Only received positive feedback. The CEO said, "keep them on our list"!! Best salad he has had here in 6 months!


Many, many thanks for your help in planning yesterday’s Garden Club outing featuring your delicious and creatively assembled box lunches. The lunch options offered allowed our members to choose a meal to their liking. Everyone was very complimentary regarding their selections..... especially those yummy cocoanut macaroons! Your driver arrived right on the dot of 10:00 and was so sweet and pleasant. Love your truck, too! I was able to get the lunches into my coolers and get to our destination in plenty of time. You all helped made my event planning so much easier. We had a wonderful day and Freedom a la Cart helped make that possible. I was pleased to see you included an information card with the lunches. One of our members has worked with Catch Court through our church, St. Patrick’s Episcopal , Dublin OH. She spent a few minutes talking about the important work you are doing. Many of our members were not aware of your business and the mission of Catch Court. I would not hesitate to recommend Freedom a la Cart for catering ...and an in-person visit to your downtown location. Best of luck in your continued good work.
