At BHCC, we understand the important role food plays in the success of each event and each customer’s experience. We make sure to always find local and organic ingredients, along with sustainable poultry and meats, to be able to deliver food that is both restaurant quality and presented creatively. When you think Bar Harbor Catering Company, you surely think of food first, right? Every successful event doesn't just start with great food - it’s the attentiveness to the little details, in-depth logistics, and the realization of your vision coming to life. When you become our client, the kitchen is only the beginning!

So, what else do you get when you book us for your full-service event? We provide our clients with an extensive array of additional benefits that include:

  • Rentals coordination

  • Assistance with the day-of schedule

  • Access to our preferred vendors and venue lists

  • Venue set-up planning and production

  • Site visits

  • Unlimited calls/emails/meetings/menu revisions and reminders throughout the planning process

  • Day-of setup

  • Basic decor for food stations and bar

  • Extensive cleanup (including trash and bottle/can removal)

  • Free use of our tabletop catering equipment (platters, serving utensils, bar equipment, coolers) and our refrigerated trailer

Not sure how to juggle the rentals on top of mapping out your schedule? Just pick your patterns and styles and we’ll act as a liaison between you and the rental company, handling any changes and revisions throughout the planning process. We offer seamless integration with the rental company by checking in the rentals before the event and setting them back up for pick up after the event. And, there’s no need to worry about when you’re going to have your first dance or when the salad should be served. We’ll go over every detail with you to make sure your day-of schedule meets your vision and that the day’s activities flow seamlessly. Besides the food, the next most important aspect of an event is its design. We pay careful attention to specific details such as the color and theme of your event, centerpieces, decorations, the flow of traffic through the event and table layout, timing, lighting, and music, and we use all these aspects to guide the food presentation and event planning throughout your event.

Have you ever seen Top Chef Restaurant Wars? That’s basically what we do at every event, no matter the size. We create a fully functioning “restaurant” at your event’s location, serve top-notch food and beverage to you and your guests, and then take it all down (leaving it better than we found it!). And we typically do it all in 12 hours or less!

Whether you’re planning a wedding, a large corporate party, or an intimate birthday bash, we want to help you make it a stress-free and spectacular event. Check out our FAQs for additional information or click the button below and shoot us an email - we'd love to chat more!
