"Thank you so much to Shawn, Amanda and the whole staff, you folks were wonderful. We went for a tasting with some of our family and friends and everyone was so WOW’d by the food there was never any question who was going to do our catering for our wedding. Our wedding was held at Harper Mountain Lodge on September 1st, 2012. Having quality, delicious food at our wedding was very important to us and AYS helped us achieve that for our guests. Shaw really worked with us to help us customize our menu to reflect our personal thoughts and tastes. We really wanted to impress our guests so we arranged to have a whole Pig roast as part of the main course for dinner. It was so wonderfully delicious that our guests are still raving about it months later. Thank you for being so helpful and organized and for helping make our wedding day really special. We highly recommend AYS for any gathering or event"
Peter & Laura Evans | Harper Mountain, BC | Wedding Reception | September 1, 2012
"Even two weeks after our wedding we are still hearing about how great the prime rib was at our wedding! AYS did such an amazing job helping us pick our our wedding menu. The tasting was amazing and I would recommend it to everyone. Even with us being a half hour late to the reception the food was perfectly hot, the set up was amazing and the staff was extremely helpful, organized and really sweet. I am so thankful that we decided to go with AYS catering over a convention center or hotel, the personalized attention was really appreciated and made everything easy to organize. Thank you Shawn and Amanda for a job well done with our wedding, I would recommend you to everyone!

The food was wonderful - in particular, I was really pleased by your extra efforts with the pork belly, which I thought was fantastic, as did many others. But all of the food was great. Your staff were pleasant and efficient, and in general the food & cleanup was wonderful & well-received by all. A very professional showing with respect to food service, and it really added to Sarah's and my experience at the wedding"

“I have been working with Shawn Harnett and At Your Service on many different events since 2007. The quality, presentation and taste of the food that they present is fabulous. It is always a crowd pleaser. Shawn is also very easy and flexible to work with. He and his team have the “can do” attitude that really make things happen. They love a challenge and always rise to meet it – well. Shawn always ensures that there is plenty of his staff on for each event and is happy to have the staff help with other duties as available. I would not hesitate to recommend Shawn Harnett and At Your Service Catering to be a caterer for an event.”.

At You Service Catering catered our memorable wedding this past summer and lived up to its reputation of delicious customized food and service that put our needs first. Shawn and his staff were there to take care of our needs and showed complete respect and professionalism throughout the entire process. Our guests raved about the fresh food and continued to mention the ribs and pasta late into the next day. Thank you At Your Service Catering for being an integral part of our successful evening. We highly recommend you for any event and will look to you in any of our future plans.
Paul and Taya Patterson | Kamloops, BC
I would like to both thank and recommend Shawn and his staff with At Your Service Catering. As an event rental company I was please to use their services for my own corporate function and to find out how good they really are. From the planning stages to the dessert, Shawn and his staff handled themselves professionally and in a very friendly matter. We were entertaining other rental store professionals from Vancouver, Whistler, Squamish, Vernon and here in Kamloops all of whom expressed their praises to both myself and each other throughout the evening. The menu was perfectly prepared for our particular crowd and executed in a timely matter to accommodate our schedule of events. I will continue to very proudly recommend At Your Service Catering for brides, corporations, and other such potential clients.
Kelly VanGenne | Event Coordinator/Manager | Rogers Rental
Hi Shawn, Just wanted to say a big thank you, everything went great, we were very pleased. Great food, professional staff and you were all very helpful. Thank you for helping to make our wedding day perfect. We wish you the very best.
Ashley & Corey Buckmaster | Kamloops, BC
At Your Service Catering joined us for an afternoon of interactive cooking. They shared many tricks, ideas and secrets (sssshh) with us. After several hours of learning, interactive cooking, eating and laughing, it was hard to let these two go. It was unanimous the food was delicious and it was a wonderful way to spend a social couple of hours with friends, wine and food. I would definitely recommend letting At Your Service Catering come into your home.
PS: They left my kitchen immaculate.

Please accept our thanks to you and your team for a great bbq on Friday night. The food was delicious especially those hamburgers- nothing like homemade! All our guests commented on the friendly , attentive service. It was a wonderful start to our wedding weekend.
Janice Cann, Vice President, Sales & Strategic Markets | Cantrav Services Inc.
When my wife and I got married in September we sometimes felt like we were drowning in the details of the event. One of the many details we had to work out was the catering. We called Shawn Harnett, from At Your Service Catering and it was possibly the best move we made in our planning. Initially their prices and flexibility drew our attention. Then, when Shawn personally called us and offered to meet with us at our house to discuss his services we were pretty surprised. We immediately were impressed and reassured with Shawn's professional and relaxed way as he showed us our options. Together with Shawn we were able to come up with a custom package that exceeded our expectations for quality, flexibility and affordability.
We booked Shawn for our wedding reception as well as a custom hors 'doeurves time following our beach ceremony. We initially were going to take care of our small rehearsal dinner ourselves... but as time drew close we were overwhelmed with all the details and wanted to have something unique. I called Shawn with little time to spare to see if he might be able to do something to help. He suggested a whole-hog-roast as a unique option for us and for our guests. We were so excited by his availability and creativity that we decided to expand our rehearsal dinner to all of our guests. The pig roast rehearsal dinner and our salmon feast reception were both a huge success. All of our guests have talked about the quality of the food and the unique meals at our wedding.
What the guests didn't realize was how Shawn personally saved my wife and I from some massive headaches on the day of the wedding. There were some last minute administrative snaffoos and miscommunication with the people from our venue. Neither my wife nor I had the time, resources or capacity to handle the issues. I called Shawn, and he promised me he would take care of it. It was such a blessing to have Shawn step up and resolve the problems which went well above and beyond his job description.
I am so thankful that we had Shawn and At Your Service Catering handle our wedding. Their service far exceeded any expectations we could have had -they were a Godsend for our wedding. I highly recommend their outstanding service to anyone.
My wife wants me to add that Shawn and his staff are really funny, as well.
