Creedon and Co., Inc. is also authorized to provide catering services for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts under state contacts GRO27 and GRO25.

To ensure consistent quality of our food, we typically stay within 1 hour of our Worcester facility for catering service including Boston, Providence, Nashua and Springfield areas. To inquire about locations outside of this range, please call and speak with an event coordinator.

Yes! Our agile and responsive kitchen is skilled at quick turn-around, and can accommodate short notice. Be assured – we are ALWAYS available to cater your memorial meal, bereavement or funeral.

Is it possible to create a custom menu?

Absolutely! The menus we have on our website are “idea-sparkers” to help guide you in setting up a well-rounded meal. We are happy to substitute, remove or add items to create the menu that will suit your taste buds and budget. Have a budget but not a menu in mind? Let our event coordinators develop a menu for you.

Can you accommodate special dietary needs?

Yes! Our skilled culinary professionals have experience in vegetarian, gluten-free, and allergy-aware cooking. They are Allergen ServSafe certified and trained, as is a number of our catering staff.

What is the difference between drop-off (DO) or in-place (IP) catering?

When planning an event, sometimes it isn’t necessary for catering staff to be present. For these events, Creedon and Co., Inc. offers drop-off (DO) service. When you choose a DO, Creedon and Co., Inc. staff deliver food items and set up the buffet (including chafers for hot food, beverages, etc.), then return typically the following day to retrieve any equipment. At an in-place (IP), Creedon and Co., Inc.’s professional catering team is on-site for the duration of the event including setup and breakdown, service throughout and rubbish removal at the conclusion.

Do you charge for delivery?

Yes. The delivery charge covers fuel and staff time expenses. The amount is calculated based on the distance to your site. Typically our delivery charge is $39-$59 and includes retrieval of equipment in the case of DO service.

Do you provide children’s meals?

Children under the age of 10 are encouraged to enjoy the menu already being served, but are charged at half of the price.

Do you have a venue where we can hold our event?

We are very familiar with a number of regional venues such as museums, halls and parks. In addition, Creedon and Co., Inc. is the exclusive caterer and equipment provider of The Hall at Saint George located at 30 Anna Street in Worcester. For further information, visit www.TheHallAtSaintGeorge.com or call (508) 438-3770.

Our inventory includes small to large tents, tables in a variety of sizes and shapes, chairs from basic folding to gold Chiavari ballroom, linen, tableware (china, glassware, and flatware), dance floors, stages, portable HVAC and more.

When do you need my final headcount and any last changes?

We ask that you provide your final guest count and any final menu adjustments 7 days prior to your event. Should your count increase after this time, please call and speak with our event coordinators.

If alcohol is being served, how is licensing and insurance handled?

Creedon and Co., Inc. is fully insured, including liquor liability, and holds a state-wide Caterers License for alcohol service issued by the Massachusetts Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission (ABCC). Depending on the location, additional city or town permits might be required, and will be obtained by Creedon and Co., Inc.
