LocalCatering.com is a national company that eliminates the tedious task of finding the right caterer, banquet hall & other merchants for events such as wedding or corporate events. Until now planning an event required weeks or even months of calls, faxes, and meetings or the assistance of an event coordinator. Finally though, a service is offered to the public that automatically gets event requests to qualified merchants in seconds. Customers simply fill out one free simple form at http://www.localcatering.com and in hours, caterers & venues will submit bids for the event.
LocalCatering.com represents over 7,000 qualified merchants nationwide from caterers and venues to limousines services and photographers. ÂLocalCatering.com reduces the time and effort involved in planning events while saving customers money. In less than one hour, a client can receive up to five proposals for any event service such as catering or entertainment for their event.Â says CEO and founder Enrique Rangel. LocalCatering.com is also the only company in the United States that finances weddings nationwide. Customers simply fill out a financing request and the information is made available to local lenders. The company also provides customer reviews on merchants so that customers can make an educated decision on the best merchants for their events. Customers have claimed savings of over $3,000 on their weddings by using LocalCatering.com.
LocalCatering.com was created in 2001 to fill a gap in the catering industry. While most industries had quickly adopted the Internet, the catering industry was conspicuously lagging behind. Customers in search of caterers did not have the luxury of going to one place and finding caterers, entertainers, banquet halls and photographers for their event. The concept of LocalCatering.com was created to fill this gap, by placing a dedicated team of caterers, developers, and marketing professionals together to create an event marketplace where customers and merchants come together. In 2002, LocalCatering has gone nationwide and now generates over $12.3 million a month in referrals to its merchants, up 300% from last year. LocalCatering.com will be expanding to Canada in the next 2 months.
