Choose Catering in Philadelphia this Thanksgiving

holiday catering

Thanksgiving is just a few days away, which means that you need to get your last-minute affairs in order. Cooking for a crowd, even a small one, is a whole lot of work, and it takes a lot of time and planning, too. Add in the reality that the slightest thing can upset otherwise good planning to underscore the importance of being ready before the day of.

Throw in that this will be a Thanksgiving like no other. Here in Philadelphia, we’re working with a new set of restrictions on indoor dining and gathering in general. Still, Thanksgiving is a time that people gather and show thanks, and if you’re going to be with family or friends (or both) this Thanksgiving, here are some of the best reasons our Philadelphia Waterfront catering services can benefit you.

Save time and money

Thanksgiving is a time to show thanks and to celebrate with the most important people in your life. The more time you can save that you can spend with them, the better. Believe it or not, you can actually save both time and money when you choose “catering near me” instead of preparing your own meal.

How you can save time is almost so obvious it doesn’t need to be explicitly stated. Those who cook a turkey “a la tradition” are in for an all-day affair one way or the other. Even if you’re going to make a less conventional Thanksgiving meal, it’s still going to eat up hours of your time that you could otherwise spend with your guests.

You can potentially save yourself some money, too, when you do it right. Our Waterfront Philadelphia location (and our other locations) offers affordable catering, which can put some of your hard-earned money back in your pocket.

We also tack on some other value-adds for our customers, like the fact that we deliver catered orders for free. Just call us up if you don’t believe it – no more money spent on delivery, and less money wasted on gas or in time at the store.

No more shopping for ingredients, only to forget something vital

A Thanksgiving feast draws a lot of scrutinies one way or the other, and for it to go off perfectly requires very precise planning.

Have you ever shopped for a new dish you were going to create only to get home and make the unfortunate realization that you forgot a critical spice or other even more important, central ingredient? It ruins the entire dish.

If that happens around a holiday like Thanksgiving it can throw a wrench in the entire affair.

Naturally, when you work with a Philadelphia catering company and leave the food preparation to the professionals, there’s no chance of that. You simply get to put together a winning collection of dishes from our menu and watch your guests glow with satisfaction.

No more spending hours and hours in the kitchen

Even if you’ve never slipped up before and forgotten an important ingredient, preparing a Thanksgiving feast will eat up hours of your day, and maybe hours of your day beforehand.

Choose the best catering in Philadelphia and all that can change. You won’t need to waste half of your day in the kitchen when you can spend that time with your friends and family, since they carved time out of their schedules to come to see you.

Also, we’d like to take the chance to tell you that when you choose us catering in Philadelphia, we’ll prepare your meal fresh for delivery – but not just for Thanksgiving – every time.

Less cleanup

Cleaning up some dishes and silverware is one thing, but it’s nothing compared to cleaning up after cooking. That’s only one more thing that takes time out of your Thanksgiving when you could be with your guests.

Call up Waterfront Gourmet for catering in Philadelphia this Thanksgiving and let us handle your special event. We’ll take the necessity of cleaning up after cooking off your plate and replace it with a delicious assortment of highlights from our menu.

The key takeaway – more time with loved ones

You may have noticed a theme here, and it’s that Thanksgiving is for spending more time with friends and family and less time performing other tasks. Food is a big deal, but when you hand off some of your responsibilities to our specialty food services, you’ll end up enjoying your holiday more fully.

Wherever you are in the Philadelphia area, from the Delaware River waterfront to Center City to Washington Avenue, we’ll take some of the hard work off your plate this Thanksgiving.

Just take a look at our list of locations and get on the phone with the one nearest you. We’ll work out a menu especially for you and your guests, and you can get back to what matters most – the important people in your life.
