great! Especially the brats! Almost everyone said they were the best they'd ever had! Jeff was very responsive, they provided everything we needed and Jeff set everything up for us. Great to work with, great food, and generous portions. Loved everything!
