Alaska’s Top Rated Local® Catering Company Award Winner: Sis’s Catering Company

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Sis’s Cafe and Catering is a 2019 award winner!

As one of the top five catering companies in Alaska, Sis’s Catering Company has a 4.32 average star rating and an 86.19 Rating Score™. This is just one of the reviews that got them here:

“Joe and his team catered my wedding in Big Lake last weekend. I’ll have pictures to share once my photographer provides them. The food was delicious and raved about by others. They overcame obstacles without involving me and problem solved to help me with bartenders that were very late [due to] the logistics of the venue. I would definitely refer them to anyone needing a caterer or just a bite to eat. Thank you, Joe and team!” -Brittany P.

Not Your Average Catering Company

We spoke with Joe Davidson, the owner of Sis’s Cafe and Catering, about the business’ stupendous online reputation.

We asked Joe what he believes it is that sets Sis’s Cafe and Catering apart from other catering companies in Alaska. “It’s fresh ingredients and homemade products; we make everything here. That’s pretty rare in our industry anymore, when everything in this day and age is either manufactured or prefab or commercialized,” he said. “It’s hard, and it has to be small independents that have that niche, or otherwise, the big boys, the chains, will just take us over.”

It’s important to Joe to take care of both his team and their customers. “Our mission is to take care of our associates and to deliver a quality product. At the end of the day, of course, satisfying our customers is important. We look for green products in our disposables; we try to use organic products so we look after the health and well-being of our customers, as well as the things we throw away and discard. What are we buying and what are they going to do to our environment long-term? People always talk all the time that it starts with one person, and I’m a firm believer in that,” he said.

Building Success Through Consistent Quality and Service

What’s the Sis’s Cafe and Catering secret to success? According to Joe, “It’s consistency in our product and value in our local customers. I think that’s the key to most businesses but it’s certainly been ours over the years.”

Here’s Joe’s advice to other businesses that want to build up a great online reputation:

“Take care of your customers; stay on top of any kind of feedback, negative and positive, and follow up. I think it’s pretty important to follow up with your customers.”


Congratulations to the team at Sis’s Cafe and Catering for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Joe, for taking the time to speak with us!

“[This] team of food pros made total peace in our family of omnivores and vegetarians. From the moment they showed up at 8 am to start roasting the pig, to the very last rinsing of the very last dish at 11 pm, Traditions Catering staff was friendly, welcoming, professional, and seamless. The vegetarians were thrilled to have so many good looking great tasting options—the gouda mac and cheese was a particular hit. Rev listened to our ideas for a southern barbecue and made everything happen right on time. This must be the result of 10,000 hours of expertise in a tough business. Truly a team of winners in every way!” -Jacey

Not Your Average Catering Company

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Chupper Time Catering is not only the number one catering company in the entire state of Alabama, but also one of the top 10 businesses in the state!

More than 100 positive reviews on verified sites have earned them a perfect 100.00 Rating Score™ and a 4.94 average star rating. These are just two of those reviews:

“Brandon and Casey Crosby of Chupper Time Catering catered our daughter Sydney and her husband Alex’s wedding… Every bit of our experience with them was top notch, and the food was outstanding. From the original tasting menu, the appetizers of sweet and sour pork meatballs and petite banh mi sandwiches through the entrees of pork tenderloin and pecan encrusted chicken, the best greens and grits I’ve ever eaten [and] the salad. We can’t recommend them highly enough. They helped make a special occasion absolutely magical for us and the newlyweds!” -Paul B.

“This food is amazing! I had Chupper Time for breakfast, lunch, and dinner today. I love everything I have ever tried from them! Corned beef hash, pig and grits, chicken salad, empanadas, egg rolls, collards, peppito cheese, and the posole soup are all out of this world! Chef and his wife Casey are the most sincere and friendly people you will meet! Please open a restaurant!” -Angela M.

Not Your Average Catering Company

We spoke with Casey Crosby, who co-owns Chupper Time with her husband Brandon.

