GARDEN PARTNERS WITH BEST IMPRESSIONS CATERERS
Charlotte Company to Offer Exclusive Service
BELMONT, N.C. – Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden and Charlotte’s Best Impressions Caterers have joined together in a partnership to offer the caterer’s exclusive service to the Garden’s private event clients.
The agreement means that beginning Jan. 1, all clients who book events at the Garden will receive food and beverage service solely from Best Impressions. The Garden is one of the region’s premier wedding venues and conducts more than 100 events each year, from small corporate meetings, to luncheons, to social affairs, to black tie events and a wide range of weddings.
“We are pleased to have established this relationship with such a well-known and well-respected food service provider,” said Kara Newport, executive director of Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden. “We’ve worked with Best Impressions for several years on various levels and we’ve found the organization’s commitment to quality and service is a very good match for the garden. By having an exclusive provider we feel we can better offer consistent, quality service at completive price points for our clients. Also, this partnership allows us greater potential to expand our scope of service for our guests at other Garden events”.
For the past 2 years, Best Impressions Caterers have supported the Garden’s annual Wedding Showcase. This year’s showcase is on Sunday, Feb. 13 from noon to 5 p.m. and will feature the best of the area’s bridal industry to help brides to be with planning their dream wedding.

Best Impressions Caterers provides culinary services for a wide range of discriminated corporate, philanthropic, and social events; while The Grill & Picnic Company is designed to handle large-scale company picnics, backyard gatherings, and social events on a more casual basis.
Clients who already have events booked at the garden and are contracted with other caterers will be allowed to continue on their current path. The new agreement applies only to new un-contracted clients.
