During the past two decades, Holly Springs has transformed itself into one of the most attractive communities in the Research Triangle Region. Located in the heart of NC, Holly Springs remains a family-centered community. The town has a great quality of life with numerous outdoor activities featuring the annual town festival, Hollyfest, and 2 golf courses: Devils Ridge and 12 Oaks.
For the past few years, we’ve been very lucky to be the special event catering company of choice for the annual Holly Springs Economic Development Event. This year, the event was held at Daniel Dhers’ Action Sports Complex, located in the Holly Springs Business Park.
Daniel, a five-time X-Games gold medalist BMX rider, opened the park to serve two purposes. He’ll use it for his personal training and career headquarters, and he intends to keep the facility busy, by opening it to the public, as a recreational bike and skateboard course.
The Dhers Action Sports Complex will have features that will enable riders of all ages and skill levels to train, compete and just enjoy the action sports of BMX, mountain biking and skateboarding.
For the food, guests were served butlered hors d’ oeuvres consisting of Toasted Phyllo Cups with Buffalo Chicken, Celery & Gorgonzola. These were paired with our signature Mini Crab Cakes with Lemon Aioli and Fried Green Tomatoes with Roasted Sweet Pepper Aioli. Perfect appetizers for special event catering.
Stationary Hors d’ Oeuvres were served in a fun, buffet style. Whether you’re having a wedding reception, corporate or social event, buffets are great for all your special event catering needs.
We featured several of our favorite dishes on the buffet. A beautiful tray of Fresh Vegetables took the point. These were available with an array of different sauces and spreads, including our famous Roasted Red Pepper and Ranch Dip. Tasty Hot Shrimp Dip was served with Pita Points, Crostini and Assorted Crackers. For a heavy finger food option, we decided to go with delicious Chicken Kebobs with Tangy Barbeque Glaze.
Anchoring the buffet was a fun and interactive station for guests to create their own cheeseburger sliders. These mini-burgers were served with Slider Buns and the freshest Lettuce, Tomato and Onion this side of the Mississippi.
On the sweeter side, we offered guests a Dessert & Coffee Station featuring a Fresh Seasonal Fruit Kebob Tree, Assorted Cookies, Brownies with Powdered Sugar and Blondie Bars. A little something for everyone.
