Kowalski's Markets :|: Catering

We've been privileged to work with some really great individuals and companies over the years. It's always a pleasure to hear from satisfied customers.

Wonderful, wonderful!! My policy is "go Kowalski's or just don't go"! The trays were perfect and the delivery was on time.
– Thanks again, Cindy G.
I was exceedingly pleased with everything that was done for my daughter's graduation party. Roxanne was so patient, so reassuring and so correct on many different levels. We received numerous compliments on both the display as well as the wonderful food. I would go so far as to say it was outstanding. I will definitely return to Kowalski's, however, I will always desire to work with Roxanne. Not once did I feel that we were just another client or it was just another graduation party. Roxanne's professionalism is what stands out in my mind.
– Sincerely, Mary Beth R.

Wanted to let you know how wonderful our party was. The food was fabulous and Nicole, who was the bartender and server, was so wonderful. What a great PR lady you have on your staff. We had a incredible time and the guests could not say enough about the food. Thank you again, and every one at the party were aware of Kowalski's.

Hello to all of you wonderful people of Kowalski's! I wanted to send a HUGE THANK YOU for all you are doing for the bike race. Your food looks awesome, tastes awesome, and makes the volunteers feel so appreciated. When returning volunteers see that Kowalski's is doing the volunteer food again this year there is a collective "yay!" amongst them. And from me, personally, I cannot express my gratitude enough for what you are doing for our volunteers.

Please give Dick my personal thanks as well. It is a treat to see his smiling face at the venues as he drops off all the goodies.

Your execution is outstanding in every way – the right stuff, the right place, the right time, and beautifully done. The Nature Valley Bicycle Festival is lucky to have you in our corner.

I wanted to let you know that the group that catered the wedding on Saturday, May 19th did an outstanding job.

Nicole and the entire team were incredibly professional and just kind people and you could tell that they were heavily invested in making sure this event was executed flawlessly. The set up they did in the food room at our venue was amazing and was visually appealing. The food was fantastic.

Outstanding job all around. I will definitely recommend Kowalski's for future catering needs.
– Sarah D.
It went great! The whole experience with Kowalski's was wonderful!! Thank you for all your hard work and follow-up!

We just wanted to let you know that Kowalski's and the servers (I believe it was Emma and Brook) did a great job today. The food looked great and tasted wonderful and Emma and Brook were fantastic. We appreciate your help and will definitely recommend Kowalski's catering to anyone who asks. Thanks again for a great job.

The cupcakes were delicious and so pretty!!! The bride ate 2 of them at the shower – she loved them! Thank you so much for making sure my order was right!

I want to thank you for the fabulous catered lunch from Kowalski's today. Your food is so fresh, and such large portions, the men loved the sandwiches and I personally loved your Cranberry Feta Salad. Jill talked me into the Chicken Salad Croissant sandwiches and they were fabulous.

Kowalski's is catering our breakfast tomorrow morning and we are really looking forward to seeing that presentation. Kowalski's will be our "go to" for catering from now on.

Thank you for the fabulous food and the fabulous service.
– Karen F.
I apologize for the delay in expressing our thanks and appreciation for the wonderful food and service you and your staff provided at our home on Saturday. The evening was simply perfect in every respect. We received many calls and emails from our guests raving about the food and your delightful staff. . . nothing short of fabulous! We thoroughly enjoyed working with Nicole and Rene. They were professional, patient, friendly and so kind and helpful to our guests. They exceeded our expectations in every way! I hope they found us to be good hosts as well.

We look forward to future opportunities to work with you and your catering staff. Thank you again for making our party a successful and memorable event! This is a birthday John will never forget. . .

Thank you so much for all you did in preparation for the catering and décor for our wedding reception on Sunday, February 26th, at Eagan Community Center. It was such a special day for us and the food exceeded all our expectations. We received many compliments. Thanks for the care and attention you brought to this special event.
– Nicole & Jonathan
My sister hosted a bridal shower for my daughter last weekend. All the food was prepared by Kowalski's. The event was attended by 15 family and friends. All were very impressed with the theme, which was Teach the Bride to Cook. Chef Amy made it very fun for the young bride and entertaining for the guests. Amy had prepared the food in advance, but demonstrated how to prepare fresh mozzarella pesto bites, Kalbi chicken lettuce wraps and caramel apple crisp. Everything was delicious. I overheard my daughter telling a friend that wasn't at the party how unique and special the shower was. My neighbors werevery impressed with the quality of the food.

Thanks for the great memories. We will definitely use you again.
– Janet

The meal we ordered from Kowalski's was fabulous. Everyone is still talking about it! The only thing that surpassed the meal was your unbelievable instructions, help, and availability for questions. I have told everyone what superior service you provided. You are the best!
– LynMarie W.

Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did last night at the Gillette event. I did receive several compliments regarding the food, especially the desserts! You did a great job of setting up the room and I appreciate the extra touches you did in the table arrangements. It really looked very nice. You were great to work with and I enjoyed meeting you! I will be using Kowalski's catering again in the future. Thanks again!!!

I recently had a party with some of the appetizers catered by Kowalski's. It was delicious beyond compare. I ordered the meatballs, the asparagus and pear roulade, and the Jamaican jerk chicken and pineapple skewers. They were OUTSTANDING!!! The trays were delivered on time, and totally devoured!! Thanks so much to Kowalski's – my favorite!!!
– Phyllis O.

On July 24th my aunt and one of my mom's friends hosted a bridal shower brunch for me that was catered by Kowalski's, and I must say I have never seen anything so BEAUTIFUL or TASTEFUL!!!!! Everything was absolutely perfect and breathtaking! Thank you for putting so much effort into making the shower a lasting impression among not only myself but all of my family who attended as well! People were in awe of your talent! Everything I tried (and I tried it all!) was fantastic!!! I love variety, so the miniature dishes were just the right size. I will highly recommend Kowalski's catering to all! Thanks for the incredible memories!

