The Cincinnati Catering Difference with Raffel’s
Posted By: 
Monday, April 13, 2015

After 42 years of being in business, you’d think we would have run out of things to talk (rather, write) about in the catering business. But as with any business, the ins and outs continue to grow and change. And so does the technology, hence why we’re now a part of the Cincinnati catering blogging world. Though we don’t like to brag about our outstanding services and delicious foods — though we were just bestowed the 2015 Best of MyWedding award — there is something we offer at Raffel’s Catering that sets up apart from other Cincinnati catering companies: our food.

While you may be thinking, “Of course you offer food. That’s why you’re a catering company,” that’s not exactly what we mean. You see, plenty of places can offer you food for a party, dinner, cocktail hour, or other formal event you have planned, but not every Cincinnati catering company can offer you menus that have food made-to-order and food made from scratch. But with Raffel’s Catering at your event, you’ll receive only that. And we think that food is pretty darn delectable, if we do say so. We may be a little bit biased, though.

Other banquet halls and Cincinnati catering companies can offer you “catered” food. This may be prepackaged food that was made previously that would only be heated up at the venue before the big event. That has never been the case in our 42 years of business as a catering company at Raffel’s. Because we started out (and still are) a family-owned business, the integrity our family started with still runs deep in our blood today. This is why it is so important to us that we offer you the best menus for your event. Fresh-to-order food and options made from scratch mean you’ll be dining on a meal just like grandma would’ve made, only you won’t get your cheeks pinched while dining.

We choose the freshest of ingredients to incorporate into the foods featured on each one of our distinct menus here at Raffel’s, and we make our foods from scratch as well. That’s right, that mouth-watering macaroni and cheese that you can’t stop dreaming of didn’t come from a box; it came from hardworking hands. But our unique offerings as a Cincinnati catering business don’t end there. We can also cater (pardon the bad pun) to your dietary needs. Whether you have a hoard of hungry vegetarians on your hands, are in need of vegan-friendly options, or if your diet mandates gluten-free food, we can make it all! Special menu requests are available on many of our menus, all of which are handcrafted especially for your event.

When choosing a Cincinnati catering option for your next event, the difference with Raffel’s Catering at the helm is clear: we serve you food that we know was cooked, baked, and delivered by us. With more than 40 years’ worth of experience under our heavily notched belt, we can ensure not only is there a savory and flavorful catering option for you, but we made those options and would never just heat them up in a microwave for you or your guests. With Raffel’s, as a family-owned business, not only is Cincinnati catering in our blood, but will also leave your stomach happy.

Feel free to browse our numerous photo galleries to see the Cincinnati catering options, including food, dessert, cocktail, and countless other selections Raffel’s has to offer for your next event. See all of our menus and their various offerings here.
