Let’s be real. We’re not all Martha Stewarts or Bobby Flays in the kitchen—capable of cooking under pressure for many with a smile. DIY’s all the rage these days, but is the stress (and more importantly jabar) really worth it, especially when you’re a few hours away from socializing for hours? And if you’re treating your officemates or schoolmates after a long workday, do you even have the time?
Take the hassle out of party prep and planning, and leave the muscle work to the experts. Consider these food businesses with awesome party platters your fairy godmothers.
