Caterer of the Month: Cappuccino Catering with CCI Presents

Our Caterer of the Month is CCI Presents.  What makes them interesting is the vast array of beverages they offer in addition to the unique and beautiful presentations of their offerings.  When I first saw this company at a Choose Chicago event, I was blown away by the variety and also how attractive their beverages were.  There are lots of catering companies in this city, but there are few so dedicated to beverages.  Being a craft food and beverage city, variety and options are important, especially if you want to impress your guests.  It’s getting to be that time of year where we are excited for summer, but also, as planners having to look at events for fall and even holiday season.  CCI Presents is a great catering company to look at when wanting to create a different and fun experience for a breakfast or lunch – especially clients who are used to nothing but the same coffee and boiled water for tea.
