Testimonials

The University of British Columbia | Vancouver Campus

Good Morning, Kim,

Thanks so much to you, Chef Dave, Dana and the rest of the Canuel staff for such an outstanding job last night!!!  We have heard nothing but positive feedback on how wonderful the food was and that the staff were so efficient and polite.  Kudos to you all, we’ll be in touch next week to let you know when next years’ event will be held.  Cathy, Surrey School Board June 1, 2017

On behalf of the UBC Thunderbirds Sport Clubs Staff and Athletes, I cannot thank you enough for your catering services at our Awards Banquet this week. You and your team were absolutely fantastic and very accommodating in all aspects of our event. We really appreciate how efficiently everyone was served at the buffet, and the quick clean up time which allowed the programming of our event to be very smooth and timely. As well, from what I’ve heard, everyone loved the food!  Please let us know what the best way to leave you a positive review would be so that others can learn about your great service. I’d be happy to do so. Thanks again, we will definitely be passing on our recommendations for Canuel Caterers to anyone in need!   

Regards, Nicole Ferrier, UBC Thunderbirds Sport Clubs Assistant Coordinator | Department of Athletics & Recreation

First, would like to thank you for all your help. You made this so easy for us. Your staff were absolutely fantastic and efficient. Everyone loved the food, it was delicious and the set up looked beautiful. Many asked which company was catering (there will be a few weddings coming up), we made sure they knew your name.

I just wanted to let you know that we appreciated all the work you and your team did. I believe that people don't always receive the appreciation they deserve so are you able to give your chef, cooks and staff a big thank you on our behalf?

Thank you all for making our special day a great success

"Hi Kim,

I just wanted to thank you and your team for once again giving us a wonderful meal with great service.  We had lots of food, and nothing but compliments.
Please pass this on to all the people involved.  It is so seldom that people say thanks, one usually hears from customers to complain, and this is certainly not the case.

So again, thank you and we will keep calling you for any events. "

Special Olympics

I wanted to say how much I appreciated Canuel's service this week. From trying to plan with numbers that were unreliable at best to reacting to the needs day to day, your team was outstanding. And best of all I received a lot of compliments on the quality of the food which I wanted to pass on to you. The volunteers thought the food was delicious and it became a point of discussion where volunteers were encouraging others to go check it out because it was so goo. I've never seen that kind of response before. I've passed on these comments to Dan Howe as well and I won't hesitate to recommend you for future work.
