“We are commercial property managers of a large portfolio. Every year we like to cater breakfast to each of our individual tenants. This is a large task as we have several properties across town. In years past we have tried to use several catering companies and unfortunately had always had problems with them meeting our expectations. Year after year we were disappointed and at one point had discussions about possibly finding another tenant appreciation to offer. In conversation, we had heard about the great job that DISH catering had done for one of our tenants in the past, and that started our beautiful relationship with owner Joe Horn. Since we hired Joe multiple years ago, he has never let us down, he has delivered in some of the worst Northern Nevada weather we’ve had. Never to be late, nor fail on presentation and always delivers great food! He and his staff are professional, courteous and have true pride in what they do. DISH will always be our #1 recommendation for all catering jobs large or small!!"

“"Being in sales, I cater lunches on a weekly basis, and I use Dish Cafe almost exclusively. The staff is friendly, helpful, and consistently deliver the best, healthy food for my customers. My customers genuinely get excited when they see Dish being delivered! It sets the stage for a great sales presentation and Dish has something that can be ordered for anyone, even those with dietary restrictions. Although they are extremely busy, they have come to my assistance many times when I have a last minute catering request. They have made my life much easier, knowing that I will always get a quality catering delivered, no matter the time or quantity. It's great having a company that I can always trust for my business and they are a vital part of my success. Simply put - they are the best.”

“We love Dish! From placing the orders, right through to the delivery and set up, Dish does a wonderful job! The food is excellent and well displayed and the staff is very attentive to our catering needs. Whenever we cater from Dish people always ask where it's from, and comment on how much they like it. But for me as an Events person, it begins way before the event, from taking the time to connect with you in a timely manner, to making sure you get what you want, to tweaking the order if necessary, to staying within the budgets that are set, Dish has always done that and the quality of the food is amazing!”
Dawn Coots, Desert Reseach Institute
“Working with Joe and the Dish Café Catering staff is a delight. Joe is responsive, friendly, and helpful, as are the staff that we have worked with. The food is always cooked perfectly, tastes great, and presented in an appealing manner. We enjoy working with Dish so much that they are now our go-to caterer for all large company events. ”
