Know Your Audience

First things first – who are you feeding? Understanding your guests is crucial. Are they adventurous eaters or do they prefer familiar favorites? Any dietary restrictions to consider? Tailoring your menu to your audience ensures everyone leaves satisfied.



Interactive Food Stations

Want to really underscore the importance of food in events? Consider interactive food stations. A build-your-own taco bar, a carving station, or a mac & cheese bar with a variety of toppings and mix -ins not only offers customization but also encourages mingling and conversation.


Don't Forget the Drinks

At Catering by John Lowe, we believe that the perfect beverage can elevate any dining experience. Signature drinks tantalize taste buds, complement the cuisine, and can be enjoyed as mocktails or customized with spirits for adult preferences. Whatever your preference, signature drink pairings are designed to enhance your event and leave a lasting impression on your guests.


Presentation Matters

We eat with our eyes first, right? Work with your caterer to ensure the presentation is as impressive as the flavors. From elegant plating for seated dinners to eye-catching buffet displays, Catering by John Lowe's visual appeal significantly enhances the dining experience.

Sweet Endings

End on a high note with desserts that leave a lasting impression. Offer an array of bite-sized treats for guests to sample a variety of flavors. Interactive dessert stations, like a make-your-own donut sundae bar, add a fun and memorable element to the experience. And why not incorporate local flavors here too? Consider featuring a pretzel wall showcasing pretzels from Lititz, PA, the birthplace of pretzels in America. This combination of variety, interactivity, and local flair ensures your dessert offerings will be both delicious and unforgettable.
