    I have attended a few events catered by The Pink Apron. The service is great and the food is always amazing. You have got to try their peach cobbler! The staff is also very friendly and accommodating. I'm looking forward to the next catering event.

    I used The Pink Apron for a surprise birthday party for my wife’s 25th. I needed food to be catered for the event because I was preoccupied with trying to keep my wife in the dark about the party. The Pink Apron not only prepared a great meal, but delivered it and had it ready before my wife and I arrived. Our favorite was the Mac and cheese it was a big hit at the party. Our coworkers who attended were talking about it many days after.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

We prefer to have a one on one consultation to help out customers cultivate an amazing experience.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Alondra Templeton started working as Chef de Partie under Master Chef Michael Templeton in 1991. In 1993 she was promoted to Sous Chef but also led the company's (Templeton Catering Services) sales and advertising team. It was there that she learned versatility and multi-tasking as she prepared food, hosted functions, built websites, and researched the industry. Ms. Templeton was promoted to Head Chef in 1997 and Executive Chef in 2000. She opened a catering company in 2002 (Alondra's Catering). From 2004 to 2007, she managed Quickstuff (Jack in the Box) and opened three stores in Texas and Arizona. The Houston store was a new construction project where she dealt with all aspects of the business including permitting, licensing, compliance and staffing. She launched The Dining Room (a family diner) in 2008.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

Catering for groups with a minimum of 75 guests begins at $15 per person, and includes an entree or meat, two sides, and salad.


How did you get started in this business?

I started working in a family business when I was 16 years old. Although I never dreamed that I would be doing this as a career, I continued working with the family and fell in love with cooking and the atmosphere that surrounds family events. I love to see people smiling and having fun. Every time I am in the kitchen, I am reminded of my great grandmother, who first introduced me the art of baking and cooking "from the soul". I want to share that experience with as many people as possible. The best way to do that is, well...catering.


What types of customers have you worked with?

I have worked with a variety of clientele from couples looking for special, private anniversary dinners to public figures and church officials. We offer a range of services suitable for weddings, baby showers, banquets, fundraisers, birthday parties, family reunions, and church events.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Recently, I catered a birthday party with about 60 guests that was simply amazing! The energy from the group was extremely high. Everyone was very engaging. Some guests were trying to swap recipes. I had the opportunity to cook some specially requested dishes onsite during the party (because we had to compare recipes). It was one of my most memorable experiences in the trade.


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Meet with them in person. It's important that you not only receive great food, but great service. Whomever you choose should not only be professional and knowledgable, but also personable enough to make you feel comfortable and at ease about your decision.


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Ask about variations of menu items if you know the types of tastes or dishes you are looking for (i.e. more or less spicy, something for kids, etc.). Also consider specialty items that are offered, which may be the best and most popular on the menu.