A 2019 Top Rated Local award isn’t the only accolade Chupper Time has received. In fact, they’ve had a bit of a wild ride, filled with success, that doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. “We’ve won a show on Food Network. Our other owner is a badass touring chef. Whether we’re rated number one or not, my husband is a number one chef,” Casey said. “He’s an absolute machine! He’s toured with Zach Brown, the WWE, and other big names. He does everything from prep to plating, and he even does the dishes. We’re the best catering company because he’s the best chef.”

Building Success By Doing What They Love

Our team asked Casey why she and Brandon do what they do. “We like to cook by taste and follow our own path. The easiest way for us to do what we love and start a family was to start our business,” she said. “We strive to give people the best food and service, every time. Most importantly we did it for our family.”

Here’s Casey’s advice to other businesses that want to build an awesome online reputation:

“Communicate, be patient, and don’t accept no for an answer.”


Congratulations to the team at Chupper Time Catering for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Casey, for taking the time to speak with us!

Texas’ Top Rated Local® Catering Company Award Winner: Delvin’s Restaurant and Catering

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce Delvin’s Restaurant and Catering is a 2018 award winner!

“Y’all should be ashamed of yourselves for having food that tastes so good. That sweet potato casserole? Have you no sense of decency? I’m going to have to buy a whole new wardrobe because your food is gonna put me up a few sizes, and y’all are gonna have that on your conscience. Why don’t I just not eat the food, you ask? Well, have you had their food? I rest my case.” -Jonathan G.

“I’ve eaten here only a handful of times. I’ve tried something different each time and have enjoyed each new dish. My favorite so far is the meatloaf. Add in a side of the greens and I’m in heaven. Their tea is always fresh and perfect. The desserts are fabulous. Their pecan pie tastes exactly like the homemade treat my grandmother always made. There’s just something about good home cooking!” -Leslie S.

Reviews just like these have earned Delvin’s Restaurant a 98.28 Rating Score™, a 4.83 average star rating, and a spot among the top 10 restaurants in the entire state of Texas!

A One-of-a-Kind Restaurant’s Secret to a Strong Online Reputation

We spoke with the man himself, Delvin, about his restaurant’s stellar online reputation.

One thing that became overwhelmingly clear to us from our conversation is his dedication to quality in all that he does. “Hard work pays off. If you’re not consistent at what you’re doing, you won’t get consistent results. You get what you pay for. If you only want quantity, I’m not your man. If you want quality, I’m your man,” he said.

Building Success Through Quality

Delvin’s secret to success is really no secret at all. In fact, all it really boils down to is great food. “Our food speaks for itself,” he said. “Basically, all of our catering business is done through word of mouth. We don’t use business cards or anything. We’re consistent and we under promise and over deliver.”

This is Delvins’s advice to other business owners that want to build an awesome online reputation:

“Make sure you have a staff that has the same vision and mission as you do. Have a good community and good communication between employees and customers.”


Thank you for speaking with us, Delvin! Congratulations to the team at Delvin’s Restaurant and Catering for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner!

Oregon’s Top Rated Local® Catering Company Award Winner: Artemis Foods

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Artemis Foods is a 2018 award winner!

With a 98.20 Rating Score™ and a 4.82 average star rating, Artemis Foods is not only one of the top five catering companies in Oregon, but one of the top 100 businesses in the entire state. Here is just one of the fabulous reviews they’ve received:

“Artemis was the caterer for a recent business event at the Portland Art Museum. They were highly responsive to my initial price and menu inquiries and efficient in putting together a cocktail reception menu and floor plan. Most impressively, they did all of this from a distance (our organization is based in New York), and on somewhat short notice. [The employee] who I worked with, gave great advice on the number of hors d’oeuvres to order, and smart suggestions for the room arrangement. He was also happy to include a vegan and gluten-free option on our menu. I plan all my organization’s business events, and often receive phone calls from colleagues on site to fix last-minute issues or report problems. I got no such call this time — everything went smoothly. I also heard that the food was great!” -Hannah S.

