In 2020, we bought lunch for our distribution center every Friday from June-December. Buona Beef fed 250 people on first shift and another 250 on second shift. They were always on time and the food was fantastic, Diana was our catering coordinator, and she was a pleasure to work with. No matter the size of the event, you can count on Buona to deliver.


It is important to recognize those that provide exceptional customer service and make a lasting impression on their clients. Your representatives are exactly those people. I cannot put into words how pleasant and uplifting the experience was. I have been in the customer service industry for 2 decades and can honestly say your coordinators are the best representatives I've had the pleasure of working with. They are a bright light during these difficult times we are all in.


To everyone at Buona who helped make our party such a huge success: THANK YOU!Over 50 people came and all raved about the food. Everyone stated going forward they would definitely use your catering services.
