Beginning Wednesday, August 22 from 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm, dinner each week will be a delicious, catered meal featuring select meats, seasoned vegetables and delicately flavored sides. It will be served with a salad, decadent dessert and beverage.
With beautiful centerpieces and relaxing music, you will have a delightful time with friends and family in the warm ambiance.
We comprehensively researched the best catering companies in the area and narrowed it down to two of the best.
The Mandarin UMC staff has taste-tested the finalists. They (and their waistlines) have provided rave reviews.
Each catering company will serve dinner for three weeks.
We want YOU to decide who you like best. After the six week trial, we will host a vote.
