Celebrate Together, From a Distance

Large in-person gatherings may be limited, but that doesn’t mean the party has to stop. We’re still celebrating together, we’re just doing it virtually now.

Unique Menus for Unique Events

Virtual events are a new option for many people, and are quickly becoming the popular choice for hosting an event. Unique events should be paired with unique and custom menus. That’s where we come in.

With over 40 years of experience executing multi-scale events, nationwide deliveries, and individually packaged custom meals, we’ll make sure your virtual event goes off without a hitch… unless of course you’re getting hitched!

We had a fantastic experience with Encore Catering - Magali and her team were super responsive and very helpful. We planned a virtual party which required sending meals to 50 plus people in the same day - everyone received their meal in great shape, delivered promptly and the food was fantastic. Would highly recommend Encore and look forward to using them again!

Encore catered my son's virtual Bar Mitzvah. David and Shira were great to work with and came up with great menu options for our guests. They were able to include options for guests from out-of-province and out-of-country by bringing in partner caterers. It was great to be able to include all of our relatives in this celebration. Guests loved the food and we got multiple compliments. Everything was delivered on time and a last minute hiccup was quickly resolved by David. We couldn't be happier with the service and are looking forward to working with Encore again.

I am the Insurance Administrator to the Group President at CAA Insurance Company. On several occasions, we have had the opportunity to experience Encore's virtual catering for our corporate events. Followings are some of the remarks my colleagues made as they were the attendees at the events where the lunch was provided by Encore: First and foremost, it was so yummy. I was pleasantly surprised with the presentation of the delivery of the meal. It came in a lovely well-sealed box. When I opened it, I was happy that they parceled everything individually. The next day's heating instructions were perfect & easy to follow. To my surprise, the meal tasted fabulous the next day. Overall my experience using encore had been 5 stars. Top-notch from ordering to delivery to packaging/presentation to the quality of food. I would recommend.

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

Ordered Christmas dinner for the family, hoping we'd be able to get together to enjoy it. Covid had other plans, forcing us to stay home and Zoom. Encore pivoted so beautifully you'd think they were ballet dancers; they broke up the order and delivered meals to three separate families in three different locations. Food was beautiful, top quality, delicious, and bountiful. It made us feel connected when we needed to the most. Encore staff is, to a person, professional, capable, talented and wonderfully responsive and human. Thank you, Encore, for always being at the heart of what creates memories, and brings families together.

Virtual Catering or Hybrid Catering, It's Your Choice

Modern Events Require Modern Solutions

As restrictions ease for indoor gatherings, people are starting to come together again. But not everyone at your event may be there in-person. Whether it’s a social party or a back-to-office hybrid work model, modern events require modern solutions. Our Virtual Catering and Hybrid Catering make it convenient and easier than ever to feed your employees wherever they are.

The Show Must Go On

With heavy restrictions throughout the pandemic, it became very difficult to plan events. But nothing was going to stand in our way of helping you celebrate with your family, friends, and colleagues. We put on our chef coats and thinking caps and created our Virtual Catering and Hybrid Catering options to show that the party can, and will still go on! 

Innovative Catering Tech

With companies like Zoom becoming a household name, it’s easier than ever to plan a virtual event. Whether you’re planning a conference meeting, product launch, birthday party, or even a wedding, virtual catering and hybrid catering might be the perfect choice for you.

Catering at Home, Or in the Office

Many companies are moving towards a hybrid work model, with some employees coming to the office while others continue to work from home. No matter where your employees are, our virtual catering and hybrid catering options have you covered.

The Best of Both Worlds

Working from home is here to stay for many companies, but there’s also a lot of interest in returning back to the office. Our virtual catering and hybrid catering offers the best of both worlds, so your staff and employees can eat delicious chef crafted cuisine from wherever they’re working.

Flexible & Accommodating Catering

The working environment is constantly changing as many companies begin transitioning to a hybrid work model. Looking to have a virtual event for employees working from home? No problem. Have employees returning to the office and looking for daily or weekly deliveries? That works too. As your catering needs continue to change, Encore is right by your side.

"The organization has used Encore Catering for two separate corporate events in the past few months. We found that the system was incredibly straightforward and the employees were able to easily sign up and choose their food option as desired. The delivery was on time and all of the employees were impressed and highly satisfied with the product as well as the service. Overall, Encore Catering provided a great experience and I would certainly recommend to others for their own corporate events."

"Nothing brings a community together like heart-warming food. When I learned about Encore's virtual catering service, I was excited to try it as their service has always been top-notch. Encore efficiently and diligently delivered beautifully packaged 3-course meals to meeting attendees. Facilitating attendees from the far corners of Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, and Atlantic provinces, Encore was able to arrange delivery for all. Encore Catering - before the pandemic was specialized in providing for large on-site banquets, but they pivoted to take the on-site banquet experience to virtual gatherings with the right kind of technologies. They are an example of real innovation."