Not Your Average Catering Company

We spoke with Heidi Ingelfinger, the senior event planner at Artemis Foods, about the business’ online reputation:

First things first, we wanted to know the Artemis Foods secret to success. “Our food quality is outstanding, we pride ourselves on using the freshest ingredients and all food comes from less than 10 hours away from Portland. Customer service is always a huge priority as well. We make sure our clients are 100 percent satisfied. Any time we start working with a client they are dealing with the same point of contact for their entire experience. We want to make sure they have the event exactly as they want it, and they are reexplaining their needs,” Heidi said. “We also focus on complete sustainability, from the trucks we use, bio-diesel trucks, to all products we use. We recycle absolutely everything we can and bring all food waste back to our location for compost. We are very focused on environmental sustainability.”

Building Success Through Accountability and Service

Heidi is an important member of the Artemis Foods team, and through the work she has done, she has learned what it takes to get a solid online reputation. Here’s her advice to others that want to build, maintain, or improve their online reputation:

“Be as responsive as possible when people reach out to you. Not only is it important to have a solid answering system ready and able to help prospective clients, but it’s also very important to have a strong follow up plan and do so in a timely manner. Also, be up front about the services you offer and make sure when you claim to offer something it is truly what you offer an it is at a high quality. Finally, set the goal of not just meeting client expectations but exceeding client expectations.”


Congratulations to the team at Artemis Foods for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Heidi, for taking the time to speak with us!

Customer service is second to none! Ambience is very nice. They go out of their way to do the little things, which are huge! I had the pleasure of meeting their general manager… and while they function like friends and family, they’re just a very well-balanced and acquainted staff. They have so much happening in this place that you just gotta try it for yourself! You won’t be disappointed!” – Michelle R.

Not Your Average Catering Company

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Portland Catering Company is a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner, thanks to their 97.88 Rating Score™ and 4.79-star average rating on verified review sites!

“Our experience was wonderful – Julie is great to work with, super helpful with menu recommendations, and quick to respond. This is our second year using Portland Catering Company for our annual volunteer appreciation banquet, and we’ll certainly do so again! The food is always excellent – I can vouch for last year’s chicken cordon bleu and mashed potatoes myself, as we had leftovers enough for staff. This year I didn’t get to try any of the chicken, but I heard rave reviews from our guests! The presentation is always great, delivery is always timely, and we would definitely recommend your services!” -Emily C.

“We met with a lot of catering companies as we planned our backyard wedding reception with about 65 guests. After meeting with our list of catering companies, it was a clear and easy decision to go with Portland Catering Company. They were responsive and flexible as they helped us plan and customize our menu, and they thought of all the small details all while keeping within our budget. With all the moving pieces for a wedding and back yard reception, catering was one thing that we just didn’t have to worry about. Portland Catering Company just took care of it.” -Andy G.

A One-of-a-Kind Catering Company’s Secret to a Strong Online Reputation

We spoke with Julie, the event and sales manager at Portland Catering Company, about her business’ outstanding online reputation.

Of course, we first wanted to know what the Portland Catering Company’s secret to success is. “Just this year, we started asking our clients for reviews,” Julie said. “We try really hard to respond to our clients quickly and get them what they need. We just want to be the biggest advocate for them. People don’t use catering all the time and it’s a very expensive thing to pursue, so I want to make sure they make an informed decision”

Making the World a Better Place By Bringing People Together

Julie and the rest of the Portland Catering Company team are wholeheartedly dedicated to the work they do. They know what a big impact it can make on the special moments in people’s lives. She said, “For me, it’s much bigger than just creating a stress-free catering experience. I love to feed people; food makes me happy and it makes everybody happy! When you have an occasion like a wedding or party, people remember the food. If you’re paying for catering, it should be amazing and something that people talk about! Her mission is to make people happy when it comes to food!”

This is the advice Julie has for other businesses:

“Cater to your clients and work with them.”

Oregon’s Top Rated Local® Catering Company Award Winner: Claeys Catering

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Claeys Catering is a 2018 award winner!

