it has taken me so long to give you a shout out - but I’ve been in
Myrtle Beach with my family after Jenna’s graduation party. I
just wanted to say thank you for being awesome and helping make
Jenna’s gradation party more than I ever could have expected. It was
awesome. You helped me make decisions with my daughter’s party when I
was unable to and during what I call my “cancer brain” time. I couldn’t
make a decision to save my soul - and you were just the reassurance I
needed. You were the reason I choice Gourmet Express, period. Maybe
it’s because I knew we were connected when I found out we both deal with
(and love) Salem Vet!!
party was perfect. Mother Nature came in HUGE for my daughter and the
day was lovely. The two servers that worked the party were worth their
weight in gold. EVERYONE raved about how wonderful, thoughtful and on
top of things they were. They were so wonderful and thought of things
before I ever needed them. Best decision ever. Oh, and food was
awesome too. I would gladly write a review, will highly recommend you
to everyone and think you should come over sometime and have a glass of

My Mom's 90th birthday celebration went off without a hitch thanks in a large part to you and your wonderful staff. Gloria and Keith were great! It was so nice to enjoy the party and have someone else take care of the food drinks, cleanup etc. Everyone commented on how delicious the food was. I will continue to recommend Gourmet Express to anyone who is looking for a catered dinner. It is always such a pleasure working with you. Please thank Gloria and Keith for me. They are the best!

Just a quick thank you for catering my event yesterday. Hiring your company just made the shower flow. The food was wonderful and Missy was great to work with, very
professional,friendly, and easy to work with. Thanks for pushing me to
get a server :).
I will be happy to recommend your company to any of my friends in need of a caterer.

I wanted to let you know that the catering last night was
EXCELLENT! So many compliments from guests. Our crowd was at least
triple the size of last years crowd, and I know there were concerns from
your employees about running out of food, but I didn't hear a single
complaint from our guests. It was a free event, so most of our guest
were very surprised with the quality and quantity of the food. It
definitely surpassed my expectations.
Your staff was wonderful to work with, as always.
Thanks for everything,

Timing got away from me and with Grace's early arrival, and I never

beautiful shower to celebrate our special time. The food was amazing and
everyone that works with you was wonderful. I know my Mom got a ton of
compliments on everything and I wanted to be sure you knew that we are
so appreciative of how accommodating you were during the process. Thank
you, thank you, thank you!

We had a lovely retirement party yesterday.
The food was delicious; we received so many compliments. The venue was
just right. The fact that tables weren't crowded was mentioned as a
real treat. Caitlyn and Kyle were fabulous. Caitlyn was proactive in
her willingness to help even serving the plates for the 88 and 90 year
olds in the room. The young men helped us hang 2 banners, as well as
loading and unloading supplies from our cars.
It was always a pleasure to work with you. I wish you continued fortune in your business.
Thanks for making it special!

Laurie - a HUGE note of thanks for all that you and your staff did to
make our anniversary celebration sooooo memorable - even sent rain (but
no storms causing power outage),
which kept everyone tucked in TOGETHER inside AND clouds kept temps
down so inside didn't get too hot - especially in porch area. Rain-free
weather after the brunch gave people a chance to go outside, take pics
and walk around. Food was excellent - MANY commented on it - good menu
for a warm day...I would choose the same menu again - people especially
liked the "individual" quiches. Library was great spot for the
kids/cartoons/table for art projects. Thomas played the piano as
background music for the gathering time. Liked the simply elegant roses
in glasses on table with gold sprayed lemon leaves. Photos and
memorabilia table worked so well in the porch area - separate from group
yet connected. Wouldn't have changed a minute EXCEPT I so wished we
could have had more time with everyone.

I wanted to tell you that the shower was a success. I don't have
to tell you that any major event requires coordination, support, people,
the "right" venue, and great food! I've managed events in my career
and understand what goes on behind the scenes.
All of the above occurred with thanks and gratefulness to you and
your team. I received so many compliments on the food, the excellent
staff, and the beautiful venue. We couldn't have pulled it off without
the continuous support of you and your team.
Thanks again for your efforts and support, and please pass on my
thanks to your staff who served us during the event. From set-up to
clean-up, they were awesome and were complimented by many of my guests.
If you are ever in need of a recommendation, please feel free to pass on my name and number!
All the best!

Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the wonderful event last Saturday!
I received so many compliments on the food; it looked beautiful and
tasted great. Everyone enjoyed the menu (the chicken was a big hit) and
also that it was different from usual grad party fare. The staff did a
superb job with setting up, serving, and cleaning up. It was a great
afternoon. And I was able to enjoy the leftovers for a couple days
I recommend Gourmet Express whenever I can. You've always come through for us! See you in 2021! ;0)

just wanted to tell you how pleased we were with everything your company
did to make Allison's graduation party a big success. The food was
excellent and there were actual table discussions going on ranking the
foods items. It was a real toss between the Ricatta Stuffed Shells and
the Portabella Mushroom Ravioli's! And, the staff you provided to
assist was the best!
I am sure that I will have catering needs again, and will keep you at the top of the list.

