Welcome to Chef Mario's Personal Chef Services!
New Website Coming Soon!
We are getting closer to having our new Website ready to go!! That is SO exciting for me!! Our new website will allow our amazing customers to order like they usually do, but it will also be set up to take payments on-line! That will make things easier for you and us! With the new website and new ordering system, we will be able to add on to our menu so you have even more amazing choices! That is so exciting to us! (Insert Happy Dance Here)
In a couple of weeks I will be reaching out to some of you to help me with a 'soft launch' of our ordering system to help me work through any kinks. After that, we will go live for everyone!
Our new website will remain very similar to our current website, but will roll in a few new features and sections. As part of the new website, I will be rolling out a new Blog section where I can share some fun information about what we do, why we do it, and link you up with Holly's Biscuit Kitchen for some great recipes, fun in the kitchen, and ingredient discussions!
We are so grateful for your support and business! We are working ever so hard to keep our doors open and our kitchen buzzing! Chef and out kitchen staff are continuously working to make each week tasty and wholesome, as well as beautiful. After all, you eat with your eyes before you ever get a bite in your mouth! We want it to look as good as it tastes!
I am so glad you have found us and are giving us a try! Please remember that I am just an e-mail away if you have any questions!!
'Remember, it always tastes better when someone else cooks!'
Finding the New Normal with Covid-19
The world of Catering is in a bit of an upheaval right now and we are rolling with the punches here at Chef Mario's. We do understand that many of the extreme measures we are taking now are temporary, but we take them seriously because we care about the Health and Well Being of our Staff and Clients.
What exactly does that mean?
Well, to us it means we respect the increased safety and sanitation measures that are required at this time and look for ways to keep doing what we do best, which is making delicious food for our clients.
We are having to adjust our staffing, scheduling, delivery options, set-ups, pricing, and pretty much everything! Please read below to see how our main business lines will be changing temporarily.
Temporary Adjustments to Business Operations
Personal Chef Delivery Service
Our Personal Chef service has become our mainstay now that the Corporate Catering and Private Catering Opportunities have shifted and no longer offer many opportunities for us. Personal Chef is where Chef Mario got his start so many years ago and something he has done as part of his business ever since! So, it was an easy transition!
We started an on-line ordering platform available on our Website (see above) that gives clients the opportunity to order from a weekly menu in quantities of their choosing. We offer delivery service for orders over $79 and a discount if you choose to Pick up the meals from our kitchen!
We have determined that our Cafe will remain closed for the time being. We will reevaluate in September. We are terribly sorry for any inconvenience this causes our customers, but the level of business is not enough to support remaining open. Thank you for understanding.
Our Corporate Catering will start back up again soon, but will be limited at this time. We will be working first with our Premier Clients (who have been with us for years.) And, then will open up catering options for new clients as time passes.
Options are limited to Individually packaged meals at this time. We do have both Hot and Cold options. Pricing has changed with these new guidelines and with the increase in food prices we are experiencing and with the increased packaging required for the individually portioned meals.
New Menus will be posted within the next couple of weeks.
Private Catering will also be limited, but we will take inquiries on a one-off basis. As with Corporate Catering, new menus will be posted in the next couple of weeks.
