Planning an event can be stressful, exhausting, and enough to make you wish you were a hermit with no obligations to anyone. If it’s a small group, you might worry there won’t be enough going on to keep everyone interested and happy. If it’s a big event, you may wonder how you can get everything done. Maybe you can’t cook. Or perhaps you can, but you’re looking for close to perfection. Now and then, it’s good to spoil yourself. Hiring a caterer has a calming effect on the host.

Anyone who has ever thrown even a modest dinner party knows that it can take a full day or two to organize and set up. How refreshing for someone else to come up with a menu, haul out the linens, set the table, whip up the food, pour the wine, clear the dishes, and take out the trash.

When it comes to weddings, engagements, baby showers, anniversaries, dinner parties, retirements, and corporate events, you can lean on professionals like McNellie’s Group Catering, which has been making Green Country’s event planning easier for 10 years.

“I delivered the first catering ever in my car 10 years ago from our flagship, the original McNellie’s Public House. It was for a holiday party,” says Tiffany Turner-Coats, director of catering and events and operating partner for the McNellie’s Group. “I brought artichoke dip, sliders, chips and salsa, and egg rolls.

“Today, we can accommodate anything you want. With the force of more than a half dozen restaurants and their carefully crafted menus standing behind the McNellie’s Catering Group, you can be sure that whatever catering you need for your event, we can set you up.”

Fresh and delicious sushi from Yokozuna? Yes. Sliders from McNellie’s? No problem. Pizza from Elgin Park and brats from Fassler Hall? Easy as can be. But what if you want a custom menu? That amazing culinary team is ready to make your catering wishes come true. Food is one thing to cross off your list.

“We can arrange a custom menu to accommodate your budget,” says Turner-Coats. “We’re budget-friendly. We work with a lot of nonprofits on a budget. We don’t want to leave anyone out. We try to make things work.”

McNellie’s Catering Group puts a real emphasis on creating the perfect experience with their events.

“Let’s say we’re part of your wedding, a bar mitzvah, or a 50th anniversary. They’re important events. They’ll be remembered for the rest of your life. It’s a very special experience, and I don’t take it lightly,” says Turner-Coats

If you need a space for your event, look no further than the McNellie’s Group event space, The Bond. The main room has a spacious vintage look and is customizable.

“It was originally The Bond Bakery. We wanted to keep the history intact with the tin-stamped ceiling, brick wall, big sunny windows, and hardwood floor,” she says. “It’s an industrial space, but warm. The perfect combination.”

With round tables and chairs, the main space can hold about 300 people. Or if you picture more of a cocktail party setup, you can invite over 400 of your closest friends. If you need room for another 50 people, or if you want a smaller room, try The Bond’s side space.

“The annex can hold 50 people,” says Turner-Coats. “It has a whitewashed floor, exposed brick, and a patio.”

If you need McNellie’s catering to come to your home, office, business, or whatever location you choose, they love to bring the event to you. “We can bring steam tables, chafing dishes, food service equipment, bartenders, servers, bussers, and dishwashers,” she says. “We can serve up a full-plate meal, do a custom pasta bar. We’ve done brats and wings at a golf course, and Mexican-themed lunches. We’re a one-stop-shop. There’s no limitation when we go off-site on the size of the group.”

McNellie’s can pull from all its restaurants, and that creative, skilled kitchen staff, not to mention the on-site bakery putting out fresh breads, pastries, buns, and more.

Do you want a breakfast meeting? McNellie’s can bring freshly baked scones, a cereal bar, or a full hot breakfast, including scrambled eggs, breakfast potatoes, fresh fruit, and mini muffins with a choice of breakfast meats. Just want some snacks for your guests to graze? How about some colorful and fresh caprese kabobs or a charcuterie tray so beautiful it’s practically art. Want to provide a quick and easy lunch? Serve up an adorable sandwich box lunch with choice of bread, meat, and cheese served with shredded lettuce, sliced tomato, mustard packet, mayo packet, chips, and assorted cookies. Or a fresh and light lunch of soups and salads like rich and creamy tomato bisque or the unique shaved Brussels sprouts Caesar.

If you’re looking for a full meal, McNellie’s can set up a taco bar, a fajita bar, and more, or set up plated meals of salmon, pork tenderloin, and filet. They can deliver dessert trays, beverages, and beautiful and impressive sushi trays. The choices are endless.