Dear Laurie & Danny,
Thank you so
much for all that you did to make our memorial luncheon the great
success that it was! Laurie, you were right, you made it look
beautiful!!! The food presentation was great! Had so many compliments
on the food!!! Told them all including CC staff just how great you were
to work with too!
Hope that you are not upset with me for adding some cookies. I woke up early yesterday
in a panic that many of the guests were only coming to the luncheon and
there was no dessert. I sent my cousin to pick some up on her way to
the service and I put them on the beverage table.They were looking for a
little sweet to go with their coffee! It was such a cold day that the
coffee was a success! The cookies were definitely not as good as your
cookies or brownies. Thought the drinks and dessert afterwards would
work out at my cousin's but this worked out better. The service went so
long that many people couldn't go on for dessert and drinks. We were
at Janette's & Jesse's house. Don't they have a nice house!!!!
letting us take the food home, too. It was so cold out that it was good
in the car during the service!!! So many of the family didn't eat
so we put it all out when we got back to the house. It sure was
good!!! We were all starved. Only had about 25 people go back to the
house, mostly cousins and kids! Gave us a chance to unwind and toast my
brother, one last time together. It was a good day!
I can't thank you enough! If there is anything that I can do for you, please don't hesitate to call!!!!
May see you at Janette's daughter's graduation on June 11!
Or will be enjoying your great food in a much more relaxed
atmosphere!!! Glad that you two connected on the plane!!! What a small

I just wanted to take a minute today and thank you once again for everything. Our event was everything I dreamt it would be and more! You and your entire staff were friendly, accommodating and spot on with every single detail.
Several of my guests commented on how delicious the food was. I even had many guests rave about the punch (I have to agree- yum!) Simply amazing from start to finish!
With all we've had going on over the last several months with our house fire, I was really looking forward to a beautiful day of celebrating our new addition with our family and friends. You and your team made all of my dreams come true! It was just that, a day our family will never forget!!
Thank you again for everything, I will highly recommend you to friends and family in the future.
With love & gratitude,

in the beginning but I'm so bad with names. Anyway, she was a pleasure

cleaned up so I could enjoy spending time with my guests.

and goosebumps thinking of the lifetime memories you made possible for
ourselves, families, and friends. I received many raves of how great the food

have no words to describe how pleased I was with Gourmet Express, Longacre
House, but mostly YOU!!! From talking me off the ledge several times,
being able to understand our vision for the wedding and decorating, to
accommodating our wine needs, anticipating the guests, and our needs, and responding
positively and immediately to any and all requests, the day was beyond my
wildest dreams. The glitches were few and minor and unknown to anyone but
Piper and me.
many people had such wonderful things to say about the food, (mushroom ravioli
and beef especially!), venue, decorations, ceremony, reception, Tiger room,
etc. that I couldn't keep track! Several friends texted me on the way
home to compliment me, and my phone was ringing and buzzing the next day as
well! The compliments & positive comments on facebook and email
continue as well.
didn't expect to enjoy the wedding, thinking I would have to put out fires,
handle demands or complaints, but there were none as you anticipated everything
in advance and responded immediately to my only two requests of turning down
the lights and moving the two tables so we could be dancing fools!!! lol!
You my dear are a gem and so talented at what you do in leading the team.
Please thank Alicia and the others as well-amazing group!!! Tell

Hello Alicia, Gourmet Express and Long Acre House staff,
Thank you for organizing our event (Baby shower on December 30, 2012).
The setting was beautiful, the food was great, as were the drinks(especially
the non-alcoholic punch), and service was great. Everything was
perfect. I loved every moment of it.
Our guests had a great time, and we heard a lot of compliments for the
venue, food and drinks. Thank you.
you so much for everything. Wedding planning was at times stressful and
overwhelming but you were always such a calming force! Right from the
very beginning too. After meeting you I told my mom, "I'm so glad to
have her on our corner!" I loved the way everything turned out and
had so much fun on the wedding day. Thank you for being such a pleasure
to work with and helping me bring my ideas to life! I really enjoyed it.
Thank you for
all of your help and the wonderful service. I apologize that we were “having a
moment” during setup and I did not really get to speak with you and thank you
personally. The clients loved the food – many asked who the caterer was. I gave
them your name of course! Please thank the chef also – the gluten free items
were wonderful. I had not eaten all day and I appreciated being able to

telling you what a success the shower was on Saturday!! The food was phenomenal
and everybody had such good things to say about the meal. Your staff did such a
terrific job! They were all extremely nice and very friendly and accommodating
with our guests.When we
arrived at 11:30, the room looked so nice and everything was ready for us to be
able to set up the centerpieces and decorate. We were so surprised by all the
extra touches that your company provided. I wasn't expecting the wait staff to
pass trays of wine and when they did, that really made our social hour at the
beginning so much fun because it got people up and talking over a glass of
wine. Also, it was so nice tohave
a person manning the cake table and helping our guests get dessert. We did not
have to worry about one thing while we there, your staff took care of
everything. We were extremely impressed with the event and I would highly
recommend the Longacre House and Gourmet Express to anyone!
Thank you so much for making
Lauren & Joe's shower so wonderful!
I had an occasion arise for which I had no prior experience.
luck lead me to look into the Longacre House which again lead me to Alicia
Spurgeon and Gourmet Express Catering.
date of September 15 was reserved for me by Longacre staff and all the details
concerning the use of the room were concluded simply.
Spurgeon was my contact with Gourmet Express. She was thorough and
helpful beyond description. The event went off as planned and everyone
had a good time.
minor problem was reviewed and settled quickly and most fairly by Alicia and
you for having the wisdom to keep such fine people around Farmington Hills
Everything was perfect today. The
room was bright and cheery and the food was outstanding. Everyone commented on
the great service.
Your staff was very pleasant and
very accommodating even when we had to add another lunch at the last minute.
Service was great!
I am sure you know that one of our
members, Phyllis, had a medicalemergency
and Gloria was so helpful.. She not only recognized that the member was in some
kind of distress but also alerted us to thesituation.
Both servers were very concerned and helped us make Phyllis comfortable while
Even though the medical event was not expected everyone commented how much they
enjoyed the event. Thanks for everything.
Angela's bridal shower at the
Longacre House was everything we imagined. Such a beautiful setting,
excellent food and superb service. Your planning skills were much
appreciated and your staff was exactly as you promised - professional, friendly
