Established in 1986, Best Events began when KANDU Industries started renting out the large cafeteria space in their building on Adel St. They hired Rodney Oksuita, only 22 years old, energetic, and enthusiastic, to develop the catering business. Oksuita agreed to take the position because he was given free rein to turn Best Events—then named “We Are Catering”—into something incredible from scratch. Now, Best Events has grown to such a success that it had to relocate to its current location on Center Ave, and it currently runs 4 different locations!
It is not uncommon for the Best Events kitchen to cater nearly 2,200 meals on any given Saturday, but that number does not shock our kitchen staff. Oksuita made his start in a banquet business where he was responsible for as many as 7,000 meals in a day. Best Events has catered to large parties, intimate small dinners, business lunches, United States presidents, politicians, celebrities, and anything in between.
While food is where the story began, Best Events is not exclusively a catering company. With a full floral department, hundreds of varieties of custom linens, a warehouse full of chairs, tents, tables, and some of the most unique décor you can imagine, one of the best things about Best Events is our ability to create any idea into reality. If we cannot buy it, we will make it.
Do you have a vision? Put us up to the challenge. We have created décor and menus for Alice in Wonderland weddings, superhero themed parties, created a table inspired by Katy Perry’s jungle music video (bright red pleather. You have to see it to believe it.) We can do classy, woodsy, earthy, rustic, chic, minimalistic, urban, Avant garde, but never boring. Let us show you WOW!
