are saying


I loved my Goody Box so much, wine included for me. Highly recommend for a feel-good gift that will last for awhile. Warning, the cookies will not last as they are too delicious.

My husband and I loved your food yesterday. Do you take catering orders?

Loved the event on Saturday, the food was amazing and will definitely bring friends to the next one.

I love Welcome Merchant – in a time when trying to do the right thing seems overwhelming and full of Catch-22’s, it’s great to have a guide.