P.S. One of my mom's friends commented, "Well I have never been to a shower like this before!"
— Danielle S.
Roxanne, thanks to you and the team for putting on a wonderful event at our house. The food was outstanding and the presentation was fantastic as well. We will not hesitate to use your services again.
— Jeremy H.
I want to say a special thank you to all the hard work you did for our wedding. You acted like we were the most important people, not only on our wedding, but leading up to our day. The food was amazing! We still to this day get so many compliments on how delicious everything was. You all went above and beyond, and we cannot thank you enough!
— Tim and Laura H.
On June 11, I held a special thank-you party for all my friends and associates who supported me during my two years of Nursing School. I wanted to enjoy the day so I purchased Kowalski deli trays and had everything delivered just a couple of hours before my guests started to arrive. Some of the trays I ordered were Belgian Endive, Mini Croissant, Sandwich Wrap, Signature Fruit, Chicken & Beef Satay, Sushi, and custom Mini Cupcakes. Everything was perfect!! I couldn’t have asked for anything more lovely to set out on my special day. I know everyone enjoyed the food because 35 people attended and there was hardly anything left over even though I purchased enough for 50! I received many compliments on the taste and appearance of everything and I was happy to say that Kowalski's created it all. The Sushi and Endive trays were particular hits but there was very little of anything left over, maybe 4 wraps, 2 mini croissants, and enough fruit for a small dish!

Anyway, the purpose of my note, in addition to complimenting Kowalski's on the service and quality food, is to express my gratitude to everyone at the Oak Park Heights store who helped to make this very special event so wonderful and successful. Whenever I shop at the store, I am always greeted warmly and receive great customer service in every department. I must admit, that although I am a frequent shopper, it is always nice to be remembered. It is a tribute to store and the culture of service that Kowalski's promotes. The management team must go out of their way to find, retain, and support their employees to make it all happen.
— Thank you, Joanne A.
Our birthday party was a great success. Kowalski's food (all of it) was wonderfully delicious, we had so many great compliments. The birthday cake was also over the top. Please extend our thanks to Rachel and Maggie. The delivery went well and your attention to detail with everything needed included. Each of you were so easy to work with. We will certainly recommend each of you for help in planning a party. We had about 120 attending.
— Terry F.
While my family and I have enjoyed shopping at your stores for a long time, we had no idea of how fantastic you would be with respect to catering. We had a dinner for some clients and their wives and I have never been more satisfied with a caterer. The planning, the delicious food and wonderful presentation, the top-notch chef and waitress - all were superb. I can't imagine our choosing another catering service.
— Richard L.
Just wanted to say THANK YOU for your catering services yesterday at our Supervalu CLOG event. Rose and her crew were AWESOME and did a wonderful job! Thanks a million.
— Dyana
Catering by Kowalski's executed a professional event with beautiful and delicious food. Exceeded my expectations that are very high. Beyond fantastic!
— Galye H.
Thank you for the wonderful job on our funeral catering Saturday. I know it was difficult to add another event to your busy holiday schedule. I was getting concerned about being able to offer something to eat to everyone who came as friends and family continued to pour into the funeral home for the service. The little girl who passed was only 8, but she touched the lives of many. She had health issues all her life yet she gave love, and more than the family expected came to share condolences in return. As you know, we estimated 75 and when the chapel was overflowing, I asked the funeral director if he could give me a crowd estimate...he told me 110. Somehow, there was enough food for everyone and we even had some leftovers, so I know each person had enough to eat.

The food was delicious (as I knew it would be), and everyone especially enjoyed the pasta salad. Thank you again for catering our funeral at such a busy time of the year.
— Claudia and the family of Carla Isabel
I just wanted to follow up with you regarding the catering and service provided for the memorial service for my partner, John.

In spite of the horrendous blizzard and almost insurmountable obstacles, your team was able to provide a brilliant appetizer buffet on time and with style. Both the server and deliveryman were very conscientious about the situation and did everything they could to make it a pleasant experience. They even helped organize the copious amounts of leftovers and packed them into our SUV at the end of the memorial!

I am very impressed and will be spreading the word about the brilliant service provided by your team. Thank you so much!
— Kind regards, Jeff
On September 25th, we had a wedding reception for our daughter that was catered by Kowalski's at the Eagan Community Center. This letter is to let you know that your catering staff did an excellent job! We received lots of compliments on the food, the presentation, and the efficiency/professionalism of your employees.
— Sincerely, Dave J.
I wanted to send a note to say thank you for helping make the grooms dinner such a success. The food was excellent, and we received many compliments on it. My only regret is that I didn't order another tray of the nut goodie bars. Needless to say, those were a huge hit! A personal thank you to all of the staff. Everyone was so helpful in guiding my decisions and your execution of the details was flawless. I have been telling everyone I know that if they have a catering event, that I was very happy with my experience at Kowalski's.
— Susan
Thank you again for a job well-done at our Northwestern Mutual intern receptions. Kowalski's were absolute rock stars! I look forward to working with you for future events.
— Hailley
I wanted to send Kowalski's a note to let everyone know how much we all enjoyed the food. Feedback from the participants in the training was excellent! Kowalski's did a fantastic job and I know that the next time we have a training in St. Paul, Kowalski's is on top of my list for catering services.
— Gail
Thank you! Everything was perfect and the food looked so beautiful and tasted so good! I was so impressed with how everything was set up...it looked so fantastic!

— Michelle & David
I just wanted to let you know how pleased I was with our order. The food was really delicious and enjoyed by our guests. The salmon was an outstanding favorite and beautifully presented!
