About Catering by Michaels
At Catering by Michaels, we are passionate about providing a beautiful and creative epicurean experience that truly captures the unique flavor and style of your wedding. But, we don’t stop there. It’s our goal to exceed your expectations and create an unforgettable experience for you and your guests. To do so, we take the time to listen and understand not just your vision, but also your personal taste, interests, and likes and dislikes, ensuring that your wedding is the perfect reflection of you.
Since no two couples are the same, every wedding we design and cater is truly one-of-a-kind and customized just for you. We offer a variety of different price points and menu styles for you to choose from. Your Event Coordinator will walk you through the entire process and help you design an unforgettable menu that you and your guests will be talking about for years to come.
Sustainability and Community
Why do we care about sustainability? Because let’s face it, it’s the right thing to do — not just for us, but also for our clients and humanity as a whole. Our industry is one of excess and waste, and we feel a great responsibility to impact change and do our part to forge a greener future. Since the environment directly impacts the quality of the ingredients we have available to us, it’s quite evident that the more we take care of the earth, the more it will take care of us.
Our dedication to environmental practices was recognized and voted on by our peers when we received the NICE Award for Best Responsible Event (Lollapalooza) in 2013 and 2014. We are a founding member of the Illinois Food Scrap Coalition and members of the Green Chicago Restaurant Coalition. We are also proud to be both Green Seal and Green Restaurant Certified! Some of our sustainability efforts include our recycling, composting, and grease recycling programs, our use of ecofriendly office and cleaning supplies, our use of motion censored lighting, our in-house sustainability team which works to educate and training managers and employees, and our consciousness in the food that we purchase.