“Honestly, I can’t say enough good things about Claey’s; if I could give more than 5 stars for quality of service I would. They deserve at least 10. Jim and Nathan are wonderful (I’m sure everyone else is too, but I only had direct contact with them) and really, really go out of the way to work with you and aid if needed – my parents were originally going to pick up the catering and bring it with them, but the containers were larger than expected and wouldn’t fit both on top of my parents’ Escape, so Jim (I was having my makeup done when they arrived, so I’m 90% sure is was Jim) followed them up to the location in a truck to make sure the food got there on time (my parents, however, would not tell me if there was an additional cost to this). The food itself was a hit, so convenient and delish and plated beautifully. I got little picnic tents to keep the bugs out, and they didn’t bat an eye at me asking for specific plates sizes. Definitely coming to them for catering in the future – though next time I’ll make sure a truck is taken to transport anything :)thank you, Claeys, for helping my wedding run so smoothly!” -Haleigh

“Claey’s Catering is AMAZING. The food is wonderful. The staff is super friendly. We planned our wedding in Oregon from out-of-state, and they made the catering side of wedding planning easy. They also offered tasty vegan and gluten-free options, so that all of our guests could eat a full meal. We have nothing but wonderful things to say about them. THANK YOU!” -Tiffany

These are just two of the stellar reviews Claeys has received, giving them a 4.99-star rating average and 99.00 Rating Score™, as well as the top spot on the list of the top 10 caterers in Oregon!

A One-of-a-Kind Catering Company’s Secret to a Strong Online Reputation

Our team spoke with Nathan Claeys, the manager of Claeys Catering, about his family business’ phenomenal online reputation.

We first asked Nathan what sets his business apart from other catering companies. “We’re a family-owned business, each customer speaks with a family member who has Claey as their last name, so each person is invested in the business and wants to make sure each customer is treated like a star.

Making the World a Better Place By Staying Committed To Client Satisfaction

Nathan and his family are truly dedicated to making important moments special. “It goes back to providing a great service and treating people better than expected (as well as giving them the best food they can imagine eating),” he said. “It also provides us the ability to work together as a family and create something for ourselves that we can be proud of.”

His advice to other businesses looking to build an awesome online reputation? “Provide the best in service and take care of your customers. Ask for the reviews or people usually leave one on their own.”


Thank you for speaking with us, Nathan! Congratulations to the team at Claeys Catering for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner!

Oregon’s Top Rated Local® Catering Company Award Winner: Twist Cocktail Catering Co.

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Twist Cocktail Catering Co. is a 2018 award winner!

“We used Twist for a surprise birthday party and although we had hired them for only one night, they were willing to help us days before (planning, scheming, etc.). Not only did they show up exactly when we had asked them to, they were patient enough to wait since the birthday boy hadn’t left the building. We stayed in constant communication and they were so responsive. We had established a financial amount that we wanted to be made aware of and the team was quick to let us know when they thought we had reached the amount (as we had two bars). Towards the end of the night, the team walked through the area as we had rented glassware and they wanted to be sure we found every one which we did. They dress professionally, treated our guests with kindness and check in with my throughout the night to ensure all was going as expected. I couldn’t recommend them enough…they were incredible!” -Kelly

“My guests were blown away with how amazing the bartenders and drinks were! They were still talking about it at brunch the next day! The bartenders were very professional and friendly and went above and beyond every expectation I had! They kept the tables free of clutter and even helped put away our catering just because they are awesome! They were also very helpful leading up to the event, answered any questions I had very quickly and worked with my budget to find what would be best for us and our guests. I cannot recommend Twist enough!” -Alexandra

These are just a couple of the reviews that contribute to Twist Cocktail Catering being one of the top three catering companies in the entire state of Oregon.

Not Your Average Catering Company

Tirzah Matthews, owner of Twist Cocktail Catering Co., about her business’ impressive online reputation.

When asked what makes Twist different from other catering companies, Tirzah said “Twist is a beverage catering company, we have the ability to curate your beverage experience in addition to provide your food.

Building Success By Going Above and Beyond

Like any award-winning business owner, Tirzah has wisdom to share. Here’s the advice she has for other businesses looking to build or improve their online reputation:
