Sustainability & Environmental Initiatives

As a family-owned company, Encore Catering is sensitive to the impact that sustainability has on humanity. Encore makes ethical choices to reduce our carbon footprint and promote sustainability to ensure the well-being of future generations. Whether it’s our waste-reduction efforts, sourcing local quality ingredients, or using environmentally friendly products, Encore takes meaningful steps to actively reduce its impact on the environment.

Reduce (Waste Avoidance): Materials are ordered in bulk to reduce packaging as well as carbon emissions and we favor local suppliers who use sustainable practices.  We provide water coolers on our premises to encourage reusable cups for drinking water. We also utilize a fleet management system to track our deliveries and develop routes that minimize mileage, while optimizing the capacity of our vehicles.

Recycle: Recycling Blue Bins are used for the disposal of appropriate materials to minimize environmental impact. All fryer oil is recycled after usage. We only use recyclable or compostable cater ware and have recently transitioned our recyclable cater ware into biodegradable disposables. We utilize renewable bamboo serving vessels and promote the use of refurbished products.

Education: Staff are continuously trained in ways to prevent food waste, including proper food rotation, food preparation techniques, and ongoing education regarding waste management best practices. Food waste is recorded and documented allowing progress tracking to minimize wastage.

Technology: Encore Catering uses modern purchasing software to prevent over purchasing, which can lead to excessive food waste. Our office and kitchen staff use iPad computers when possible, connected to cloud-based technology, to limit the use of paper.

Encore catered our daughter's and son in laws magnificent tented wedding at an outdoor venue on Aug 29/2021. They are extremely professional, competent, and very easy to work with. We are still receiving rave reviews about the quality of the appetizers, main dishes and extras throughout the night. The portions were beyond and all of our guests were totally satisfied. We were overwhelmed with calls, texts and emails from our guests about the quality of everything mentioned above. We were required to provide kosher food for certain of our guests and they too were extremely satisfied. If you are planning a large event, David Silber and his wonderful staff will provide you with a worry free event of the highest quality. We feel that we received excellent value. We highly recommend Encore and would utilize their services again should we be fortunate enough to make another function.

Encore Catering really exceeded all expectations for our event. I was seriously blown away by the process, support, service and staff provided and heard nothing but great things from all of our guests regarding all food served. They went above and beyond to ensure the event was successful, especially beyond the contract described. They've earned my trust, and I highly recommend them for those on the fence or thinking of looking for catering services. I will definitely reach out again in the future and recommend Encore to all my friends, family, and corporate/company events. Thank you so much for supporting our day!

Thank you for a great Easter dinner. It was my first time ordering and it was very easy. I appreciated the texts alerting me to the approximate time the food would be delivered and then a text when the delivery arrived. The food was packaged really well and re-heat instructions were conveniently located to the lids. The food was amazing! It was nice not to have to cook and to be able support a local business at this time.

Our original caterer wedding caterer backed out 4 days before our wedding day. Within a couple of hours of sending Encore Catering an email, David S reached out to me saying they could cater our wedding. David was a pleasure to work with, he took the time to ask questions to ensure everything was exactly how we wanted it, and he came through with an amazing job. I can’t imagine how much effort it took to get everything organized for us in such a short time, but with David and Shiras’ amazing organization, hustle and determination, they gave us the wedding we have always wanted. I can’t say enough kind things about David, Shira and the Encore staff, but the smiles on our and our guests’ faces said everything. Thanks again so much, it was a pleasure working with you!

Individually catered New Years Party with Friends. We had a Zoom New Years Party with friends catered by Encore. Encore delivered our menu to each of our homes consisting of Cesar salad , pasta appetizer, lamb/potatoes/veggies as a main with a delicious pecan torte dessert. The menu required preheating with instructions that were clear. It was a fantastic way for all of us to enjoy a friends zoom get together party, and we all felt that this was a great way to enjoy ourselves given the new reality. The food was absolutely delicious and unique . We felt we were in a fine food restaurant socializing with our friends in a relaxed and safe manner and we were able to enjoy a catered high quality meal. We would highly recommend the experience
