Catering Services

AVI Fresh offers catering services to fit any group or department budget needs. When it comes to a perfectly planned and executed catered event, no one comes close to us. . From backyard barbecues to upscale banquets, tell us exactly what you want and we’ll deliver! Remember, we can handle any special requests or adjust menu selections according to your needs. We will be happy to assist you at any time with placing your food and beverage orders.

Budget numbers will be required when placing a catering order with us. We will now automatically submit your catering invoices directly to Converse for payment. We will send you a copy of the invoice, but you do NOT need to submit it - this will be for you to view and request any changes needed before we submit for payment. Invoices will be completed and sent for payment 48 hours following the event. This means you will have 48 hours following the event to request any changes needed before the invoice is completed and sent in.

Please contact catering services for all of your catering needs. The catering department can be reached by calling Sherry Pagani in the catering office at extension 9617 or by email at spagani@avifoodsystems.com.
